Cultural critic Henry Giroux surveys the ascent of the neofascist style in American politics — from Trump’s position amidst the ruin of democratic institutions and social order, to the elevation of White supremacy and unchecked corporatism – and calls for the left to resist authoritarianism and reclaim solidarity and democracy’s radical potential.
Henry is author of the essay “Militant Hope in the Age of the Politics of the Disconnect” for Counterpunch and War Culture, Militarism and Racist Violence Under Trump for Truthout.
The stakes have never been higher (and our need for your support has never been greater).
For over two decades, Truthout’s journalists have worked tirelessly to give our readers the news they need to understand and take action in an increasingly complex world. At a time when we should be reaching even more people, big tech has suppressed independent news in their algorithms and drastically reduced our traffic. Less traffic this year has meant a sharp decline in donations.
The fact that you’re reading this message gives us hope for Truthout’s future and the future of democracy. As we cover the news of today and look to the near and distant future we need your help to keep our journalists writing.
Please do what you can today to help us keep working for the coming months and beyond.
