The School as a political influencer : The threat against liberal democracy (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose with this essay is to find out if

neo-fascist connection will change the next generations

citizens (in this specific case ninth graders) opinions about a specific political party. In modern day Sweden,

only one political party stands for political ideas that can be seen as neo-fascist (Sverigedemokraterna). What

would happen if the next generation citizens saw this connection and how would they respond? That’s what

this essay is all about, are the students “positive”, “negative” or “on changed” to a neo-fascist political

party? The studies research type is mainly of a qualitative nature but

quantitative elements occur. The data is

coming from two classes of ninth graders that answered eight questions each. The questions remained the

same for all students but with one crucial difference. One of the classes answered the questions before they

had been informed of the neo-fascist connections that Sverigedemokraterna can be linked too. And the

other class answered the questions after they had been informed.

The difference in data seems to point out that the next generations citizens seem to think that it´s worse to

be a fascist then a racist. It seems that if a political party is seen as racist party the image deters possible

voters. Simultaneously the same racism that deter people also gain votes, therefore it could be said that

racism has two faces. If you compare racism and fascism it seems like fascism don´t follow the same
