This nice interview with Martin Lee by anti-fascist researcher and radio personality Dave Emory is a great follow up to A Fireside Chat. In that program, Dave Emory takes the time to explain the concept of the Underground Reich and its implications for today and for our lives. In this chat, FTR #81, Martin Lee takes the opportunity to present his masterpiece work The Beast Reawakens. That book remains a milestone in the understanding of current events in terms of a return of fascism since the end of WWII but especially since the reunification of Germany. More precisely, it tries to underline the signs that are visible out there that the « beast » is effectively in a process of reawakening. We can see it in many different things and Martin Lee brings us to realize the scope of its implications. Among the many subjects Lee passes on, we find the rise of anti-semitism in the German Army, the use of psychological warfare on populations, the National Alliance, the role played by the Wehrmacht, the operations « Stay Behind », the pro-fascist junta in Greece, the militia, Elohim City, the Oklahoma City Bombing, etc.
At one point, Dave Emory brings the concept of « perceived discontinuity » in trying to explain the incapacity of a lot of people to understand things that are taking place and to read them correctly. In effect, if things look discontinuous, one might be tempted to conclude that there are no relationship between what is happening today and what happened in the past, several decades ago. That’s a very good point and I would add that it is probably an engineered one, for the very reason that it is necessary for the gradual and insidious implementation of fascism.
