So you think that democracy is here to stay?

So you think that democracy is here to stay? Well… then think again, as anything is possible. Everyone should watch this, especially everyone in America.

In 1939, 20,000 Americans rallied in New York’s Madison Square Garden to celebrate the rise of Nazism – an event largely forgotten from American history. A NIGHT AT THE GARDEN, made entirely from archival footage filmed that night, transports audiences to this chilling gathering and shines a light on the power of demagoguery and anti-Semitism in the United States.

A NIGHT AT THE GARDEN was directed and edited by Marshall Curry and was supported and released by Field of Vision. The film was nominated for a 2019 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short; it was also an official selection at the Sundance Film Festival and was part of a special screening and panel discussion at the New York Film Festival. It was released on 22 Alamo Theater screens across the country and at The IFC Center in NYC.

Weaponization of National Belonging, from Nazi Germany to Trump

Considering that so many Americans tend to be on the lower end of the educational spectrum, and are indeed very much swayed by religious cult-like frameworks, such as the one currently led by Trump, this is hardly a surprise. When the USA is led by a materially and morally corrupt con artist, that makes it also very dangerous for the whole world.
