"Did Political Correctness Cause Fascism in the US?" looks at "Kill All Normies" and "Capitalist Realism"
“Did Political Correctness Cause Fascism in the US?” by Zero Books, challenges a view that Angela Nagle’s “Kill All Normies” makes such a claim. It does get into the idea that modernity leaves a lot of young men behind as individuals, so some will try to look to authoritarian structures to give meaning and make everybody play.
The short film presents a clip from “West Side Story” and then presents the arguments from Mark Fisher’s “Capitalist Realism”. Finally, it talks about realism in turns of the two sides of a spinning coin as a whole, rather like the thimble in “Inception”.
