André F. Lichtschlag (* 1968 in Grevenbroich ) is a German publicist and publisher . In his publishing house Lichtschlag Medien und Werbung KG , the monthly magazine appears strangely free , of which he is the publisher and editor-in-chief . Lichtschlag is also one of the authors of Junge Freiheit .
Lichtschlag passed his Abitur in Grevenbroich in 1987 and then completed his community service in Aachen. He was trained as a publishing clerk in Düsseldorf and studied political science , economics and sociology at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn and graduated in 1999 with the degree Magister Artium .
As a high school student he joined the Junge Union . After Lichtschlag graduated from high school, he became a member of the European Federalist Party (EFP) . In his early twenties he joined the Free Democratic Party (FDP) in Grevenbroich. He switched to the Rhineland Party , of which he was a member for two years. In his mid-twenties, Lichtschlag returned to the FDP. He has not belonged to any party since 2000 at the latest. 
In 2002 he was a co-founder of the Max Stirner Society   (2002-2013), which in 2006 distanced itself from him. In 2003, Max Stirner and Anarcho-Capitalism , the article written by André Lichtschlag, was published in Max Stirner's book Der Einzige No. 22 with the title Max Stirner and Capitalism .  
He is the editor of Edition Sonderwege ,   which is published as an imprint by Manuscriptum-Verlag . Among other things, he edited Akif Pirinçci's books Deutschland von Sinnen and Die Große Verschwulung .    
According to his own statement, Lichtschlag stands “on the side of the libertarian resistance”  and is an opponent of the welfare state . The libertarians rejected democratic co-determination and demanded - no more than - "self-determination."  
Lichtschlag described Caspar von Schrenck-Notzing , the founder and publisher (1970–1998) of Criticón magazine , as a “journalistic role model”.  In 2000, Lichtschlag published an article in the libertarian magazine espero (1994-2013).
In a conversation with the weekly newspaper Junge Freiheit in 2003, Lichtschlag described himself as a “libertarian” and emphasized that he was looking for journalistic collaboration with “ national conservatives”. Germany would "mixture of a successful bureaucrat , State fans Umwelthysterikern, men haters and Antifa bosom reigns." Against these "pollution" had a "common strong wave of fresh air" to be organized.  The Junge Freiheit congratulated Lichtschlag on November 16, 2007 on the new website and published an interview that was strangely free , the Junge Freiheitwith Arne Hoffmann , author of ef and Junge Freiheit , led to the Eva Herman case the day before. 
Lichtschlag also writes articles for Junge Freiheit and the magazine Sezession , which is published by Götz Kubitschek's Institute for State Policy . According to Kubitschek, Lichtschlag had originally approached him in order to "- as a right (by which Kubitschek means himself) - to provide him with a place of free speech." Kubitschek named the common opposition to the 1968 movement as one of the most important points of contact with Lichtschlag . 
Lichtschlag achieved public attention in 2004 with his campaign against Attac and the NPD . The satirical group Gustloff, where Lichtschlag is named as an intern, had published a website with the slogan “Globalization is not fate - for a world of sovereign nations!” On the Russian web address www.npd-attac.da.ru, on which it was claimed that the NPD and Attac have agreed on a joint website.  He wanted to show "that nationalism and socialism are two sides of the same coin". 
In an article for Die Welt in 2006, Lichtschlag criticized the voting behavior of the “net state profiteers”, including civil servants, politicians, the unemployed and pensioners , and suggested that we think about depriving them of the right to vote , since they “with their majorities are still productive People ”would vote down.   In the same article, Lichtschlag compared the alleged “willingness of high achievers to emigrate” with the mass exodus in the end of the GDR. Andreas Karsten criticized Lichtschlag in the specialist journal Blätter für Deutsche und Internationale Politik , because his theses are based on incorrect numbers or sources in his own magazinewere peculiarly free and accused him of "careless handling of wrong numbers" in this context. 
The political scientist Karin Priester examined the transitions between libertarians , right-wing populists and right-wing extremists . Since 2007, Lichtschlag, the publisher of peculiarly free, who claims to be striving for an alliance of radical libertarian and national conservative forces, has also been seeking proximity to right-wing extremism. As the ideological link between libertarianism and right-wing extremism, social Darwinism functions as an ideology of the naturally willed superiority of the strong over the weak, the elite over the masses. 
In 2009 Lichtschlag received the Gerhard Löwenthal Prize for Journalists from the Foundation for Conservative Education and Research  and in 2015 the Roland Baader Award from the Institute for Austrian Asset Management .
