Roger Griffin: Fascism has an existential dimension
Excerpt from an interview with Roger Griffin, Professor of Contemporary History at the Faculty of Humanities at Oxford Brookes University in England. Griffin is one of the world's most renowned contemporary fascism researchers. We talked to him in Berlin in May 2019 about new fascist developments and how one should meet them.
«Fascism is a radical solution to the problems of not knowing who you are, where you are and where you belong.» ... «The effective way of dealing with the right is to not give in to the language of hatred and demonization but to try to use methodological empathy to understand what right you're dealing with and then to use a mixture of knowledge and activism to deal with each individual right. Then there is infinite hope.» (Roger Griffin)
