In Politics
by Paul Cudenec I have written extensively in recent years about the way in which accusations of “fascism” are used to smear radical opponents of a system that is, itself, a mutation of fascism. The issue is addressed in Fascism Rebranded, in various contributions to The Acorn (see here, here and here) and in my political novels No Such Place as Asha (2019) and Enemies of the Modern World (2021). One of the key figures in this ideological smear campaign, particularly in North America, has been Alexander Reid Ross. As reported in Acorn 64, he is now working for a militaristic US “think tank” alongside many former “deep state” figures, including a former CIA chief. Furthermore, the “think tank” in question is funded by Charles Koch, the 11th richest man in the world, renowned alongside his late brother for his opposition to the green movement. As Rhyd Wildermuth asks in this excellent article: “Does it seem maybe a little weird that the man who helped create an atmosphere where far-left environmentalists are smeared as fascists is now working for an organization funded by one of the richest anti-environmentalists ever known?” Read more of Cudenec's article here. Editor's Note What can we learn about smear campaigns? What can we learn about those that 'smear' and 'counter-smear'? What methodologies can we utilize to 'defuse' the power of smear campaigns? Iceberg? What do you think? Source Source
