George F. Will: Putin Is Doing His Best to Out-Fascist Mussolini

From a Washington Post column by George F. Will headlined “Putin is doing his best to out-fascist Mussolini”:

Fascism’s vitality in the 21st century marks it as the most successful fighting faith from the 20th century. So, it is well to understand fascism’s founder, who 100 years ago this October orchestrated the March on Rome (he arrived there by railroad sleeper car) that propelled him into power at 39, the youngest ruler in the world at that time. The destroyer of Italy’s parliamentary democracy has a political descendant occupying the Kremlin today.
