One could say nearly the same thing about Mussolini's leadership of Italy. There is certainly nothing in his political career that would suggest his opinions on such things are of much importance or interest. He was one of the prominent political fools of a century that was replete with them. The best one could say about him is that he was slightly less murderous than the others.

@georgeob1,
One could say the same thing about Mussolini's leadership, true. As for everything else you are wrong. He was a political genius and his political analysis and understanding of the state and its purpose in this new system which he created (and was copied with malice in Germany) is proof, in the books that he wrote and participated in. Considering the numerous un resolved problems in our time his theories may be practiced again under a new guise out of sheer necessity. The "murderous" Character you are correct about also, especially when you look at US policy from the Phillipines during the spanish / american war to Iraq, and what the Anglo part played in places from India to Ireland under the flag of Democracy. Only an ignorant post war journalist would use the word "fool", ....... and of course his readers and followers.

@OmSigDAVID,
My father was an "authoritarian" too, like most responsible patriarchs. Although fathers make mistakes, authority is a necessity in society and again looking at todays crisis, by proper authoritarians.

@eurocelticyankee,
Yes, She was pardoned by Mussolini, deported back to England and placed in an insane assylum, because she was clinically insane poor thing.

Authoritarians shud be overthrown in disgrace,
then stripped, tarred & feathered and left to walk home.
