Interview with Shane Burley
Joe Clement talks with Shane Burley about fascist movements today and how they want to transform society into brutal hierarchies. They consider how different systems of oppression rooted in identity and ability ( e.g. sexism, racism, able-ism, cis-sexism, etc.) are mobilized by fascists. The internet has been a game-changer for fascist propaganda. Shane explains the contradictory populist and elitist tendencies of fascist ideology, and how we can end fascism today by building mass movements of working and oppressed people.
Shane Burley is the author of “Fascism Today: What It Is And How to End It” (available at the Multnomah County Library & AK Press) and a contributor to the Institute for Anarchist Studies, most recently “25 Theses On Fascism”.
