Moving Beyond Fear : Upending the Security Tales in Capitalism, Fascism, and Democracy Paperback / softback

Part of the Universalizing Resistance series


While security stories often point to real threats, the narratives of leaders are as much about legitimating the power of rulers and the political and economic system that brought them to power.

Derber and Magrass offer a penetrating examination of this phenomenon across history and types of societies.

Their analysis reveals the great irony about security stories: they historically increase insecurity, imperiling citizens and nation.

In the US today, the contradiction is especially acute, as security stories told by Trump divide US citizens against one another. The book builds from an analysis of the extreme dangers of the prevailing security stories to a new paradigm of true security.

The authors develop new approaches as our best hope for avoiding catastrophe and creating a socially just society based on real security for a nation and for humans across the planet.
