About the topic: To Fight Against This Age: On Fascism and Humanism
Riemen will discuss the growing alarm over the erosion of democratic ideals and the romanticization of authoritarianism in Western societies. He warns that if we ignore this new global resurgence of this century’s fascism, we do so at at our own peril.
Reimen regards this threat as the spiritual crisis of our time, The topic is as timely as it is timeless, and critically important for those who want to understand the world in which they live, confront and ultimately defeat the political threats to western humanism with its universal values of truth, justice, respect for our fellow man — values that are the origin and basis of a democratic civilization.
The publication has been met with praise from both pundits and literary critics:
“We are sleepwalking into catastrophe; Riemen wants to wake us up and he does with passion, wisdom, and eloquence.”
– Simon Schama
“An extremely relevant, urgent call to revive true democracy and acknowledge the perils of fascist ideology.”
– Kirkus Reviews
