On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah Pasaran! we talk to Alex and Sam of the podcast 12 Rules For What [Twitter]. 12 Rules is ‘A podcast about fascists, nazis, and far right, from the perspective of the left’ and you can support the show via Patreon. With Dog Section Press, they’ve recently authored Post-Internet Far Right:
The far right has changed. Since the rise of the internet, it has scattered, diversified, and stuck itself back together. The internet has facilitated these tendencies, filtering and contorting familiar forms of activity and ideology, and pushed far-right groups to adapt, causing the decline of some formations and the break-up of others. But the far right has not gone away – far from it – it is more powerful now than it has been for a generation. It has produced new configurations of tactics, priorities, and goals. Those who have survived the arrival of the internet have found a greater capacity to exert power than at any point since the Second World War.
The far right is in a state of productive diversification. It has yet to cohere around a new stable formulation; however, it almost certainly will, and we must be ready for it.
