THERAPY HANDBOOK FOR NEO-NAZIS

Even after the traumatising events of World War II, the idea of Nazism has not disappeared. Neo-nazism relates to the original, gloryfying ones nation, and excluding others. It is characterised by extreme racism, anti-Semitism, social Darwinism and the cult of power. The designer suggest treating it like a form of phobia that could be cured. A phobia is an irrational fear, distrust and hate towards objects, occurrences and situations and it limits a normal and satisfactory ability to function in society.
Once of the methods for its therapy is systematic desensitisation. The process aims to lessen the phobia by accustoming the patient through a growing exposition to the object of fear. The handbook uses this principle: first, we see a stereotypical “Aryan” Caucasian face the neo-Nazi approves of. Gradually, we can change elements of the face to those of Asian, African and finally, Semitic esemblance. The combination of te “Aryan” face with others causes the patient discomfort, but slowly, he learns to accept it by changing the shapes and colours of eyes, brows, hair, nose, ears, lips, skull, jawline and chin. The teraphy i smeant to habituate the patient to tolerance and acceptance of others, regardless of their ethnic origin.
