Of course, and those who have not read widely about Mussolini's History in the original do not know
the full extent of the Socialism he had to try to disguise as populism.
Thank you _Om Sig
Thank u, MASSAGATO.
He was a socialist newspaperman, long before Hitler in Germany.
I may add to that, the fact the nazis were National SOCIALISTs
Hitler grew up in abject poverty; such is the resource of socialism.
His S.A. militia, were drawn from the ranks of impoverished, unemployed
or underemployed German workers, who desired socialism.
The Hitler-Stalin Pact was a natural thing for them both to do.
Thay were both authoritarian-collectivists.
Someone on Abuzz had a collection of anti-Individualist rhetoric,
long quotes, with which Hitler inveighed against free enterprize
and freedom of the Individual, a postition with which my German Nazi uncle agreed,
debating against me with it. He scorned free enterprize.
I argued for laissez faire
He described himself as a "socialist"; he kept a flag with a swastika on it.
