/236/ Green Nazi Paedos ft. Lily Lynch (UNLOCKED)

On the German Greens’ shady history.
 
Journalist Lily Lynch, editor of Balkanist, joins us to talk about her recent investigations into the Green Party, who are now back in power in Germany.
 
The 68ers attempted to combat authoritarianism and Nazi legacies through sexual liberation, building on the work of Wilhelm Reich. How did this lead some small groups associated with the Greens to advocate paedophilia – and even to accept former Nazis into their ranks?
 
Later the Greens would fully embrace war. We discuss how their emphasis on “maturity” and multilateral humanitarianism became the means through which they justified their new hawkish stance and adoption of NATO’s cause.
