About this ebook

Trump is out of the White House, but American democracy is on the ropes and teetering on the brink of competitive authoritarianism controlled by theocrats and oligarchs. With its cherished institutions hobbled, political norms trampled, guardrails severely damaged, and body politic divided by chasms of race and geography, can the U.S. survive another administration dedicated to establishing de facto single party rule? In this compelling, comprehensive analysis, Brynn Tannehill draws on her expertise in studying the collapse of weak democracies around the globe and her previous research in law, political science, economics and right-wing populism to explain the trajectory of how we got here and the current threats we face. Most importantly, she analyzes what the characteristics of fascism are, if they are applicable to the base of the GOP today, and what that means for us should they succeed in establishing permanent minoritarian rule. American Fascism is a surgical analysis of 250 years of struggle for democracy in America and a prescient prognosis of what’s to come if we do not heed Tannehill’s warnings and advice.

You're right our Democratic elected president is out of the white house and now we have the authoritarian government of Biden. Who needs unity and bipartisanship when you have a one vote majority. Let's just keep throwing more money at unions and figuratively and sadly in reality at nothing. In ww2 unions helped Hitler rise to power. He also enacted early childhood learning and some other policy's which make you wonder where Biden is really getting his plans from.
