Description

In an article published in August 2021, Professor Adolph Reed warned that: “It’s time to be blunt. The right-wing political alliance anchored by the Republican party and Trumpism coheres around a single concrete objective—taking absolute power in the U.S. as soon and as definitively as possible. And they’re more than ready, even seemingly want, to destroy the social fabric of the country to do so.” In the article, entitled “The Whole Country is the Reichstag”, Reed drew parallels between the constellation of political forces in present-day America and those that shaped the affairs of Germany in the early 1930s. Are such comparisons legitimate? If so, what are the political implications of such an interpretation of our present-day situation? And what are the chances that the left can halt this authoritarian slide?
