Susanne Brandtstädter argues that,  where the realities of market liberalisation and governing through law are experienced as corruption, feudal superstition recreates the conditions to realise liberated peasant subjects: a participatory local public sphere, political visibility, investments in the public good, and a new collective property.

The key focus for Susanne Brandtstädter, Peter Wade and Kath Woodward is the conjuncture in which culture – claims of a collective distinction concerning heritage, location, moralities and values – has become the terrain of political struggles over the subject of rights in national and international politics, the re-allocation of entitlements, definitions of value, and new forms of political representation.

In his review article Sindre Bangstad refers to Jeremy Waldrons  defense of the regulation of hate speech positions itself within a liberal framework concerned with the balancing of individual rights.

 -With The Harm in Hate Speech, Prof. Jeremy Waldron (New York University School of Law and All Souls College, Oxford) has simply written the most balanced, moderate and eloquent defense of laws restricting hate speech to date. Whether politicians, legislators and academics will be prepared to engage honestly and reflectively with his arguments remain to be seen.

Signe Howell is arguing that the Chewong’s understanding of causality in human existence has no conceptual room for luck or fortune. Metaphysically derived knowledge is applied in daily and ritual practice, ensuring a life that, ideally, is prosperous and devoid of unwanted or dangerous events. In egalitarian Chewong society, every person is responsible for the correct application of this knowledge for the benefit of oneself and others. The premise for well-being is dependent upon the relationship between every individual Chewong man and woman and the numerous conscious beings that populate their environment. Sociality can be understood only from this perspective.

On the anniversary of the terrorist attack on 22/7 2011, Sindre Bangstad has written a summary of the trial and the public discussion attached to it.  – This much is clear, he writes: the now thirty-three year old Anders Behring Breivik has already lost the battle to shape the future of multicultural Norway. And we will say this again and again: history does not – and never will - absolve anyone for human evil of the kind perpetrated against innocent children, women and men in Norway.

I The end of history and the last man (2006) lanserer Francis Fukuyama hypotesen om at menneskeheten i dag for første gang står uten en forestilling om en alternativ framtid. Muligheten for å drømme om å skape et fundamentalt annerledes samfunn er undergravet av det liberale demokratiets seiersgang. Denne samfunnsformen kan simpelthen ikke overgås av en fantasi om noe alternativt, skriver Halvard Vike i sin innledning.

Med bakgrunn i Jonas Jakobsen og Odin Lysaker sitt innlegg «Ytringsfrihetens grunnlag og praktisering» hvor det vises til en lite rettferdig lesning av Jürgen Habermas sin "offentlighetsteori", viser  Sindre Bangstad og Arne Johan Vetlesen blant annet til at ny teknologi har skapt en helt annen mediesituasjon som igjen har endret hvordan ytringer praktiseres i det offentlige rom.

Forlagene Manifest og Flamme har tatt initiativ til en intellektuell mobilisering mot den nye høyreekstremismen. Et større antall norske akademikere – religionshistorikere, statsvitere, medievitere, kjønnsforskere, osv. – tar i denne antologien for seg hver sin påstand fra det originale terrormanifestet. Resultatet er en faglig tilbakevisning, så å si punkt for punkt, av terroristens tankegods.

Vi har lokalt tre bidragsytere i dette akademinske svaret på den nye høyreekstremismen:

Anne Hege Grung tilbakeviser påstanden «Islam er en kvinneundertrykkende religion» i terrormanifestet.

Sindre Bangstad viser til at Breiviks forestilling om et transhistorisk 'homo islamicus',  gjenspeilet  i  sitatet «Muslimenes religiøse verdier endrer seg aldri», ikke har dekning i forskningslitteraturen.

Thomas Hylland Eriksen   imøtegår en av terroristens mange mytiske fremstillinger, nemlig påstanden om at «Norsk kultur blir utslettet», i vårt samfunn med innflytelse fra flere kulturer.

Sindre Bangstad gir et  detaljert og omfattende overblikk over bruk av religionskritisk begrepbruk sett i et norsk og internasjonalt lys de siste årene,  i siste nummer av Kirke og Kultur . Hans overordnede utgangspunkt for å følge ytringsdebatten er spørsmålet om hvor grensen mellom legitim og nødvendig religionskritikk i et liberalt og demokratisk samfunn, og hatefull islamofobi har vist seg i mediabildet?
