If we are to defeat the fascist consolidation of power that we are witnessing in this historical moment, we need to understand the depths of whats happening. And we need many more people to understand them as well. To that end, Refuse Fascism Philly is hosting a teach-in at the Wooden Shoe getting into the roots of this fascism, the key aspects of what the regime has already done, and where all this is going.
Fascism is not just a gross combination of horrific reactionary policies. It is a qualitative change in how society is governed. Fascism foments and relies on xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny, and the aggressive re-institution of oppressive “traditional values.” In Trump’s election campaign he encouraged and fed on the threat and use of violence to build a movement and come to power. In his inaugural address he pledged allegiance only to this movement. What is crucial to understand is that once in power fascism essentially eliminates traditional democratic rights.
Join us and dig into what this means, and the implictions for what is to be done about it.
