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.
