What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 6 in a series – “…a horde of barbarians…”

September 23rd, 2019

“Contemplating Mussolini, ex-schoolteacher, bohemian minor novelist, and erstwhile socialist orator and editor, and Hitler, former corporal and failed art student, along with their shirted ruffians, in charge of European Great Powers, many educated and sensitive people supposed simply that “a horde of barbarians . . . have pitched their tents within the nation.”“

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
