Ruth Ben-Ghiat is a professor of history and Italian studies at New York University and an expert on fascism and authoritarianism. Her opinion essays and other writing have been featured by CNN, the Washington Post, The New Yorker and the Atlantic.

Ruth Ben-Ghiat's most recent book is Strongmen: From Mussolini to the Present.

Ruth Ben-Ghiat reflects on how authoritarianism and America’s escalating democracy crisis are an attack on the American people's individual and collective emotions, intellect, bodies, and overall well-being.

She also explains why so many Americans – as well as elites in the news media and larger political class – are, more than five years later, still in a state of denial about the Trump Republican fascist movement and its existential threat to American society.

Chauncey DeVega continues to warn America’s so-called pro-democracy forces that they are letting themselves be overwhelmed by the fascist onslaught and rising tide. How? By not understanding the true nature of the enemy.

And Chauncey reviews several new films, C'mon C'mon, Encanto, Wolf, and Paul Verhoeven’s Benedetta.
