Bertoldt Brecht ends his 1941 play about fascism “The resistible Rise of Arturo Ui” with words that nearly 80 years later, with current the rise of fascism and authoritarianism in the world give us pause: Is we could learn to look instead of gawking We’d see the horror in the heart of farce. If we could act instead of talking, We wouldn’t always wind up on our arse. This was the thing that nearly had us mastered; Don’t yet rejoice in his defeat, you men! Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard, The bitch that bore him is in heat again.”
