About the Folio

Evil systems bring out evil in people of all nationalities. We have learned over and over in history the dangers of essentializing. Many Russians are as horrified by what is happening in Ukraine as we are. We will read all these books together in my free Fighting Tyranny Book Club on Fable, learning why we must defeat Putin, but also combat the authoritarian mindset in our own country.

The Origins Of Totalitarianism

The Origins Of Totalitarianism

By Hannah Arendt
“Never has our future been more unpredictable, never have we depended so much on political forces that cannot be trusted to follow the rules of common sense and self-interest.” Arendt wrote that in 1951, but it applies to everything we are seeing in Ukraine. However, we also have a lot of systems that are profoundly unjust in the United States. This book reminds us that we have also created a society that we need to fix.
