Yes, but when world leaders indulge in such nonsense, it is a sign of a society in serious crisis or being on the verge of collapse.She may be batshit insane but at least she's pouring most of her energies into making glamour films instead of national purges like Stalin or recreating the hell on Earth that is the Islamic State.
While that it's true is also true that reconstruction make the preservation and the enjoyment of the structure easier;Reconstructions of ancient sites? Does Italy not have historians and archeologists who would be able to explain why attempts to rebuild a historic structure are more damaging to the study and authenticity thereof?
I think he is kind of like the fascist Khrushchev: putting a human face on an inhuman system.Balbo certainly brings a different dynamic to the role of Duce. Starting his reign at 67 rather than 40 like Mussolini he seems destined for a much shorter reign; but despite that it seems the 'Balboan Era' will be a distinct and notable chapter of Italian History and the RA.
it might be part of his ego, but Balbo is certainly embracing the media of his time; certainly makes him something new for a Fascist leader to the West. Him visiting Disneyland has me wondering if he will command for a similar park to be built outside Rome.
Not to mention...very, very humanizing.
Ship the oil out easier, Hydropower, etc.Wikipedia tells me that there's oil in the Qattara Depression. This grandiose statement is going to make getting it a pain in the ass later.
What do the Italians plan to do with their new inland sea? Again, Wikipedia says that people have been proposing some sort of hydroelectric system for a while now.
I'd actually argue that makes it even more important to laugh. Laugh for the people who can't, ridicule her and every batshit principle of the regime she reigns over, make her so unbelievably ludicrous that it becomes nigh-impossible to seriously resurrect even a facet of her ideology. They can't laugh, so make sure you laugh a little harder for all the slaves of her Red tyranny.Yes, but when world leaders indulge in such nonsense, it is a sign of a society in serious crisis or being on the verge of collapse.
You can laugh at this, but remember that there are millions of people who face severe punishment for treating these antics like jokes.
Vicisti, Galilee!Then, as Mussolini was reaching imminent demise, to much astonishment from his associates, he asked for a priest to perform the last rites. This was news to his close associates, who knew him to be an atheist. Given that the event was announced publicly, debate still rages over whether Mussolini’s conversion was sincere.
Dammit, @Sorairo out here making me feel for a brutal dictator.Finally, at 8:20 PM in Rome, Mussolini turned to Balbo with sudden lucidity and asked, “W-was I worth Isaac’s sacrifice?” Before Balbo could reply, the dictator’s eyes rolled behind his head. The head fell limp upon the pillow, and the heart that beat through the body of such a fearsome man went silent. With that died one of the most controversial, divisive and fascinating characters of the Twentieth Century.
Mussolini is as human very controversial person. In other hand he was ruthless totalitarian dictator who supressed democracy and all basic human rights and created secret police which torture and kill people. Furthermore he didn't hesistate order ethnic cleansings or allowed to use WMDs.
