A few weeks ago I had a conversation about the rise of transnational populist authoritarianism with Eastern Standard for their Dear Leader: America’s Flirtation with Authoritarianism series. It’s available now (and has been on various NPR outlets over the past few days. Nothing, I think, that anyone here would be terribly surprised by.

Along the same lines, I wanted to draw folks attention to Rick Perlstein’s recent thread on Corey Robin’s Reactionary Mind:

My own view is that the idea that the current authoritarian moment on the right bears no resemblance to “fascism” is a pleasant fantasy that enables the self-identified Left to reject any notion of a crisis that requires solidarity with mainstream liberalism; if it walks like a Nazi and talks like a Nazi then it might as well be treated like a Nazi.
