Fascism Then and Now
Peter Bratsis, Michael Pelias, Dan Karan, Alex Steinberg, David Worley

Friends of the MEP and the Left community at large are invited to discuss the meaning and signficance of fascism and how to recognize it and struggle against it in world politics today. We hope to debate questions such as: What is the nature of fascism in relation to nationalism/racism, misogyny, social/community dissolution? Is or is not the Trump phenomenon an example or at least a precursor of fascism in the USA? Are there important political movements in other countries that could be called fascist? Is the social psychology of fascism the same today as it was in the 20th century? Are theAre there other forms of authoritarian capitalism that are not fascism, and why might it matter? Current facilitators are Peter Bratsis, Michael Pelias, Dan Karan, Alex Steinberg, David Worley (moderator). 

Others are welcome to join as facilitators; each facilitator will offer a three minute (no longer) opening statement, after which the floor will be open for general discussion.
