Antifascism, as a politic and concept, has grown more appealing in the last 6 years because of the rise of right-wing authoritarianism domestically and globally rooted in patriarchy and ongoing (settler) colonialism. Nonetheless, there remains much confusion about fascism. Earlier this month, I was a featured panelist for a roundtable discussion with the editors of For Antifascist Futures: Against the Violence of Imperial Crisis and author of On Microfascism: Gender War and Death at the Red Emma’s bookstore in Baltimore.

The Farce of “Justice” in a Liberal Democracy
udiciary since it continues to apportion the vocation of a judge something akin to the priesthood- i.e a belief that judges epitomise fairness, righteousness, and justice. That is not so, judgeship is not just and if we continue with the reasoning that they are demigods, the tyranny of the judiciary will continue in perpetuity. . . .
