America At War With Itself: The Sandstorm This is an excerpt from Henry Giroux's book, America At War With Itself, from the introduction. In its earlier forms, the language of authoritarianism relied upon the discourse of command and courted mass hysteria, one that produced totalizing world views, punished dissent, disseminated hate-filled propaganda steeped in the vocabulary of ultra-nationalism and racial purity, and emptied language of any substance

The Plague of American Authoritarianism In the United States an emerging totalitarianism has appeared in a form different from what we have seen in the past. Instead of a charismatic leader, the government is now governed through the anonymous and largely remote hands of corporate power and finance capital. The more money influences politics, the more corrupt the political culture becomes.

Assassination Talk, the Banality of Evil, and the Paranoid State of American Politics Trump's rhetoric, along with the discourse of other extremists, echoes Hannah Arendt's insight that totalitarianism is produced, in part, by making human beings superfluous, ignoring their voices, and silencing them in fascistic discourses of certainty, absolutes, and unaccountability that allow no space for critical thinking, informed judgment, and critical agency.

Like Gandhi, he warned people over and over again not to remain silent in the face of racism, militarism and extreme materialism, and argued that "he who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
