Clip of the Month: The Mindset of Fascism, with Rob Riemen

Feb 8, 2018

Rob Riemen's recent book "To Fight Against This Age" comes at exactly the right moment.

In this clip, Riemen, founder of the Nexus Institute, goes even further and says what many politicians, pundits, and academics are afraid to say: We are looking at a new class of fascist leaders, from Putin to Erdoğan to Trump.
