Let's Shut Down the Authoritarian Machine Trump's ominous tweet about how his supporters might "demand" that he stay in office for more than two terms is the latest proof that his authoritarian ideology has little regard for the law. The tweet also reflects Trump's strong desire to use threats of violence, if necessary, to reshape the political landscape and mode of governance.

The Ghost of Fascism in the Post-Truth Era We do not live in a post-truth world and never have. On the contrary, we live in a pre-truth world where the truth has yet to arrive. As one of the primary currencies of politics, lies have a long history in the United States.

Donald Trump's Fascist Politics and the Language of Disappearance Trump's love affair with some of the world's most heinous dictators and his hatred of democracy echoes a period in history when the unimaginable became possible, when genocide was the endpoint of dehumanizing others, and the mix of nativist and nationalist rhetoric ended in the horrors of the death camp.The menacing abyss of fascism is now at our doorstep.

Neoliberalism in the Age of Pedagogical Terrorism Any dissatisfaction with injustice necessitates combining the demands of moral witnessing with the pedagogical power of persuasion and the call to address the tasks of emancipation. We need individuals and social movements willing to disturb the normalization of a fascist politics, oppose racist, sexist, and neoliberal orthodoxy.

Reading Against Fascism Something sinister and horrifying is happening to liberal democracies all over the globe. The global architecture of democracy is giving way to authoritarian tyrannies. As alarming as the signs may be, we cannot look away and allow the terrors of the unforeseen to be given free rein. We cannot allow the power of dreams to turn into nightmares.

Trump's Relentless Lies Demand We Make Truth-Telling Great Again There is more at stake here than the threat of censorship, there is also an attack on traditional sources of information and the public spheres that produce them. Trump's government has become a powerful disimagination and distraction machine in which the distinction between fact and fiction, reality and fantasy are erased.

Striking Teachers Beat Back Neoliberalism's War on Public Schools If American society is to offset the deeply anti-democratic populist revolt that has put a fascist government in power in the United States, progressives and others need a new language that connects the crisis of schooling to the crisis of democracy. Public schooling is under siege along with the values and social relations that give viable meaning to the common good, economic justice and democracy itself.

Unfashionable Fascism: Mainstream Politicians Switching Sides Under Trump's Regime of Barbarism Unchecked power, a take-no-prisoners politics, and unapologetic cruelty are the currency of fascism, the wedge that makes fear visceral and violence more than an abstraction. This lethal combination is also a condition endemic to brutal demagogues such as Trump. They demand loyalty not to an ideal that expands the meaning of justice and democracy but loyalty to themselves, one that stands above the truth and rule of law.

Education as a Weapon of Struggle: Rethinking the Parkland Uprising in the Age of Mass Violence Under the influence of corporate power and a growing authoritarianism in the United States, education in multiple informal and formal platforms operates increasingly in the service of lies, racism, unadulterated market values, and a full-fledged assault on critical consciousness and public values. Under such circumstances, democracy is cast as the enemy of freedom.

The Parkland Shooting Was About More Than Gun Violence The deeply troubling call for eliminating gun-free zones and arming teachers comes at a time when many schools have already been militarized by the presence of police and the increasing criminalization of student behaviors. Suggesting that teachers be armed and turned into potential instruments of violence extends and normalizes the prison as a model for schools and the increasing expansion of the school-to-prison pipeline.
