Paul Mason is in conversation with Ian Dunt. Paul’s book offers a radical, hopeful blueprint for resisting and defeating the new far right; a horror that is a recurring nightmare happening now from Modi’s India to Bolsonaro’s Brazil and Erdogan’s Turkey. It is both a chilling portrait of contemporary fascism, and a compelling history of the fascist phenomenon: its psychological roots, political theories and genocidal logic. Ian’s book tells the forgotten story of the advance of liberalism from the English Civil War, and the American and French Revolutions to the clashes between John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek, and the writing of George Orwell. He traces how the financial crash, identity politics and post-truth have wreaked havoc on liberal values. From the ashes of Covid-19, we have an opportunity to create a fairer, more equal society. To do so, we must ask ourselves: what kind of world do we want to live in? And what are we going to do about it?

Paul Mason is an award-winning writer, broadcaster and film-maker. Previously economics editor of Channel 4 News, his other books include PostCapitalism, Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere: the New Global Revolutions, Live Working or Die Fighting and a novel Rare Earth.
