‘Ultimately, the interests of the right and the far-right are very strongly aligned with the interests of capital.’
This week, Grace talks to Sam Moore, co-author with Alex Roberts of The Rise of Ecofascism: Climate Change and the Far Right. Sam and Alex host their own podcast, 12 Rules for WHAT, which focuses on the rise of the far right.
They discuss how far-right politicians are weaponising the climate crisis to build support for an extremist, exclusionary politics based on “batteries, bombs, and borders,” how this links to a longer history of right-wing environmentalism, and how the left should respond.
