Our guest is Jason Stanley, Yale Professor and expert in authoritarianism, fascism, mass incarceration, freedom of speech, and other issues. Fascism is on the march around the world and even in the US. Hungary was the latest domino to fall. And Trump's former aide was in on it. This is an unbelievable story. But it's one you need to know and one that will explain a lot of things we're seeing in US America. Jason's latest book is "How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them." --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

When Volodymyr Zelensky was elected Ukraine's President (on a reform platform) it undercut a plan by the Trump and Russia mobs to gain control of the Ukraine state gas company, Naftogaz. Trump's Ukraine meddling is part of this larger effort and—beyond rigging his reelection— it aims to depose Ukraine reformers in the new Ukraine government, the US government, and Naftogaz. The goal: to control Ukraine's state natural gas company and bleed it, like Putin did in the past.
