021 - Jason Stanley - Philosopher, Author - How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them
Fascism. It’s a term that gets thrown around a lot. But what, really, does it mean? Jason Stanley, Philosopher and Yale Professor explains it. Because if you don’t know what it is, how can you fight it? That’s why this fascinating episode is a must listen.
Today’s episode is a conversation in partnership with Warwick’s Books. Jeniffer talks with Jason Stanley about his latest book, How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them. Stanley is a Professor of Philosophy at Yale University and contributor to publications such as NYT and Boston Review. He also serves on the board of the Prison Policy Initiative. He explains how Fascism is insidious in that it’s not just a regime. It’s many things. It’s policy. It’s language and rhetoric. And it’s dangerous to not know it when we see it. Jason breaks down a myriad of examples, that you’ll probably recognize, to support his points.
