Right now, we are living in a global period of democratic decline and the rise of authoritarianism. From Moscow to Manila, from Brasilia to Budapest, from Warsaw to Washington, D.C., authoritarian leaders, parties, and movements are on the rise.
Fueled by misogynist patriarchy, White nationalism, and neoliberal capitalism, it would be a mistake to think that the U.S. is immune to broader global trends. So, how do we get from here, perhaps the brink of authoritarianism, to the just, inclusive, multi-racial democracy that we seek?
Don’t miss this discussion and Q&A session about reining in racial nationalism and theocracy, along with their authoritarian cousins: neoliberalism, surveillance and monopoly capitalism, and oligarchy.
