Mussolini's creation of fascism brought extra conflict to an already divided Italy. While some found fascism to be a possible answer to the problems of the time, as Mussolini and other fascist spokesmen claimed, others such as socialists and the working class were being directly targeted by fascist supporters. This comic shows Mussolini giving a speech about the benefits of fascism, but when he's called out for the violence it was bringing to the common people, he waves it off as merely reactionary; meanwhile he reaps the benefits of fascism and climbs the ranks of government up to becoming prime minister.
Fascism is what this country needs! It will finally address the issue of the transformation Italy requires and is the best government for ALL Italians!
What about all the workers and socialists who are being attacked by fascist supporters?!
Welcome New Prime Minister!
What? Oh, never-mind that, it's only a reaction. For Fascism! - and, uh, Italy!
