On 1 January 2024, I published a short analysis at the European Intelligence Academy. There, I deal with the concept of so-called delegitimisation of state („Staatsdelegitimierung“), which has been established for some time by the German domestic intelligence service (Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution - Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz, BfV). This term, which is intended to remedy analytical deficits, is often criticised for its lack of practicability, but also for its arbitrary definition. I use the Scientology cult, among others, to show that in my opinion the criticism is justified and that a new field of observation within the responsible authorities is not absolutely necessary. Elsewhere in the text, I illustrate a Russian call to sabotage NATO organisations in Europe: A call that will certainly appeal to individuals and organisations.
