'Under the Axe of Fascism' by a marxist, Gaetano Salvemini, provides some wonderful vignettes of socially progressive Italian Fascist day-care centers, etc. The author appears to be outraged that the Fascists did their dirty deeds under the cover of 'progressivism'. It makes me smile! ;^)
The Hildebeast would have fit like a glove into the vanguard of Il Duce's state apparatus!

I saw an article here the other day about today's Italian government ordering crucifixes to be removed from public school classrooms. They were originally ordered placed there by Mussolini's fascist government.
I don't think fascism plots well on the liberal/conservative spectrum. But it does fit on a line that starts at liberty and ends at authoritarian.
