Psychopathology of politics

Representative democracy is not immune from the actual restoration of fascism. Political irrationality raises the individuals to whom we can ascribe a number of psychopathological symptoms. This poses questions of why a prominent part of population follows such individuals and whether we can speak here about mass psychopathology. The article ascribes the causes to the rise of individualistic partition and to the disintegration of community into the crowd of un-socialised infantile individuals and authoritarian personalities who are not capable of accepting the burdens of responsibility, and are therefore resorting to the emotional release of hate speech. It can be solved only within radicalised democracy on the basis of the recuperation of community and an inclusive pluralistic society, which is overcoming neoliberal individualism.
