Fear and Tensions in the Belle Époque

From: The Great Class War 1914-1918


Early 1900s. The elite is convinced that the revolutionary danger is increasing rapidly, and also

feels threatened by the revolutionary plans of ethnic minorities, by the designs of

feminists, and by the perceived menace of hordes of “inferior” races such as the

Chinese, the “yellow peril” . . .
