Hitler and Mussolini
It is striking to note the strange similarity between the path of nationalism of cousins between the wars, the brothers of totalitarianism, pioneers in the art of handling the crowds that were Hitler and Mussolini.
Both began their careers at the extreme left of the political spectrum :
- German Workers Party (DAP) for Hitler
- and Socialist Party for Mussolini (with an anarchist tendency)
to complete their quest for the absolute deadly in the extreme right, through the same tortuous paths, using the weakness of parliamentary democracies in place.
