Trotsky on Fascism

Socialism 2016

July 01, 2016

The rise of a militant right in response to the economic crisis and its corresponding xenophobia has pushed the specter of fascism into political discourse. This talk looks at fascism in Germany in the 1930s and why it succeeded there. We will look at the conditions that give rise to fascism, where it gets its support, and then using Trotsky's analysis and methods provide a method for defeating it.
