Benito Mussonlini and Fascism 

" Fascism was, in fact, a Marxist coinage. Marxists borrowed the name of Mussolini's Italian party, the Fascisti, and applied it to Hitler's Nazis, adroitly papering over the fact that the Nazis, like Marxism's standard-bearers, the Soviet Communists, were revolutionary socialists. In fact, "Nazi" was (most annoyingly) shorthand for the National Socialist German Workers' Party. European Marxists successfully put over the idea that Nazism was the brutal, decadent last gasp of "capitalism." " - Tom Wolfe

musso "If the bourgeoisie think they will find lightning conductors in us they are the more deceived; we must start work at once .... We want to accustom the working class to real and effectual leadership" - Benito Mussolini

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power." - Benito Mussolini

"Fascism has taken up an attitude of complete opposition to the doctrines of Liberalism, both in the political field and in the field of economics". - Benito Mussolini

"All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state." - Benito Mussolini

"Socialism is a fraud, a comedy, a phantom, a blackmail." - Benito Mussolini

"The socialists ask what is our program? Our program is to smash the skulls of the socialists." - Benito Mussolini

"Given that the nineteenth century was the century of Socialism, of Liberalism, and of Democracy, it does not necessarily follow that the twentieth century must also be a century of Socialism, Liberalism and Democracy: political doctrines pass, but humanity remains, and it may rather be expected that this will be a century of authority ... a century of Fascism. For if the nineteenth century was a century of individualism it may be expected that this will be the century of collectivism and hence the century of the State." - Benito Mussolini

"The Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with the State. It is opposed to classical liberalism [which] denied the State in the name of the individual; Fascism reasserts the rights of the State as expressing the real essence of the individual." - Benito Mussolini, The Doctrine of Fascism (1932)

"The maxim that society exists only for the well-being and freedom of the individuals composing it does not seem to be in conformity with nature's plans. If classical liberalism spells individualism, Fascism spells government." - Benito Mussolini, The Doctrine of Fascism (1932)
