In this one-hour special, Rick travels back a century to learn how fascism rose and then fell in Europe — taking millions of people with it. We’ll trace fascism’s history from its roots in the turbulent aftermath of World War I, when masses of angry people rose up, to the rise of charismatic leaders who manipulated that anger, the totalitarian societies they built, and the brutal measures they used to enforce their ideology. We’ll see the horrific consequences: genocide and total war. And we’ll be inspired by the stories of those who resisted. Along the way, we’ll visit poignant sights throughout Europe relating to fascism, and talk with Europeans whose families lived through those times. Our goal: to learn from the hard lessons of 20th-century Europe, and to recognize that ideology in the 21st century.

My name is Glennford Roberts, and I am a metaphysician and an idealist. My metaphysics renders my state of Being conscious to the UNIVERSAL and the absolute truth, beauty, and goodness of ONE. Knowledge of the UNIVERSAL provides the opportunity to write on universals such as change, dignity, equality, and Love for Others. I do not apologize for my idealism for the simple reason there are so few of us. I am not overly interested in the debate of particulars. I am well aware we are never going to achieve the ideal of paradise on earth. My purpose is to teach the UNIVERSAL and transcendental truth of ONE. If interested, please take the time and effort to review and study the posts on the Metaphysics of Politics I hope that you find your metaphysics and the truth, beauty, and goodness in Others. Peace, Love and Happiness View all posts by Glennford Roberts
