I Can't Even Think Of A Title


I have written and deleted this post six times already. I started it last night and held it in draft. My words and thoughts are so very negative as they have been in the previous posts. In my previous post I mentioned Fascism. I pondered if the left of politics can be called fascists or is it just all-inclusive of the right.

Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.-George Bernard Shaw

On the other hand-

It is a matter of controversy whether President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal was directly influenced by fascist economic policies. Mussolini praised the New Deal as “boldly . . . interventionist in the field of economics,” and Roosevelt complimented Mussolini for his “honest purpose of restoring Italy” and acknowledged that he kept “in fairly close touch with that admirable Italian gentleman.” Also, Hugh Johnson, head of the National Recovery Administration, was known to carry a copy of Raffaello Viglione’s pro-Mussolini book, The Corporate State, with him, presented a copy to Labor Secretary Frances Perkins, and, on retirement, paid tribute to the Italian dictator.
