‘The liberal mainstream’s rhetoric and politics has produced and reinforced nationalism that the far-right then pushes in more extreme and damaging forms.’
This week, Grace is joined by Barnaby Raine, co-author of a recent essay for Salvage magazine analysing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine through the lens of rising nationalism, a feature of global politics especially since the 2008 financial crisis.
They discuss this world-historic crisis of capitalism, how it is fueling the growth of nationalist and neo-fascist movements around the world, what that means for world politics, and how the left should respond.
