Lecture Crisis and Fascism – Ideologies and Characteristics will be held at 17h on December 7h 2012 in Student's Cultural Center within the pilot course of Anti-fascist Studies organized by Women's Space.

Why is fascism (Nazism) ideology of the crisis? Why is that belief of only unquestioned authority demanding unquestioned obedience (authoritarian culture) can offer salvation from the crisis? Why, within authoritarian culture, the cause can never be “Us” (as “victims” of crisis), but eventually “the Other” (as “causality” of crisis)? “Other”: (a) ethnic, religious, racial... “Other”: (b) ideological “Other”.


Ideology of the “Other” leads to desired homogenization, mobilization and militarization vs. “Other”. The war on “Other”, extermination of the “Other” is a precondition for crisis “overcoming”. In reality – the visible war on “Other” is also a condition of permanent, more or less, hidden exploitation of “WE”. And “We” it is understood to include members of ethnic-cultural community being homogenized within Nazi-fascist ideology and which is, consequently, in enmity with the “Other”. Finally, factually, results are: (a) striving to exterminate the “Other” and exploit (organized robbery) of the “Other” and (b) exploitation (organized robbery) of “We”.

This mode of observance enables comprehension of the true nature of Nazi-fascism in the World War II and origin of Yugoslav wars and transitional process today. Is fascism gone? Do we live in fascism? What are the ways of combating fascism?

We will discuss all this with prof. Đokica Jovanović Ph. D. sociologist from Niš, lecturer at Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade.
