Fascist Balls

Ed Balls: minister fears rise of fascism amid economic gloom - Telegraph

"I think that this is a financial crisis more extreme and more serious than that of the 1930s and we all remember how the politics of that era were shaped by the economy."

Having to sit next to Jacqui Smith I'm not surprised at his views - but first a history lesson....


In power, the party attempted to form an economic policy that was a "third way" between capitalism and socialism, ...launched several public construction programs and government initiatives throughout Italy to combat economic setbacks or unemployment levels...pushed for government control of business:
foremost priority was the subjugation of the minds of the people and the use of propaganda to do so; whether at home or abroad, and here his training as a journalist was invaluable. Press, radio, education, films—all were carefully supervised to create the illusion that fascism was the doctrine of the twentieth century,...All teachers in schools and universities had to swear an oath to defend the fascist regime. Newspaper editors were all personally chosen by Mussolini and no one who did not possess a certificate of approval from the fascist party could practice journalism. These certificates were issued in secret;...ways to ideologize, with an accent on schools. ....

Yup, pretty spot on.

Ministers fear the 'rise of Fascism'? Was Ed Balls looking in the mirror when he said that?
