Fascism, Vulnerability, and the Escape from Freedom: Readings to Repair Democracy
A worldwide struggle between democracy and authoritarianism set against a backdrop of global surveillance capitalism is unmistakable. Fascism, Vulnerability, and the Escape from Freedom offers a multidisciplinary analysis of this struggle, drawing on psychology and literature. Erich Fromm’s neglected 1941 classic Escape from Freedom serves as a key reference in Delogu’s study, as does Robert Paxton’s authoritative history, The Anatomy of Fascism (2004). After underscoring the argument and urgent context around these two studies (Hitler’s Germany and George W. Bush’s post-9/11 America), Delogu examines novels, a diary, memoirs, and manifestos to show how vulnerability forces individuals to choose between exclusionary fascist authoritarianism and inclusive, collaborative democracy. C. Jon Delogu is professeur des universités at the Université Jean Moulin-Lyon 3 where he teaches American history, comparative literature, and translation.
