Fascism, myth and the trans cult

An interview with a Yale philosopher.

This part of the exchange in particular is interesting and directly applicable to the techniques we see being used by the TRAs and the way they seek to destroy debate and fair democratic process:

Q Why is the destruction of truth, as a shared ideal, so critical to the fascist project?

A It’s important because truth is the heart of liberal democracy. The two ideals of liberal democracy are liberty and equality. If your belief system is shot through with lies, you’re not free … So freedom requires truth, and so to smash freedom you must smash truth.

Q [Arendt says] …fascists are never content to merely lie; they must transform their lie into a new reality, and they must persuade people to believe in the unreality they’ve created. And if you get people to do that, you can convince them to do anything.

A I think that’s right. Part of what fascist politics does is get people to disassociate from reality. You get them to sign on to this fantasy version of reality …

Of course the very important Yale philosophers and other such men will not join the dots regarding these sort of techniques when used against women. For them it only counts when it is men vs men, we disappear and are not heard. Even though we see the patterns and put our words down, we are ignored.
