Speech by Mussolini

"... Fascist Italy ... is anti-democratic, anti-liberal, anti-socialist, and anti-Masonic. ... What I must reproach democracy for is this: that it creates one type of man and really believes that this man exists. This historically leads to atrocious disillusion, tragedies and butcheries. ... We have created the corporative state." 


Benito Mussolini, "Speech of the Ascension," May 26, 1927.
