A nation of spaghetti eaters cannot restore Roman civilization!
The best blood will at some time get into a fool or a mosquito.
If two irreconcilable elements are struggling with each other, the solution lies in force. There has never been any other solution in history, and there never will be.
Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice it is a fallacy.
Democracy is talking itself to death. The people do not know what they want; they do not know what is the best for them. There is too much foolishness, too much lost motion. I have stopped the talk and the nonsense. I am a man of action. Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice it is a fallacy. You in America will see that some day.
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.
The struggle between the two worlds [Fascism and Democracy] can permit no compromises. It's either Us or Them!
Democratic regimes may be defined as those in which, every now and then, the people are given the illusion of being sovereign, while the true sovereignty in actual fact resides in other forces which are sometimes irresponsible and secret.
It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.
It is the State which educates its citizens in civic virtue, gives them a consciousness of their mission and welds them into unity.
The definition of fascism is The marriage of corporation and state
The history of saints is mainly the history of insane people." -Benito Mussolini (Chuck Palahniuk - Pygmy)
The state reserves the right to be the sole interpreter of the needs of society.
If only we can give them faith that mountains can be moved, they will accept the illusion that mountains are moveable, and thus an illusion may become reality.
Italian journalism is free because it serves one cause and one purpose... mine!
I have been a racist since 1921. I don't know how they can think I'm imitating Hitler,
If I advance; follow me. If I retreat; kill me. If I die; avenge me! It is better to live one day as a lion than one-hundred years as a sheep!
Fascism is a religious concept.
Fascism is not an article for export.
Inactivity is death.
The fate of nations is intimately bound up with their powers of reproduction. All nations and all empires first felt decadence gnawing at them when their birth rate fell off.
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.
War is to man what maternity is to a woman. From a philosophical and doctrinal viewpoint, I do not believe in perpetual peace.
We have buried the putrid corpse of liberty
Every anarchist is a baffled dictator.
We become strongest, I feel, when we have no friends upon whom to lean, or to look for moral gudance
People are tired of liberty. They have had a surfeit of it. Liberty is no longer a chaste and austere virgin.... Today's youth are moved by other slogans...Order, Hierarchy, Discipline.
I should be pleased, I suppose, that Hitler has carried out a revolution on our lines. But they are Germans. So they will end by ruining our idea.
There is no revolution that can change the nature of man
We deny your internationalism, because it is a luxury which only the upper classes can afford.
Better to live a day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep
We do not argue with those who disagree with us, we destroy them.
The mass, whether it be a crowd or an army, is vile.
The Liberal State is a mask behind which there is no face; it is a scaffolding behind which there is no building.
Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of humanity, quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace.
War alone brings up to their highest tension all human energies and imposes the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have the courage to make it.
Fascism is a religion. The twentieth century will be known in history as the century of Fascism.
We become strong, I feel, when we have no friends upon whom to lean, or to look to for moral guidance.
All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.
The corporate State considers that private enterprise in the sphere of production is the most effective and useful instrument in the interest of the nation. In view of the fact that private organisation of production is a function of national concern, the organiser of the enterprise is responsible to the State for the direction given to production.
There is the great, silent, continuous struggle: the struggle between the State and the Individual; between the State which demands and the individual who attempts to evade such demands. Because the individual, left to himself, unless he be a saint or hero, always refuses to pay taxes, obey laws, or go to war.
The Fascist accepts life and loves it, knowing nothing of and despising suicide; he rather conceives of life as duty and struggle and conquest, life which should be high and full, lived for oneself, but not above all for others those who are at hand and those who are far distant, contemporaries, and those who will come after.
State intervention in economic production arises only when private initiative is lacking or insufficient, or when the political interests of the State are involved. This intervention may take the form of control, assistance or direct management.
Let us have a dagger between our teeth,a bomb in our hand,and an infinite scorn in our hearts.
Journalism is not a profession, but a mission.
Three cheers for the war. Three cheers for Italy's war and three cheers for war in general. Peace is hence absurd or rather a pause in war.
What the proletariat needs is a bath of blood.
Blood alone literally moves the wheels of history.
There is a violence that liberates, and a violence that enslaves; there is a violence that is moral and a violence that is immoral.
Race? It is a feeling, not a reality. Ninety-five per cent, at least. Nothing will ever make me believe that biologically pure races can be shown to exist today.... National pride has no need of the delirium of race.
Yes, a dictator can be loved. Provided that the masses fear him at the same time. The crowd love strong men. The crowd is like a woman.
Silence is the only answer you should give to the fools. Where ignorance speaks, intelligence should not give advices.
The press of Italy is free, freer than the press of any other country, so long as it supports the regime.
The function of a citizen and a soldier are inseparable.
The League is very well when sparrows shout, but no good at all when eagles fall out.
It's good to trust others but, not to do so is much better.
It is humiliating to remain with our hands folded while others write history. It matters little who wins. To make a people great it is necessary to send them to battle even if you have to kick them in the pants. That is what I shall do.
I've had my fill of Hitler. These conferences called by the ringing of a bell are not to my liking. The bell is rung when people call their servants. And besides, what kind of conferences are these? For five hours I am forced to listen to a monologue which is quite fruitless and boring
Fascism entirely agrees with Mr. Maynard Keynes, despite the latter's prominent position as a Liberal. In fact, Mr. Keynes' excellent little book, The End of Laissez-Faire (l926) might, so far as it goes, serve as a useful introduction to fascist economics. There is scarcely anything to object to in it and there is much to applaud.
The truth is that men are tired of liberty.
Fascist education is moral, physical, social, and military: it aims to create a complete and harmoniously developed human, a fascist one according to our views.
Socialism is a fraud, a comedy, a phantom, a blackmail.
Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power
I want to make my own life a masterpiece.
Peace is absurd: Fascism does not believe in it.
Religion is man-made to assist in controlling the weak minded individuals because during times of atrocity and despair they feel strength in numbers.
The Socialists ask what is our program? Our program is to smash the heads of the Socialists.
Nessun fenomeno al mondo può impedire al sole di risorgere.
Fascism should rightly be called corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power.
This is the epitaph I want on my tomb: Here lies one of the most intelligent animals who ever appeared on the face of the earth.
Believe, obey, fight.
