Is it better to ban the neo-Nazis, or to educate people on why they’re wrong?

I wonder if this will do any good, or simply drive these people and their genocidal beliefs underground.

It is in line with the new definition of anti-Semitism that the UK government has announced it is supporting, and that shows a certain amount of initiative to ensure that it is supported.

And it follows the conviction of Thomas Mair, the murderer of Jo Cox, with positive action.

But I would like to see the government introduce education on the reasons the opinions held by these groups are abhorrent.

You beat these people by proving them wrong, not by giving them the opportunity to make martyrs of themselves.

A neo-Nazi group that celebrated the murder of the Labour MP Jo Cox is to become the first far-right group to be proscribed as a terrorist organisation by the home secretary.

Support or membership of National Action, an antisemitic white supremacist group, will become a criminal offence under the Terrorism Act 2000, pending approval from parliament.

National Action has held demonstrations in UK cities with banners that say “Hitler was right”, and speakers have been filmed telling a small group of supporters about “the disease of international Jewry” and that “when the time comes they’ll be in the chambers”.

The group has also been filmed training supporters in hand-to-hand combat, and putting up posters across Liverpool and Newbury declaring them “white zones”. The slogan on its website is “Death to traitors, freedom for Britain,” which was the only statement given in court by Cox’s murderer, Thomas Mair.

Alt-right? What’s the difference between these people and Nazis?

Very little, it seems.

According to Wikipedia, “The altright is a loose group of people with far right ideologies who reject mainstream conservatism in the United States.”

The article goes on to say: “The alt-right has no formal ideology, although various sources have stated that white nationalism is fundamental. It has also been associated with white supremacism, Islamophobia, antifeminism, homophobia,  anti-Semitism, ethno-nationalism,  right-wing populism, nativism,  traditionalism, and the neoreactionary movement.”

White supremacism, anti-Semitism and right-wing populism would have swung it for me – they’re Nazis in a new suit (or perhaps uniform).

But it seems they are self-identifying as Nazis as well. Take a look at this alt-right logo:
