http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/coffeehouse/2013/04/di-canio-is-right-italian-fascism-was-not-racist/ And after reading that read this: http://www.spectator.co.uk/features/8854261/italys-new-duce/ A rather interesting article about Mussolini and the Italian fascist movement. It reminds people that Mussolini started out in life as a radical left wing politician and only moved to his fascist ideas after World War 1 in 1919. Racism and fascism have long been held to be inseparable but history tells a different story. Also as pointed out in the article National Socialism and Fascism have become interchangeable terms even though they have quite different outlooks on the idea of race. Fascism is essentially portrayed as emerging from left wing politics. Both Mussolini and the new Italian Fascist were both heavily involved with radical left parties before they became Fascists. Something that many Communists and Socialists would rather forget (or just ignore). So, thoughts?
