I never thought that I would read that neoliberalism is giving way to neo-fascism in the US. The US used to stand for integrity, free speech and the moral high ground.
In this blog, we have long accepted that neoliberalism was deeply flawed but recognize it as the best system to protect the capitalist way of life – the alternatives are revolutionary. To understand post WWII neo-fascism, we must remember the evil fascist totalitarian regimes of Hitler and Mussolini.
