“The Rise of the Right: John Bellamy Foster Interviewed by Farooque Chowdhury,” Monthly Review vol. 71, no. 5 (October 2019), pp. 1-11. DOI: 10.14452/MR-071-05-2019-09_1 [HTML]
In an interview with Farooque Chowdhury, Monthly Review editor John Bellamy Foster speaks about the historical conditions associated with the rise of new far-right movements of a broadly neofascist character. What we are witnessing, especially in the advanced capitalist world, is the development of a neoliberal-neofascist alliance, reflecting the decline of the liberal-democratic state. Neofascism is the most dangerous and volatile phenomenon in this emerging right-wing historical bloc. All of this has to be seen in relation to the structural crisis of capitalism and growing ruling-class attempts to restructure the state-capital relationship so as to create regimes more exclusively for capital.
