The danger of a rise in facism

Post by newcastle » Mon Apr 16, 2018 5:05 am

An interest NY Times op ed from Madeline Albright, former US secretary of state.

Not the usual critique of Trump but a reasoned analysis of where he's leading US and why demagogues, dictators and - yes - facism world wide are gaining strength by using his example.

Albright was an Austrian Jew who got out before being gassed - you wonder whether the new western urban middle class care much about anything let alone have the imagination or intelligence to avoid any new Fascism. I know they don't. It should be an interesting and ugly next 20 years.

One thing you can rely upon as did Sir Oswald Mosley Bt, and the 10/12 Dukes that supported him is that the upper class will be powerful in harnessing working class and lower middle class anger and racism - and turn it to their advantage - Brexit. The mob is easy to manipulate - because they are stupid.
