in thread Help to have real Perl's advantage

Imperialism works both ways once Capitalism reaches high momentum. After this point and once the capitalist classes are created nothing stops them, whether economy expands or contracts. WWI economy was expanding, colonies, resources, markets were needed. WWII economy was contracting, interests still there though. They knew they could become big again. They pushed hitler to power. A very simpleminded analysis on my part.

    That's the old Soviet narrative, Fascism == Capitalism on steroids.

    Mussolini invented "fascism", he came to power a decade prior to Hitler.

    Did you know that he used to be a high ranking socialist who turned against his comrades?

    Europe, especially Germany, was flooded with refugees from the Russian civil war after WWI. They brought plenty stories of "Bolshevik cruelties".

    The old establishment was radicalized to support those maniacs in order to "defend themselves".
