Can it happen here? Is it happening here?
The “F” word–fascism. This online dialogue between Yale philosopher Jason Stanley and co-initiator of RefuseFascism and spokesperson for Revolution Books Andy Zee is co-sponsored by the Brooklyn Book Festival. The event is part of “60 Defiant Days at Revolution Books.”
Under the Trump/Pence regime we have witnessed a program of blatant white supremacy and male supremacy, and xenophobic racism toward immigrants. Institutional norms have been steamrolled. Crude displays of American jingoism, draconian moves to criminalize and crush protest and dissent, as in Portland. What are the lessons of history, and in this unprecedented situation what are the appropriate forms of action to stop fascism?
Jason Stanley is a philosopher at Yale. His book, “How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us Against Them,” sets out essential features and dynamics of fascism.
Andy Zee is a co-initiator of RefuseFascism and spokesperson for Revolution Books. He makes the case that we are now being ruled by a fascist regime and why we need mass, sustained, nonviolent but determined protest to drive this regime from power and prevent the full consolidation of fascist rule. He is helping organize daily non-violent protest beginning October 3 united by the demand “Trump/Pence OUTNOW!”
