So, let’s dig into the fear that motivates white supremacists and misogynists.
Are they in backlash/whitelash mode, afraid of losing centuries of entitlement?
Because their hate doesn’t start AS hate, but as fear.
And if we can understand what they’re afraid of, we can start to address those fears and their actions that now are increasingly desperate and increasingly unpredictable. Because just debating about punching Nazis isn’t good enough!
- What motivates them?
- How do we connect with them to pivot to a new world with more peace?
The Authoritarians by Bob Altemeyer! Very good read. Very good science.
and what does he think they’re afraid of?
Everything! “The Other” Gays. Blacks. Mexicans, you name it. Non- Christians for sure. I’m a little surprised you haven’t heard of it. Check it out and spread the news.
