Is fascism having a resurgence?

Essayist and cultural philosopher Rob Riemen joined "Salon Talks" to discuss a subject that has many Americans scared — the possibility that President Donald Trump is a fascist. Riemen's conclusions are not reassuring (he argues that Trump is quite fascistic), but they offer the comfort of understanding. In the video above, Riemen demystifies fascism so that audiences can stop viewing it as something ethereal and instead can see it as the collection of prejudices and outdated assumptions that it truly is.
