G. M. Tamás, once known as a left-libertarian dissident and later as a liberal member of the Hungarian parliament, has become one of post-Communist Europe’s most important Marxist intellectuals. In his writing on the history of the socialist movement, the character of Communist-led states, and the nature of the “transition” from state capitalism to free-market capitalism, he highlights the deep historical and structural roots of the current morass in which Central Europe, and much of the rest of the world, finds itself. In this interview he explains and further develops his diagnosis of the present, setting out from his well-known notion of "post-fascism." In this interview conducted by Lukáš Matoška, Tamás discusses the state of "post-fascism" today.
