The Origins of Totalitarianism – Hannah Arendt

This is one of the books that should be read by everyone. 

It is an indictment against political systems using populism and exploiting prejudices. It is dissection of corrupting power and contagious hate, spreading through the society.

And it should be read by everyone so we could identify the mechanisms, see the symptoms – dividing, hateful speech, us versus others language. Notice, before it is too late, that people we put in power are now trying to take the freedom from us. 

Origins of Totalitarianism are one these diagnostic books – one you have in mind while speaking about learning from history. So let’s learn.
