Description

Since the rise of Trump in 2016 debate has increased in liberal and left political spaces pertaining to the rise of a fascist moment in America. With the election of Joe Biden in 2020, some believed the Trump threat had abated. Then on January 6, 2021, the Trump insurrection at the US Capitol building took place, alarming many Americans. With Biden's agenda not generating enthusiastic support as his poll numbers drop, the reactionary right is on the march again as recent electoral victories have served as an unfavorable referendum on Biden.


Considering these current political realities, what direction should those on the left take? Should there be a popular front union with the Democratic party to challenge the reactionary right? Or is there a more radical and effective strategy?
