I cannot speak for the Doktor, but I can speak from my own personal experiences. Your mileage may vary, local ordinances and cultural mores could open up possibilities I was not allowed to try.

In my experience, curing the Nazi is simply not done. It is a terminal condition. It may go into remission, even for the rest of the life of the afflicted, but it never really goes away. The way to force remission is open demonstration of what happens to Nazis.

I know a guy who lives in the back country of PA. When he was a teen, his friends fell in with some people that were part of the KKK, and he tagged along. As a teen, he didn't know the larger context. As he grew up, he woke up, got disgusted, and ragequit that whole social branch. Today, (10+ years later) I can certify that he's fine.

I think that if the condition is based on genuine ignorance, it can be cured.
If the condition is based on choices one has made consciously, it is there at a deep level and will take an enormous labor to free onself.

In both cases, the person has to want to free themselves - you cannot impose a change like that on someone else. The change has to originate from within them, from a genuine desire, or the waves and winds will always pull them off course.

Honest answer to an honest question?

Watch Contrapoints.

Failing that, there are tons of materials available on how UK deradicalisation programs work.  And cult deprogrammers too.

You have to get inside of the worldview and blow it up. Not through arguments, per se, as arguing only entrenches the worldview. But show them that their worldview a) doesn't work b) hurts those they care about and c) actively goes against their own values (Imams are brilliant at point C. Nothing gets Islamic terrorists recanting their beliefs faster than being guilt-tripped by an Imam)

How does one cure the Nazi?

A big fat rock
Or quarters in a sock
That's how we cure the Nazis.

It may seem cruel
But the Nazi's a tool
So we gotta cure the Nazis.

Blood isn't pretty
But neither is an alt-right city
So get out there and cure the Nazis.

There is no reason to,
Be ashamed of poetry. It,
Is natural. But you should,
Still do it in private,
And wash your hands afterward.

1: No, not the only one.

2: Thank you for identifying the tune, that would have bothered me for weeks.

I think my brain was trying to do something with "That's Amore", but couldn't quite make it work.
