Wednesday, August 23, 2017

In June, Senator Bernie Sanders issued a warning that the U..S. is creeping towards authoritarianism under the Trump administration, but does President Trump posess the hallmarks of an Autocrat? Today we'll explore the shape of modern authoritarian rule and consider whether or not President Trump is really consolidating power around himself, or if elevated media coverage is just making it appear that way.

Today's Guests:

Ruth Ben-Ghiat is a professor of history and Italian studies at New York University who writes about authoritarianism and propaganda

Samuel Moyn - is a professor of law and history at Yale University

Corey Robin - is a professor of political science at Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center. He is the author of The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Sarah Palin
