EX NEO-NAZIS FIGHTING THEIR FORMER BELIEFS

Post  Lamplighter on Fri Dec 09, 2016 11:06 am

When neo-Nazis have doubts, there's a number to call

SCHLEIFE, Germany (AP) December 09, 2016 — Felix Benneckenstein was a rising star on Germany's far-right scene, a young songwriter whose rousing guitar anthems made white nationalism sound romantic and rebellious. But when fellow neo-Nazis attacked a friend, Benneckenstein found the doubts he'd ignored for years coming to the surface.

"It was a rude awakening," he recalled. "You have an idea of what's wrong with the world and believe you've discovered hidden truths... And to then realize that everything you've done to yourself and others in the past years was built on lies is a bitter moment."

After almost a decade on the far-right fringes, the 30-year-old is now part of a small but effective network of former neo-Nazis helping people to leave the scene. Spread across Germany, they work closely with an organization called EXIT that provides quick, unbureaucratic advice to extremists who want out.

Spooky! I was just reading about him on Salon, or Slate...or similar. Will try and find it again.
