For The Record

Thrive on This! Counter-Culture Fascism in Cinema

Lis­ten (MP3): Side 1   Side 2  

This pro­gram fea­tures the work of Eric John­son, who has writ­ten an impor­tant, per­haps defin­i­tive, piece on the counter-culture fas­cist pro­pa­ganda film Thrive. The advance of fas­cism fea­tures a bur­geon­ing array of media and orga­ni­za­tional phe­nom­ena that direct peo­ple of more “progressive”–even “hip” ori­en­ta­tion in the direc­tion of big­otry and right-wing total­i­tar­i­an­ism. Heav­ily over­lap­ping the “Truther” milieu, this film fea­tures the work of John Birch Soci­ety vet­eran G. Edward Grif­fin, Nazi apol­o­gist Eustance Mullins, as well as the ide­ol­ogy of Aus­trian School of eco­nom­ics lynch­pin Lud­wig von Mises. The latter’s phi­los­o­phy is the foun­da­tion of the ide­ol­ogy of the Edward Snow­den and Wik­iLeaks milieu, in addi­tion to pro-slavery advo­cates such as the League of the South. The film also weaves the “rep­til­lian shape shifter” views of David Icke. All of the ide­olo­gies and the view­points of some gen­uine pro­gres­sives are baked into an over­all anti-Semitic confection.
