Overview

“Blackshirts & Reds” explores some of the big issues of our time: fascism, capitalism, communism, revolution, democracy, and ecology – terms often bandied about but seldom explored in the original and exciting way that has become Michael Parenti’s trademark. Parenti shows how “rational fascism” renders service to capitalism, how corporate power undermines democracy, and how revolutions are a mass empowerment against the forces of exploitative privilege. He also maps out the external and internal forces that destroyed communism, and the disastrous impact of the “free-market” victory on Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. He affirms the relevance of taboo ideologies like Marxism, demonstrating the importance of class analysis in understanding political realities and dealing with the ongoing collision between ecology and global corporatism.
