So the Right Wing is Afraid of Everything
By Alexander Reid Ross (December 1, 2017)
So the right wing is afraid… constantly… about everything.
Take that away, and they feel way more open.
This is not a revelation so much as another explanation as to why the marketing of a “security state” in tandem with the hyping of “terrorism” has always been a vicious scheme. At the same time, it is why “terrorism” as a political strategy is ultimately reactionary regardless of ideological persuasion—the desire to shock and to instill fear in the public, a la ISIS, always serves the reactionary motive of dividing people and re-enforcing isolating tendencies.
Erich Fromm was correct—where fascist causes us to fear our own freedom, we must respond in solidarity by promoting love and mutual aid.
