Strategy of Tension: A policy wherein violent struggle is encouraged rather than suppressed. The purpose is to create a general feeling of insecurity in the population and make people seek security in a strong government. Today’s guest, Eric Galati, pulls brilliantly from Italian neo-fascism and contemporary American politics to demonstrate what some have called the “politics of non-reconcilation.” Demonization. Villainizing. Dehumanizing with bombs and burglaries scattered in for effect. Galati shows why that might be the future of the United States—and why conservatives, particularly, need to understand how this roadmap works.
