Abstract: Uma reflexão sobre o lugar das ancestralidades, das memórias e das identidades nas políticas contemporâneas parece tornar-se imperiosa quando assistimos ao modo hábil como a extrema-direita vem alavancando o seu crescimento na fácil caricatura das políticas identitárias, tidas como ameaçadoras de vetustos costumes, apologistas do politicamente correcto ou avessas à liberdade de expressão. Este crescimento da extrema-direita tem parasitado o modo como a acumulação neoliberal cria, em significativas parcelas da população, um cenário de expectativas socioeconómicas minguantes. Um tal quadro favorece populismos de direita que se declaram anti-sistema ao mesmo tempo que mantêm o extrativismo capitalista a salvo.
In pursuit of expansion, the far-right has been astute in leveraging a simplistic caricature of identity politics, casting it as a threat to old ways of life, an apology for political correctness and an attack freedom of expression. In this context, a reflection on the place of ancestry, memory and identity in contemporary politics seems crucial. The far-right has grown as a parasite upon neoliberal accumulation, which has created diminishing socioeconomic perspectives for large parts of the population. This situation has favoured right-wing populisms that declare themselves to be anti-systemic while they in fact protect capitalist extraction.
