Before we get into this conversation about fascism how do you define it?
Fascism is an ideology based on power loyalty and fear of the other
where the other is defined ethnically or in terms of nationality or religion.
Fascist politics can happen in a Democracy.
That’s what we’re seeing across the world right now in Brazil in the United States we’re seeing fascist social and political movements in democracies and what you have to look for when that happens is the press to undermine the democracy from within to undermine its institutions and to create new institutions fascist institutions
… we have something that might look like a militia a national police force whose job it is to do the president’s bidding and that looks like an institution that doesn’t belong in a democracy
and so on an so forth
