Abstract

We intend to make this research an analysis of the formation of the strange society, under the category of unhemlich - a Freudian concept, developed in psychoanalytic theories - this relates to the formation of groups and authoritarian personality in texts of the philosopher TW Adorno. In this sense we seek here to find out how groups are formed and how the fascist leaders develop and communicate aggressive speeches and convince crowds. Freud, in such important instruments as malaise in civilization and Mass Psychology and review of the self, attributes this to the effective mobilization of primitive repressed desires, both erotic and destructive in nature. The focus of this research is the study by Theodor Adorno on the resources used by fascist agitators in the United States in 1940 to promote fascist nature of discourse from a background of emotional connection with the psychology of masses studied by Freud.
