by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-Los Angeles https://antiracist.org/fascism-is-built-from-above-and-below/ Those inclined to heave a sigh of relief and let down our guard about the threat of fascism because of Trump's failed Beer-Hall-Putsch of a coup attempt on January 6, or the "peaceful transition of power" on January 20, or by the eventual tracking and arrests of many of those who broke into the Capitol, or by the prospect that having been impeached a second time, Trump himself may be convicted and prevented from holding further public office, need to [...]
