Slate: Introducing Fascism

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/fascism/2017/01/introducing_a_new_slate_academy_on_the_history_of_fascism.html

A preview of Slate’s newest Slate Plus Academy, which you have to pay for. The preview episode, however, talks about the slipperiness of fascism as a concept and its origins in Italian Fascism. Ruth Ben-Ghiat, who is interviewed at the end of this episode, is careful to state that she does not think Trump is a fascist, but notes that he uses stratagems and rhetoric typical of fascist authoritarians.
