EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

contrastare la cancel culture copertina

The cover

  • The cancel culture was born, between France and the Anglo-Saxon countries, to fill the void left by the decline of communism, replacing it with postmodern content and hatred for the West. It has been able to thrive also thanks to the multiplier effect of social networks.
  • In Italy the phenomenon is less widespread than abroad, due to some factors that make it more difficult to take root (disillusionment with ideologies, the Left's attitude towards national culture, greater protection for dissenting academics, more young people oriented to the right, absence of minorities from former colonies or with histories of discrimination).
  • Politics must react, starting with primary and secondary education, by including the valorization of national and Western history in school curricula. Local governments must promote and support various cultural initiatives.
  • The world of right-wing culture must move from an artisanal to an industrial stage, investing in both literature and film. This may require networking, consorting or merging to create larger, more competitive entities.
