Thanks are due to Greg Hood for an outstanding, comprehensive review of my book on antifascism. Mr. Hood wrote an admirably thorough review, which I could not improve on even if I tried. I agree with his implied criticism that I do not fully explain the bizarre relationship between wokeness and corporate capitalism. That troubling connection continues to puzzle me, and Iâ€™m not quite sure which is the stronger force in driving it: the fear among the corporate class of irritating BLM, the LGBT lobby, and other woke activists, or the sympathy felt by this class for what I call the â€œpost-Marxist leftist ideology.â€ Given the firm hold this ideology exercises on the urban and affluent, it seems that both motives may be at work here.
The most compelling aspect for me of Gregâ€™s review is his recognition of the radical nature of my critique of the antifascist scam. I do not view those who scream â€œfascismâ€ whenever some public figure resists the latest form of thought control to be simply pests or nervous nellies.
