How Fascism Works, and How to Stop It: An Online Dialogue between Jason Stanley and Andy Zee



Virtual program on Facebook and YouTube,

co-hosted by Revolution Books NYC/Berkeley and the
Brooklyn Book Festival

The “F” word-fascism. Can it happen here? Is it happening here? What to do?

Yale philosopher Jason Stanley, author of How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them, and Andy Zee, Revolution Books spokesperson and co-initiator of, will probe this most urgent question of our times. And you will have a chance to engage with them.

Only by understanding and fully confronting the danger we face can we act to stop it, before it’s too late.

  • Donald Trump announced on September 23 that he wouldn’t commit to a “peaceful transfer of power” if he loses.
  • The Trump/Pence regime spews blatant white supremacy and male supremacy, and xenophobic hatred towards immigrants.
  • This regime gives racist “law-and-order” cover and support to police that murder Black men and women like George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
  • It moves to crush protest and dissent through paramilitary federal troops and armed white thugs.

These are the facts.

Jason Stanley and Andy Zee will explore the lessons of history and the appropriate forms of action... to stop fascism.

Jason Stanley is a Yale philosopher and author of How Fascism Works.

Andy Zee is co-initiator of and spokesperson for Revolution Books.
