If you learn your 20th century history you will know that Mussolini was Europe’s archetypal fascist leader, the man Adolph Hitler modeled himself on. Nazi Germany was just a better industrialized version of Fascist Italy.

Of course fascism starts with the erosion of basic personal liberties, and greater power for corporations to fuel the war machine. The end is usually large scale death and suffering. Queensland appears to be making the first steps down this perilous path.

  1. Socialist actually, not Fascism..
