Vad gör en facist?: Individen, mikropolitiken och aktivismens logik
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences.
2019 (Swedish)In: Tidskrift för litteraturvetenskap, ISSN 1104-0556, E-ISSN 2001-094X, Vol. 49, no 2-3, p. 47-56Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The article contains a discussion of fascism and anti-fascism, with a focus on the role of the individual subject. The author turns first to Theodor W. Adorno and then to Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari in order to question a common understanding of the constitution of fascism. While Adorno sees the individual subject as the locus of a possible anti-fascist resistance, he also regards modern individualism as one of the crucial factors behind the surge of fascism. Deleuze & Guattari opens another perspective on fascism through their distinction between micro- and macropolitics, and a discussion of ”segmentarity”. Hence the article argues that the boundary between fascism and humanism/liberalism/democracy is not as clear as it is normally understood today, when ”fascism” tends to become the abject of modern civilization. This argument is finally developed through a discussion of two very different contemporary examples of activism. Fascism, the article concludes, is in one sense a latent possibility within modern society, rather than its opposite.
