Fear, Disgust and Hate

In FDH-OFF project on January 3, 2023 at 12:16 pm

New years resolution: Learn about possibilities to counter political narratives that use Fear-Disgust-Hate triggers.

My current understanding: Triggering fear and disgust is a successful communication strategy because normal critical responses (based on facts and logic) are bypassed. Adding hate to the mix provides a scape goat.

Hypothesis 1: The triggered response must have one or more, “OFF”-switches.

If so, describe these switches.

Hypothesis 2: Such switches can be used to balance out Fear-Disgust-Hate narratives

If so, create counter narratives


1. Conventional literature search and writing.

2. ChatGPT or similar, to aid in search and writing.
