The Management of Hate

This chapter examines the elaboration of and experimentation with diverse therapeutic and reformative procedures on which the governance of hate in Germany relies, with the aim of highlighting their sometimes desperate, sometimes bizarre struggles to exorcize the right-wing extremist malaise from bodies, minds, and souls. It shows how the excesses that present themselves in such efforts bear witness to the troubled place reserved for right-wing extremism in contemporary Germany. The chapter considers three interventionist modalities designed to reform political delinquents, each of which locates the right-wing extremists in a different site: states of resentment within the affective self, cognitive incoherencies within the rational individual, and corporeal deviance within the physical body. It explains how the affective subject, the rational subject, and the corporeal subject emerged as particularly salient domains for the management of hate.
