Review of Radikalisierungsmaschinen: Wie Extremisten die neuen Technologien nutzen und uns manipulieren

I just finished reading Radikalisierungsmaschinen: Wie Extremisten die neuen Technologien nutzen und uns manipulieren by Julia Ebner.📚 I’ve got the recommendation for this book via the Episode DA009: RECHTSEXTREME PARALLELWELT of the Denkangbeot Postcast.

The book shows how humans are radicalized with the help of the Internet. It has a main topic on the right radicalism. It also shows some of the aspects of radical Islamic groups as well. I was missing any mention of left radicalism in the book :-) as I’m pretty sure these are also using the same mechanisms to achieve their goals.

The picture shown in this book is fearsome. By hiding behind repurposed words, these groups try to be mainstream compatible and get the masses onto the street with the same old radical messages.
