“Il Duce ha sempre ragione” [Mussolini is always right] – Scary, Eh?

Watching a documentary about what went on between World War I and World War II, I learned that a basic slogan successfully employed by Mussolini aka Il Duce to build popular support for Fascism in Italy was “Il Duce ha sempre ragione” [Mussolini is always right]. Somehow, this seems especially ominous these days.

  1. It’s scarier now than it was on the day you posted this.

    To my knowledge, Trump hasn’t said “Trump is always right”–at least, not yet–but, even so, there are many adherents of his cult of personality who believe it–due in large part to the Trump Propaganda Network (Fox News).

  2. I have been a student of History my entire life. No politician has ever worried me, you agree, you disagree, that’s democracy. Trump is different. He is a very sick man with no ability to see past his Ego. No developed sense of empathy. I don’t mean this critically, I mean this clinically. That’s the danger, it’s clinical. If he thinks it, he believes it. If he wins a second term, he will do everything in his power to change the constitution to allow him a 2nd or 3rd or 4th term. Putin did it and recently China. Those are his mentors. Hitler had Mussolini got rid of all the checks and balances.

    If you look at the way he has designed his personal residence, there is more gold leaf on the walls than you will find in Buckingham Palace. He has a coat of arms, on his plane seats for example. There is no such thing as a coat of arms for Americans. Arms are granted by the College of Arms in the UK. The man creates a fantasy life around himself and lives in it long before he became POTUS. He is a very troubled man. If he were not the POTUS, he would be entertainment fodder. In this case he literally a danger to World Peace and peace in the US.
