COVID: A Case Study with Life & Death Stakes: Science, Epistemology, Conspiracy & Fascism

December 11, 2020 by Refuse Fascism

Watch this panel discussion presented by Refuse Fascism and the Revolution Nothing Less show, originally streamed Wednesday, December 16.

The Situation

Waiting in line to receive COVID testing
Nearly 300,000 people in this country have died from COVID under a science-hating, genocidally racist, lunatic fascist regime, with the virus now out of control and thousands more projected to die before Trump leaves office. The Trump/Pence regime, the Republi-fascists, and their rabid base spread COVID as a matter of “liberty” – the liberty to infect and kill others.  Trump recovers from COVID with the best healthcare in the world and then tells his overwhelmingly white followers at a campaign rally in Minnesota that they have “good genes.” The regime’s COVID response concentrates many of the features of this fascist program – white supremacy, xenophobia, Christian fascism, and unhinged conspiracy theories.

Some Questions

How did we get to a point, and why have we tolerated, a regime that has facilitated the deaths of 300,000 people, disproportionately Black and brown people? Is this deliberate mass murder or “collateral damage” in service of a fascist or fundamentalist worldview? How do we wage a society-wide struggle for truth, science, and evidence-based epistemology?

Don’t miss an important forum to dig into this and more.
