It's commendable, but it's not scalable. The amount of racists you can deradicalize wil never outweigh the amout that buy into the alt-light, alt-right garbage.

That being said...life after hate was turned down by the trump administration. They're pretty good.

Yes, they're the one group I've found. I have the founder's biography on my to-read list.

The scale question is interesting. Those who do interventions with Muslims will say the same thing, that it often takes extensive one-on-one engagement. But I'm not sure that's a reason not to try. It certainly won't scale if nobody's doing it.

I see groups like Identity Evropa making concerted efforts for the minds of college students but I don't see the same intensive, persuasive efforts from our side.

... frankly, it won't scale period, unless a huge amount of population dedicates a lot of time to this. Which is to say it really won't.

Diversity of tactics, though... An appealing part of this kind of work is that I can do it at home after my kid goes to bed. It doesn't have to scale to be worthwhile.
