"The Psychology of Fascism" - talk with William Manson

Join us at Internationalist Books for a thought-provoking talk with William Manson about "The Psychology of Fascism."

What drives leaders such as George Bush and John McCain towards their destructive militarism and repressive global and domestic policies? In this provocative talk and discussion, Manson will analyze the authoritarian narcissism underlying US corporate and political power through the lens of psychology. Deriving insight from diverse thinkers including Sigmund Freud, Wilhelm Reich, Erich Fromm, and others, participants will examine the role of sexual repression, authoritarian conditioning, and pathological narcissism in shaping the psychology of America's leaders as the country edges towards fascism. Come prepared to learn, debate, and explore humanistic alternatives to the "wargasmic" policies of Republican (and Democratic) narcissists!

William Manson is a Chapel Hill-based radical intellectual historian and author who has published essays examining fascist psychology, authoritarian narcissism, and radical humanism in Fifth Estate magazine, Anarchy! A Journal of Desire Armed, and more.
