FTR-71 Martin A. Lee Live

Lis­ten now: Side 1 | Side 2

Lee’s land­mark book about the re-emer­gence of fas­cism (The Beast Reawak­ens; hard­cov­er edi­tion Lit­tle Brown; copy­right 1997) is the focal point of this broad­cast. Much of the ear­ly part of the dis­cus­sion cen­ters on fas­cism and the for­mer Sovi­et Union. In addi­tion to a detailed dis­cus­sion of the tra­di­tion­al Ger­man strat­a­gem of align­ing with Rus­sia in order to achieve glob­al dom­i­na­tion, the pro­gram dis­cuss­es fas­cist move­ments and per­son­al­i­ties in var­i­ous parts of the for­mer Sovi­et Union.

The pro­gram also sets forth some of the new forms that fas­cist move­ments in var­i­ous coun­tries have adopt­ed, in order to appear to be “pop­ulist” and even “demo­c­ra­t­ic.” Euro­pean neo-fas­cists, such as Jean Thiri­art, Alain de Benoist and expo­nents of the “third posi­tion,” struc­ture their polit­i­cal agen­da to appeal to peo­ple from the “pro­gres­sive” polit­i­cal sec­tor.

Oth­er top­ics of dis­cus­sion include: Nazi and fas­cist con­nec­tions and oper­a­tions in the Mid­dle East; the Con­ser­v­a­tive Rev­o­lu­tion in Weimar Ger­many and its influ­ence on the rise of Hitler; H. Kei­th Thomp­son (an agent of the SD, the SS intel­li­gence ser­vice, and the ODESSA dur­ing and after World War II); the rise of the Lib­er­ty Lob­by and its con­nec­tions with peo­ple like Nazi ide­o­logue Fran­cis Park­er Yock­ey; con­nec­tions between the “Old Guard” of the Hitler peri­od and con­tem­po­rary Nazis.

  1. Great Episode sad­ly more rel­e­vant then ever with a mas­sive expan­sion of thrid and fourth way fas­cism since the 90’s thanks to the intrenet. And of course the ever increas­ing scape­goat­ing of immi­grants in Europe and US.
