The storming of the Capitol on this day a year ago is more than a symptom of an underlying disorder, as suggested by a writer for the NYT. More accurately, it represents a new stage and readiness to overthrow the existing democratic order by violent means. It’s a continuation of politics for sure, but – and here’s the point – by other means. It tells us that an existing white nationalist, patriarchal, plutocratic movement has metatasized into something more menacing and dangerous – into a movement, fascistic if you like, that embraces in its actions as well as its words, armed struggle as a legitimate means to acheive its political objectives.
