In this episode of Capitalism Hits Home, Dr. Fraad looks at the recent dramatic US Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. She argues that all of the SCOTUS decisions for 2022 share a common purpose. First, they help to create a capitalist authoritarian state enforced by unaccountable police. Secondly they divide the mass of people. They antagonize divisions between people and fuel culture wars. The goal is to create hierarchical and hostile divisions that keep Americans from uniting as an employee class and winning.

    It is also important to note that fascism was invented by a sociopath, Mussolini, and that most fascist nations have been led by one. Hitler was suspected of being one. Pinochet of Chile, a fascist leaning authoritarian was a sociopath. So was the fascist, Slobodan Milosevic of Serbia. It is no accident that Trump is a sociopath and fascist leaning. Fascism serves the sociopaths’ sense of grandiose omnipotence and acts as the perfect platform for their charismatic leader/follower cult.
