Anne  Otto - Where Does the Hate Come from?


The psychological reasons for hate and racism

Racism, an extreme right-wing mindset, and an aggressive disparagement of "the others" have again become alarmingly socially acceptable. How was this possible? Where does this hate come from?

Anne Otto has wondered what the psychological mechanisms are that make people frequently make openly racist remarks, demand more authoritarian leadership or are even deeply convinced followers of blood and soil ideologies. This important book sheds light on the dark rooms in the basement of our feelings and thoughts.

It explains when it is worth discussing with right-wing followers and when not and sheds light on the mechanisms of extreme right-wing ideologies and the desire for authoritarianism.
