Mind Fuck: The Mass Psychology of Creeping Fascism by Neil Faulkner
Housmans Bookshop, 5 Caledonian Road, London, N1 9DY.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A torrent of nationalism, racism, misogyny, and irrationalism is sweeping the world. The authoritarian right and new forms of fascism have become a clear and present danger. Neoliberal capitalism has torn society apart. Alienation has reached an unprecedented level. Extreme narcissistic individualism has become a pandemic. In this little book, Neil Faulkner draws on Marxist-Freudian theory to provide an updated analysis of the mass psychology of fascism, and to argue for a progressive counter-offensive based on love, labour, and reason.
