These are a bunch of quotes from the worlds famous Fascists on what they thought about Socialism, Guns, or Social Justice -- just to remind people that they were left-wing activists, thought of themselves as Socialists, and had the same policies and ideologies as the progressive left does today.

Benito Mussolini

Benito Mussolini was the chief editor for Avanti, the powerful Socialist paper for Italy before coming to power:

❝ "The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative." ❞
❝ “Democracy is a kingless regime infested by many kings who are sometimes more exclusive, tyrannical and destructive than one, even if he be a tyrant.” ❞
❝ “It is the State which educates its citizens in civic virtue, gives them a consciousness of their mission and welds them into unity.” ❞
❝ [fascism is a] "merger of state and corporate power", over the people was implied. ❞
❝ "We have buried the putrid corpse of liberty” ❞

Adolf Hitler

❝ "We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." ❞
❝ “National Socialism is the determination to create a new man. There will no longer exist any individual arbitrary will, nor realms in which the individual belongs to himself. The time of happiness as a private matter is over” ❞
❝ [My task is to] “convert the German volk (people) to socialism" ❞
❝ “I have learned a great deal from Marxism … as I do not hesitate to admit” ❞
❝ “What Marxism, Leninism and Stalinism failed to accomplish we shall be in a position to achieve.” ❞
❝ "We must “find and travel the road from individualism to socialism without revolution” ❞


While not a quote, "Forward" has long been a term used by unions and socialist/left leaning orgs (and now by the President) as their slogan. Again, this is the opposite of conservatism, which they play as "Backward" (towards tradition). ❞
❝ "Unity in faith is theocracy; unity in politics is fascism." ❞
❝ "Fascism was a counter-revolution against a revolution that never took place.” ❞


Fascism (Nationalism+Socialism) is overloaded (and means different things to different people/groups), with a brutal history, so no one wants to be associated with it and both sides play, "I know you are, but what am I?". But fascism is more than an ad hominem attack: we can clarify conflicting meanings, and look at real history and motives, for those who value the truth more than their own agenda. more...
