In The Moment … January 12th, 2021 Show 971 Hour 1 On January 8, Governor Kristi Noem was published in The Federalist. She condemned the violence in the U.S. Capitol the day before. She said the Republican Party had failed Americans and that needed to change. She called the incoming Democratic Senators from Georgia "communists." She said "few American children have been taught the history of our decades-long fight to defeat communism." Today we're going to check in on a few basic definitions as we move ahead to the legislative session. How do we define communism, socialism, fascism, authoritarianism? Joining us for the conversation we welcome Nicholas Drummond, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of History and Political Science at BHSU.
