Ruth Ben-Ghiat is Professor of History and Italian Studies at New York University and an expert on fascism and authoritarianism. Her new book is Strongmen: From Mussolini to the Present.
Ruth Ben-Ghiat warns that Donald Trump’s threats of violence against the American people are very real.
Ruth Ben-Ghiat explains that the American people (including the country’s political elites) remain in denial about the existential dangers of neo-fascism and autocracy because to admit the truth would mean they would have to take action against such forces.
Chauncey DeVega reflects on America’s extreme descent into neo-fascism – now with the Trump regime’s gestapo secret police attacking the American people in Portland and soon other cities as well. Because power is not something abstract but works on and against real people, Chauncey also shares three stories about how we the people can fight back.
And Chauncey DeVega is very excited about lemurs and their special sexy cologne.
