On the links between economic liberalism and fascism. Ishay Landa talks to us about the “Apprentice’s Sorcerer”: how political liberalism enfranchises the masses, to the disgruntlement of economic liberals, who then have to turn to an authoritarian or fascist ‘daddy’ to save capitalism. What does the liberal divorce between economic and political liberalism tell us about the conflict between democracy and private property? How does the fascist “principle achievement” relate to today’s fondness for entrepreneurial heroes? Also, a restatement of how the horseshoe theory is horeshit.
