11/29 Cinzia Arruzza: Berlusconi’s Italy & the Dangers of Anti-Trumpism

November 29, 2016

Hello Majority Report listeners. Today we have Cinzia Arruzza (@CinziaArruzza) on to discuss her piece in Jacobin, “The Dangers of Anti-Trumpism.” The aesthetic similarities between Trump and Berlusconi. How they both made a virtue of lack of experience. How Berlusconi benefitted from attacks on his character, reminiscent of Trump’s rise over the past year. How Italy’s center-left failed to stand up to Berlusconi while also being true-believers in neoliberal policy. How should the left react to something like Trump’s infrastructure plan?

On the fun half – Alex Jones goes off on Matt Taibbi, Trump wants to criminalize flag burning, Roger Stone says Trump may deign to prosecute Hillary now that she’s passively involved in Jill Stein’s recount efforts, and Trump spokespeople don’t know the evidence of landslide.
