After the past three years of a political climate in turmoil, next year we hope to correct the course. While there are many suggestions as to what that course is, the consensus always excludes what to do about the far right that dominates today’s climate. How do we change that, how have we fought them in the past and how do we fight them in the future and most importantly, who are we fighting? This will be a discussion about what we have seen and what to expect as we go forward.
