Creating people's geographies
Here’s Charlie Chaplin (h/t Agent 99), a classic clip from his satire and first talkie, The Great Dictator, which I’ve only just viewed. It calls for a defiance of fascism.
See also Naomi Wolf’s latest work which considers the fascist blueprint as applied to current times in The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot. Here is an article drawing upon this work, comparing historical patterns of fascism with today.
Just added: Check out Mark’s new video over at The Peace Tree.
Meanwhile, just a note that I am enjoying catching up with the excellent posts at blogs as well as reading the appreciated comments here while I am inundated with grading papers. Look forward to returning to the blog deck shortly, and to releasing at least a few of the dozens of sketched out posts in the drafts folder!
