In this short video, David Renton, author of The New Authoritarians: Convergence on the Right (2019) puts forward a bold thesis arguing that fascism is not the main enemy today – rather we face a new and dangerous alliance of the right.

He outlines three key ways in which right-wing politics is shifting across the globe:

  • A growing internationalism
  • A convergence between the far-right and the mainstream right
  • A partial disavowal of fascism

Acknowledging and responding to these patterns, Renton argues, must be at the heart of the Left’s resistance strategy.
