More on: Anti-Democratic Threats

The podcast episodes examine the potential threats that the Trump movement and Trumpism pose to American democracy, including the January 6th insurrection, Trump's legal troubles, and the broader debate over whether Trumpism can be considered fascist.

The episodes highlight concerns about the Republican Party's acquiescence to Trump's actions, the role of white supremacy and racial scapegoating, and the implications for a potential Trump-Biden rematch in the 2024 presidential election.

Analyzing these threats to democracy is a central focus of the discussions, which draw on the topics of populism, narcissism, and the historical comparisons to fascism.
