On non-fascist life with Natasha Lennard, Politics, Theory, Other, Tribune Magazine
Podcast interview by Alex Doherty

Natasha Lennard joins me to discuss her book, Being Numerous: Essays on Non-Fascist Life. We spoke about whether or not Donald Trump and the movement that has coalesced around him ought to be characterised as fascist, we also talked about the contributions of Wilhelm Reich, Michel Foucault, and other figures in the anti-psychiatry movement to theorising fascism. We discussed the legitimacy and history of anti-fascist violence and its treatment by the media, and finally we spoke about Natasha’s writing on suicide and how the act of suicide brings into question capitalism’s positing of the idea of the sovereign individual.
