A James Gregor's "Mussolini's Intellectuals"
Camillo Pellizzi, Carlo Costamagna, and the Final Issues
Anyway, last time: Panunzio was good with technicalities, but not quite good enough to reconcile Gentile's non-transcendental idealism (read: pantheism) with the Catholic Church.

Guess what? It worked.
Or not, I suppose, because he seems a relatively conservative figure so far.
Well, it failed like every Rousseauian project ever. If they'd won, it'd be "not real fascism."
Oh well, it's probably in one of the other books he wrote in the last 50+ years of writing about fascism.
They were wrong, like always.
(The exception is Ugo Spirito, who you may remember from Chapter 6. He gets to test out his alternative in the Italian Social Republic, which we'll discuss later.)
Second, @neoabsolutism was right; "democracy" really is a nonsense word.
Also: weird reading about nations having a SURPLUS population problem in the current year.
As much fun as it is to laugh at the ridiculous overconfidence of the intellectuals, do try to remember that Mussolini had very practical reasons for doing what he did. It was a do or die situation.
Because that had a very poor track record, so "get rich or die trying" was the plan, and we all know what happened then.
(A grim side note on the last paragraph: Italian Nationalism started as Anglo-LARPing, and I guess that never really went away)
t. whigger nationalists.
They noticed that Nazi racism was crypto-egalitarian. Try explaining THAT to normies.
I miss those days.
