Re: <nettime> Are we in 1935 Germany or 21st Century Netherlands?

I am sorry, you are mixing two buzzwords, neoliberalism and fashism, that say more or less nothing. Please accept the fact that there are still differences to Berlin 1935. You will need better arguments to fill the vacuum in Dutch society that seems to play for Wilders. Maybe something like "an intolerant society is a dead society". What are the arguments of Wilders?

Best, H.

Dear Friend and Colleagues :

How to stop the tidal wave of political extremism in the Netherlands
today? The extreme right PVV and its leader Geert Wilders in
particular have hijacked virtually all the debates on culture,
education, minority rights and freedom of speech, but their
neo-liberal agenda smacks of a particular brand of fascism of by gone
days, as they have co-opted virtually the entire Dutch Political
establishment into this horrific misadventure.
