Chapter: 58. Is there a Problem with Fascism in Contemporary Paganism?

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45525


Contemporary Paganism's association with fascist ideologies is a growing concern. Right-wing politics have overlapped with Pagan values, leading to the rise of ethnonationalist Pagans who align with right-wing politics. Anti-modernism and neo-tribalism in Paganism further align with fascist principles. The countercultural nature of Paganism makes it susceptible to influences from the radical Right, suggesting a transformative impact on Paganism in the 21st century.
