Triumph of Trump:
Continuity and Change in US Politics

WTF happened? The script was clear: with backing from the old-guard political leadership of both major parties, most corporate CEOs, Citizens United PACs, the mainstream media, celebrities, and high-ranking national security and military leaders, Hillary Clinton was headed towards what looked to be a historic landslide victory.  Yet the Democratic Party is in shambles, and Donald Trump is headed to the White House in January.
Roger Harris with the Peace and Freedom Party will discuss the threat of fascism with the election of Trump. Is fascism a personality disorder or are there deeper political antecedents? Are they now present with a Trump presidency? How does a left narrative differ from a liberal one on the current potential for fascism and the threat posed by Trump?
Economist Allan Miller will discuss the election in the context of the ongoing capitalist economic crisis and neoliberalism. To what extent will the Clinton-Bush-Obama (and Hillary’s “big tent”) neoliberal trajectory continue under Donald Trump, and to what extent are we witnessing a watershed moment in American history? With a major world-wide recession, if not depression, looming, how will it play out after the weak, jobless “recovery” of the last recession?
