Today we have Cinzia Arruzza (@CinziaArruzza) on to discuss her piece in Jacobin, "The Dangers of Anti-Trumpism." The aesthetic similarities between Trump and Berlusconi. How they both made a virtue of lack of experience. How Berlusconi benefitted from attacks on his character, reminiscent of Trump's rise over the past year. How Italy's center-left failed to stand up to Berlusconi while also being true-believers in neoliberal policy. How should the left react to something like Trump's infrastructure plan?
