BeschreibungSpiritual defence ( Geistige Landesverteidigung ger; 'Défense [nationale] spirituelle' fr) was a political-cultural movement in Switzerland which was active from circa 1932 into the 1960s. It was supported by the Swiss authorities, certain institutions, scholars, the press and intellectuals. Its aim was the strengthening of values and customs perceived to be Swiss and thus create a defence against totalitarian ideologies. The movement first directed its attention towards National Socialism and fascism; later, during the Cold War, taking a stance against communism. Even when the movement was no longer actively promoted by the authorities, it remained alive well into the 1980s; today Swiss politicians frequently still use terms and metaphors from the spiritual defence ideology.
