The growth of global far right political movements poses a threat to humanity. To defeat these movements, we need to understand their origins and their relationship to capitalist structures of power. Should political leaders like Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro be labeled “far right” or “fascist?” In this post, I will defend the use of “neo-fascist” to define both Trump and Bolsonaro, as well as movements closely linked to them, such as the Brexit movement in Britain.
