Madeleine Albright, 'Fascism: A Warning'4
Madeleine Albright discusses her book, "Fascism: A Warning", at a Politics and Prose event at Sixth and I in Washington, DC on 4/16/18.

Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree Madeleine Albright is the first woman ever to serve as U.S. Secretary of State. Over her long career as a diplomat, Albright watched Fascism rise and endure. In Fascism: A Warning, she shows us how its legacy shapes today's world. Albright believes that the momentum toward democracy that swept the world when the Berlin Wall fell has gone into reverse. Extremists on the right and left are taking power all over the globe, and we must join forces to resist in order to avoid repeating the horrors of the past. In this call to arms, Albright gives us the lessons we should take from the past, the questions we need to ask in the present, and the tools we can use to fight for our future.

Albright is in conversation with Jeffrey Goldberg, editor in chief of The Atlantic and a recipient of the National Magazine Award for Reporting

I can think of no single nation that has accumulated power that has not been corrupted by that power.
Still, there are people in that same country who are not seduced or corrupted.
They hold onto the ideals and the humane visions and principles that are so easily shed by those who become addicted to power and money.

I don’t know all there is to know about Ms. Albright.
She might be hypocritical.

But even if she is....don’t dismiss any truth or wisdom that might be contained in her message.

Politics and Prose obviously has very well-read, intelligent audiences at their authors' talks, but ... please, GET to the question so more attendees can have a chance to ask their questions. Please stop monopolizing the mic and consider that we're more interested in hearing as many questions as possible, than your backstories, compliments, or personal anecdotes. Thank you.

Fascism..a warning .A must read for all our present and aspiring politicians

Datacracy is pale compared to fascism. China has already started to hack the minds of millions of individuals, by giving a “social credit” figure to few millions of people in their country. Very dangerous for people who love freedom.in all aspects of the term.

If only our collective hearts, minds and love of country were as is reflected in Ms Albrights' soil we can be a better place that works for us all. The 1% rules politics and government attitudes. 99% need to do everything wee can to remind the minority that we are the majority! Vote, be involved in any way you can, stand up for our old ideals with a modern twist. It's not them vs us, it's all of us, with an identity in our respective countries. What you did affects others, all others not just your small circle!

Sadly her tenure as S of S and a leader of the so-called center left of the US single party (Corporate) Democracy has not enlightened her to the fact that she played a major roll in domestic & geopolitics that put out the "red carpet" for a Trump-like POTUS, or she has seen her utter failure as a diplomat and party leader and has chosen self preservation. Madeleine Albright like H.R. Clinton is unwilling to admit ushering in the WTO, NAFTA, Prison Industrial Complex, full tilt Neo-liberal economics in which profit and economic benefits defy the law of gravity and float to the top 1-10% in government, finance, energy and industry (heavy on the military) and of course her own chubby little hands. She is a shining example of everything wrong, criminal, corrupt and self serving in world governments moving into the new century. Her depth of obvious hypocrisy and effort to camouflage her own culpability in the War Crimes and (Lies) LACK of Diplomacy during her tenure is a selfish attempt to fill in the countless graves 1.5 million + of murdered innocents around the globe before she herself is found out to be a fundamental source of ideological evil ...!!!...

What makes or breaks a democracy is the simple process of voting and the guarantee that each vote cast counts as a vote to elect whoever gets the most votes.

*Teleprompter-reader Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: "We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?"; Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price--we think the price is worth it." — **_60 Minutes_** (5/12/96)*

I studied that topic due to my somewhat similar history and I’m coming to the same conclusion. Democracy is hard work and it needs to be defended. Sadly enough, since soviet times (google Yuri Bezmenov) counterintelligence from the KGB has undermined western societies. After the end of socialism, those oligarchs became plain fascists. They are dividing our society by badmouthing our intel agencies and free press in order to take over control of information. That’s all you need to let people willingly handing over to a dictator.

You know you're living in an Orwellian society when someone who justified the mass murder of 500, 000+ children is lecturing on morality.

She has blood on her hands ... She said killing 500, 000 Iraqi children was worth it.
