Article by Vicente Navarro, published in Counterpunch, on the 12th of December, 2022.


This article explains the causes of the growth of Fascism and Nazism, from the 1930s, during The Great Depression, until the present day. It also includes the growth of Neo-Fascism and Neo-Nazism movements that occurred during The Great Recession and afterward due to the application of neoliberal policies by the governments on both sides of the North Atlantic, including in countries with very different (quasi-opposite) political traditions, such as Sweden (with a historically strong labor movement) and the U.S. (with a historically weak labor movement). The article also focuses on the consequences of this growth, representing a serious threat to democratic institutions and to the well-being and quality of life of the majority of their populations.

Professor Navarro suggests the reading of this article, published in the International Journal of Health Services, Volume 49.2, pp. 197-203, 2019. It analyzes critically the most recent scientific bibliography on the causes of the growth of mortality and morbidity in the white working class of the United States. The methodology used in these studies, and also the insufficient conceptualization of the variables used (such as social class), limits the understanding of the increment of the “diseases of despair” in that sector of the population. This article emphasizes the need to analyze the evolution of the social classes in the United States, and the political determinants that have changed not only the character and composition of that class, but also the power differentials between this class and other classes in the United States.
