A crisis rarely comes alone - and starts much earlier than we think.
This is precisely when it is important to act quickly and prudently at the same time. Because crises always happen in the same way, they have a clear dramaturgy. The good thing is: You often still have many options to actively manage a crisis and, above all, to emerge from it unscathed. We support you in the event of an emergency – but preferably beforehand:
To prevent you from slipping into the next crisis in the first place, we work with you to install a crisis airbag system consisting of clear messages, training and stress-tested processes.
They talk and talk, mix facts with fakes or, conversely, elevate the individual case to the rule. They insult the media and construct blanket images of the enemy, they quote “the people” and stir up hatred, they reach deep into the bag of tricks of rhetorical propaganda, insult and shout down others. If necessary, they can always take refuge in the role of victim. They are populists and the so-called New Right. The result: The AfD currently has a 27.9% share in Saxony and 18.4% in Hesse. The new right-wingers are successful and extremely dangerous for our democracy. A real social crisis that threatens to escalate.
How can we counter their populism without becoming populist ourselves? And without making their outrage discourse even bigger?
We deal with these questions in our program “Arguing with the new Right” for members of the German Federal Parliament or state parliaments, students and teachers, as well as activists and NGOs, which has been awarded by the Initiative for Cultural & Creative Industries of the Federal Government. We analyze your methods together and work very practically and interactively on democratic storytelling, argumentation techniques and emotional messaging.
