This Akirakato guy does not give a personal opinion or comment, but only a recital of the contents. OK, now let's see my comment. Well, I don't know if it's a joke or not, but I read in the media recently that "Mussolini was materially and in other ways supported by the British to become leader." I also read not so long ago that "Hitler was a British agent." The funny thing is that I actually believe these media "jokes" are true. We are being told the truth in some way about many things, only the dumb public who don't think and don't put 2 and 2 together, don't believe it. Those who direct world events in subtle ways enjoy telling the public (after the fact) how they duped them. The 2nd World War was prepared in advance by the Versailles Treaty, to cripple Germany economically, thus preparing the terrain for Hitler. The Entente did this (the French and the English). Then, after years of starving Germany came Hitler, and as Ted Flynn writes in "Hope of the Wicked" (2001), Western bankers formed the Bank Of International Settlements and secretly financed Hitler's "Economic Miracle" to turn him into a hero, a national leader. This is how world events are "manipulated." I conclude that we have to beware of "heroes," because they usually work for the other side. The role of WW1 was to create the League of Nations; the role of WW2 was to create the United Nations, which will become World Government. People fall for heroes' propaganda and fight each other, and the end result is what some "wicked" in the background planned. I actually saw the newspaper article with more details about Mussolini being a creation of the British; he was helped to power with money and thru the socialist movement, similarly the way Hitler was helped. And imagine that at the same time - it is well documented - Communism also was created by the help of the British and Wall Street bankers who taught and financed Lenin to take over Russia and divide Europe, and they manipulated the fake conflict. Averil Hariman, one of the bankers who financed Lenin, later, in the time of Stalin, was sent to Russia as Ambassador of the USA. He financed Russian Communist industrial investments, but at home he was howling about the growing "Red Danger." Cooper in his "Behold a Pale Horse" book wrote the Cold War was a sham, a fake conflict, a comedy, and we swallowed it. Same is now with North Korea - China keeps them alive with daily shipments of food (200 trucks per day). They are kept alive to serve as a last Communist "scarecrow" to keep us on the edge. This is how the "human herd" is managed.

This is a documentary about Benito Mussolini, originally produced in 1995 as a segment of the A&E television program "Biography."
With pounding fists and brutal charisma, the enigmatic journalist Benito Mussolini seized power through a potent combination of terror and persuation.
Promising glory while crushing his enemies, he held Italy in his grasp for more than two decades.
The film shows his days as a class bully to the creation of the dreaded Black Shirt Brigades, and then his alliance with Hitler, and finally to his execution and mutilation by Italian partisans.
