A Looming Fourth Reich? On Counterfactuals, The Man in the High Castle, and Right-Wing Populism

Here are some more reflections – this time in Vice -- on the relationship between the current cultural wave of counterfactualism and the rise of right-wing populism.

Here’s the introductory teaser:

“The Amazon Prime show The Man in the High Castle [moves] onto a second season of exploring that ever-present – and increasingly pertinent – question of what may have happened if Hitler had won the war. We asked counterfactual 20th century historian Professor Gavriel Rosenfeld, about whether he thinks Nigel Farage, Donald Trump and Marine le Pen really are ushering in some kind of Fourth Reich, or if we are all just overreacting a bit.”
