This presentation is largely based on a recent article published in Ricerca Psicoanalitica, entitled, “The Embodiment of ‘Us and Them’: Fascist Experience in a Traumatized World.” Deeply concerned about the rise of ultra-nationalism and the ascendance of authoritarian leaders in the western world, we came to feel that a great deal of what we called “fascist experience” had infiltrated our lives and those of our patients. We find support for our view that vulnerability to the us-them binary of fascist experience pervades our world in Wilhelm Reich’s masterful and prescient book, The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933/1942). He suggests that “. . . there is not a single individual who does not bear the elements of fascist feeling and thinking in his structure.“
