"As the child of refugees of World War II Europe and a renowned philosopher and scholar of propaganda, Jason Stanley has a deep understanding of how democratic societies can be vulnerable to fascism: Nations don't have to be fascist to suffer from fascist politics. In fact, fascism's roots have been present in the United States for more than a century. Alarmed by the pervasive rise of fascist tactics both at home and around the globe, Stanley focuses here on the structures that unite them, laying out and analyzing the ten pillars of fascist politics--the language and beliefs that separate people into an 'us' and a 'them.' He knits together reflections on history, philosophy, sociology, and critical race theory with stories from contemporary Hungary, Poland, India, Myanmar, and the United States, among other nations. He makes clear the immense danger of underestimating the cumulative power of these tactics, which include exploiting a mythic version of a nation's past; propaganda that twists the language of democratic ideals against themselves; anti-intellectualism directed against universities and experts; law and order politics predicated on the assumption that members of minority groups are criminals; and fierce attacks on labor groups and welfare. These mechanisms all build on one another, creating and reinforcing divisions and shaping a society vulnerable to the appeals of authoritarian leadership. By uncovering disturbing patterns that are as prevalent today as ever, Stanley reveals that the stuff of politics--charged by rhetoric and myth--can quickly become policy and reality. Only by recognizing fascists politics, he argues, may we resist its most harmful effects and return to democratic ideals."--Dust jacket.… (mere)

Un ensayo que tal vez muy centrado en identificar a algunos políticos actuales con el fascismo, se queda corto, creo que las críticas son màs propias de todos los populismos. De hecho obvia toda referencia a los totalitarismos de izquierda que comenten las mismas tropelías con las mismas herramientas. peca tal vez por omisión ( )

A Warning Too Clear to Ignore

Setting aside Dr. Stanley’s far-left-of-me political history and the fact that he studied at MIT in the same department where Noam Chomsky teaches, this short work is a clear, concise, and a relatively non-polemic look at what fascism is and its current rise in the world: Poland, Brazil Norway, North Korea, Italy the US, etc. Many of us who came of age in the shadow WWII long believed that our parents and grandparents had defeated fascism once and for all in the 1940’s. Apparently, we were quite mistaken.
In just ten chapters Dr. Stanley explains how fascism takes hold. We stood in wonder and confusion when we looked at what the fascist did in the twentieth century. We asked how the good people of these countries could have committed these atrocities. He lays out the template used by the fascists to gain and then solidify power: focus on community decline, focus on loss of status – both personal and national, the rise of victimhood culture, relief sought from violent extremist organizations stressing some form of a more pure citizenship, nationalistic militancy, co-opting tradition power structures, creation of emergent scenarios requiring the suspension liberal democratic liberties and constitutional guarantees, and cleansing of scapegoat classes and non-aligned political groups, and of course gas-lighting with continual Big Lie.
The Polish journalist, Anne Applebaum, just published an interesting long-form piece in the October 2018 edition of “The Atlantic” corroborating many of Dr.’s Stanley’s claims concerning the current re-emergence of fascism in Europe. Reading Stanley’s book and Applebaum’s piece should give any lover of liberal democratic liberty pause.

How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them from Jason Stanley is essential reading for anyone not wanting to live under a fascist regime.

In the U.S. we are about to get out from under our little orange fascist wannabe, but that doesn't mean that he didn't cause major damage to our democracy and our standing in the world. This book will help us to understand what happened, what almost happened, and be alert to what will likely be attempted again by all those anti-democracy people who supported the moron.

In addition to speaking to our contemporary world, this book also presents a wonderful history of how and why these situations arise. It is an excellent read for those interested in polical science, history, social and intellectual history as well as current events.

Reviewed from a copy made available by the publisher via Goodreads First Reads. ( )

When I finished reading this book, I had to think deep thoughts for awhile before I could attempt a review. While I found the information informative and very interesting, I also was disappointed by the definitive left slant the author took in the presentation of his knowledge. I really wanted to read a unbiased, informational look at the history, effects and basics of fascism. I don't feel that's what this book presents.

Stanley discusses the basic components of fascism and how it gains control. The use of mythic tales of the past, dehumanizing portions of the population, propaganda, conspiracy theories and fake news to manipulate citizens, creating a state of control that creeps up quietly. I do agree whole heartedly that Americans and others around the world should be very concerned at the tendency of modern politics to descend into lies, manipulation and tricks. BUT, I disagree firmly when it is implied that this is a conservative tactic not used by the more liberal minded or intellectual side of the political arena. That is just simply not true. In America at the moment, I see both sides using all facets assigned to fascism to gain control of segments of the population in order to further their political agendas. The right uses Christianity and fear of failing morality, fear of immigrants, terrorism and other modern issues to fear monger their political views into voters minds. And, the left uses fear of patriarchy, the threat of Christian domination of the non-religious or other minded, and tales of Nazis, fascism and other past threats to further their own views. It's a shit show from both sides. And a very deeply divisive and destructive one.

The best way to overtake a nation is to divide, manipulate and conquer. Both extremes in the American political arena are attempting to do this. The end result is NOTHING is ever accomplished. No matter which side is the victor in any election, they spend all their time un-doing the work of past administrations, changing things to ensure their re-election or keeping the seats/positions their party currently controls and keeping the general population riled up. How is this in any way a healthy, productive or democratic situation?? Party politics has become a fascist tool. And both sides are pointing fingers at the other screaming terms like fascism, socialism, communism....so many isms. When in the end, both sides are completely guilty of fucking over the very people they are elected to represent and care about.

I enjoyed the basic information this book presented. But using it to further a left slant political agenda just poisoned the entire effect this book might have had for me. I expected a neutral presentation of facts.....and ended up disappointed at just another thinly veiled bout of Trump bashing. Is Trump a great president? No. Has he been effective? No. And, the entire political environment in the United States currently is frankly an embarrassment IMHO. An international shit show. BUT.....both political parties in the United States are to blame for weakening our political process for their own ends. I could rant about it....but this is a book review and I'm going to keep my comments on the book at hand.

Great basic information on fascism. I would have liked a longer book that included basic history on some of the fascist regimes that have existed in history, plus more details on why those regimes ultimately failed and what political environment replaced them. In the end, this book touched on basics and used them to support the author's political views. More of an editorialized spewing of knowledge than a non-fiction non-biased sharing of information about a dangerous political situation.
