The Dangerous History Podcast - Ep. 0056: Fun with Fascism!

http://profcj.org/fun-fascism/

Ep. 0056: Fun with Fascism!

This is not a historical narrative of any particular fascist regime or regimes.  Instead, it’s an exploration of what fascism — arguably the most slippery of modern “isms” to define — really is.
Join Prof CJ as he discusses:
  •  Some quotes from the father of Fascism, Benito Mussolini, to get things started
  • Why fascism is tougher to nail down than other isms
  • What fascism is and isn’t, including some criticism of the standard “Left-to-Right” political spectrum
  • A look at some of the defining elements of fascism, using John T. Flynn’s As We Go Marching (1944) as a starting point
  • An excerpt from the Nazi Party’s platform dealing with their economic planks, and possible American parallels
  • A few words on fascism post-World War II

The Dangerous History Podcast - Ep. 0067: The New Counterculture?

http://profcj.org/the-new-counterculture/

Ep. 0067: The New Counterculture?

Is there a New Counterculture movement?  If so, what is it?  Can we define it, or at least describe it?  Might you be a part of it, even if in a small way, even if you don’t realize it?
Join Prof CJ as he discusses:
  • Why cultural, artistic, and/or intellectual movements are often hard to identify without hindsight (either after they’ve fizzled out entirely, or at least jumped the shark)
  • What the Old Counterculture was, and its problems
  • Defining what the New Counterculture is (as CJ sees it) by describing a nonexistent, archetypal New Counterculturalist individual in terms of his or her age, religiosity, career, political views, lifestyle, etc.
  • CJ’s take on the degree to which he himself (at least somewhat) fits the mold
  • Reasons why the New Counterculture has more potential to achieve lasting, positive change
