Fascism is not relative

28 08 2018

In email traffic regarding our post commenting on the lackadaisical discussion of academic freedom in Thailand, a reader mentioned ‘Silence Is Health’: How Totalitarianism Arrives by Uki Goñi. It is an account of how the “ordinariness” of Fascism and its associated repressive practices is normalized and internalized by societies and classes.

Author Uki Goñi is a Buenos Aires-based journalist and author who has written for several newspapers, and this rather long article is well worth reading, not least for its comments on universities.

The path to Fascism is strewn with lackadaisical acceptance of the steps taken on its journey to political dominance.
