So you've spotted ecofascism in the climate community, now what? w/ Angelica Kross

Wellness and sustainability and environmentalism, oh my. These communities have long histories of overlap with fascism, serving as breeding grounds for fascist demagogues, and fascist groups invariably have roots in traditionalism, populism, and purity - uncomfortable.
