Capital has an Internationale and it is Going Fascist: Time for an International of the Global Popular Classes
Keywords:Global Capitalism, Neo-fascism, Transnational Capitalist Class
AbstractRobinson concurs with Amin’s centering of the problem of extreme concentration of capital and the centralization of power worldwide. However, he critiques Amin’s “tenacious nation-state/interstate framework,” arguing for an approach that transcends state-centrism to identify class and social dynamics that have enabled both the rise of the fascist right and create openings for emancipatory left formations.
