Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of

state and corporate power____ Benito Mussolini, Il Duce (The Leader)

A great orator and energetic campaigner, Benito Mussolini became the youngest

Prime Minister in Italian history. Mussolini ruled constitutionally from1922 into1925.

Then, using envy, greed, lies, and his version of pen and executive power, Benito

Mussolini merged state and corporate power into one. Creating a dictatorship known

as Il Ducethe leader

After consolidating political power, Il Ducesnow single-party governmentfinished

consolidating control and/or ownership of Italys production and distribution of goods

and services. Due to his making Italys trains run on time and other questionable

triumphs of state, Mussolinis Corporatism became the darling of Americas

Progressives during the late1920s into the 1930s

In 1939, Mussolini entered into the Pact of Steel with Hitlers Nazi State. This lead to

Mussolini taking Italy into World War Two on the side of Hitler. That decision did

not work out well for Il Duce. In1945, with total defeat of Axis Powers near, Italian

partisans captured and executed Il Duce, hanging his and his mistress Claretta

Petaccis worse for wear bodies upside down at a service station for public viewing.

There ends the tale of Benito Mussolini, Il Duce (The Leader). But not the end of


Life must be lived forward, but can only be understood backwards. ____ Soren


The 20th Century saw the birth of Americas own style of Corporatisman unholy

trinity of big labor, big business, and bigger government. A trinity of special interests

seeking to exterminate competitive capitalism, the market-oriented system that made

America prosperous, powerful, and exceptional.

Not willing to compete fairly in the marketplace, leaders of Americas organized labor

provide funds and foot soldiers to help elect candidates who promise special

backroom deals.

Instead of competitive capitalisms risk-reward economics, billionaires, large

corporations, and numerous big financial institutions seeking wealth without risk,

accept and support government control. Economic freedom is exchanged for taxpayer

bailouts, corporate welfare, and marketplace advantage.

Americas Il Duce is neither a single he nor she dictatorshipyet. It is a Washington,

D.C. oligarchy. A system of lobbyists, congressional staffs, and elected officials of

both parties centered on self perpetuation and wealth grabbing. This immoral system

of special interest elitists feeds on and feeds off a Benito Mussolini type

Corporatismall at the expense of Americas declining middle class.

One tragic result of 21st Centurys rise of Corporatism in America, Obamacare,

another proven case of big governments complete incompetence. Using envy, greed,

and lies, the Corporate State now seeks dictatorial control over production and

distribution of Americas healthcare.

It is irrefutable, the more federal government gets into housing, education, and health

care, the poorer a product it produces, the more it costs and the bigger our national

debt. The federal government as a business is a producer of defective products,

unprofitable business investments, and is morally and financially bankrupt.

Historical experience shows neither wealth nor religious freedom flow from

Corporatism or any other Fascist, Marxist, Progressive, or socialist system. All go

against the self interest of human nature. All deny an individuals God given right to

life, liberty, and property.

Todays socialist rallying cry of Income equality is not just a cry to share wealth.

Regardless of name and degree, all state-controlled systems aspire to more than

income and property redistribution. All seek total public (government) ownership of

production and public (government) distribution of such production. All look to

government as the only answer. All seek to build a secular socialistic man-made

utopia in their own image. All result in bigger centralized government control and

planning. All result in varying degrees of totalitarianism. All seek to replace any sense

of God with moral relativism, producing a growing number of citizens who put their

trust in, My government shall supply all my wants. All seek to replace church and

family with a dehumanizing state. All are enemies of Judeo-Christian thought and


Things may not seem promising at the moment. The problem is not just economical

or political. It is a moral and spiritual problem. As citizens we need to stand on the

truth of moral absolutes, be politically active, speak up and speak out. The Good

News, our faith is not in voters, elections, political parties nor their candidates.

Therein victory.

We do need to pray for a national spiritual awakening. We need to pray for our

elected leaders to seek Gods guidance, wisdom, and have the courage to put their

trust in Him. America needs moral restoration.

The potency of prayer hath subdued the strength of fire; it hath bridled the rage of

lions, hushed anarchy to rest, extinguished wars, appeased the elements, expelled

demons, burst the chains of death, expanded the gates of heaven, assuaged diseases,

repelled frauds, rescued cities from destruction, stayed the sun in its course, and

arrested the progress of the thunderbolt.

___ St. John Chrysostom (347-407), Archbishop of Constantinople

Ours is still an exceptional country. Our prayers can keep it that way.

It is not too late. Be Informed Be Involved ___ Michael E. Odell
