Remember, Comrade Benito?
Whether it be true, or not, that serious rioting has
taken place in Northern Italian industrial cities, we do
not know. It is more than likely that indirect reports
are exaggerated or even untrue
And yet it is not illogical that there should be
such disorders, now or later. Seeds of socialism, and
of anti-imperialism, were sown there many years ago,
Later efforts have been made to root them out, but
deep beneath the soil of the Romagna they may re-
Who sowed those seeds? Thirty years ago a
young socialist was agitating in Forli, Milan, and oth-
er cities, demanding violent sabotage against Italian
imperialist military ventures into Tripoli. Outstand-
ing in his advocacy of violence, he urged that women
lie down on the railroad tracks to bor trains from car-
rying Italian boys to Africa to fight for the realization
of imperial ambitions. He even served five months
in jail after an affair at Forli in which railroad tracks
were torn up to prevent the passage of troop trai/is
The name of this agitator3 Benito Mussolini, o
ragged, sick, unstable workman who had spent hours
agitating for every moment of honest work he had ever
Thirty years have passed, and now, so wonderful
is human life and the strange things that happen to
men, it is this same man who is sending fresh trans-
ports full of young Italians to die in the same Africa
for another Imperial Dream. It is this same man who
dreams of resurrecting the ghost of the old Roman
Empire, and who flings legions against Greece, and
Albania, and Ethiopia.
Truly, in all history there are few parallels to this
socialist turned fascist, this worker turned ruler, this
anti-imperialist turned imperialist, this poor, ragged
agitator turned to a rich, braid-uniformed imperator,
this man who tried to stop the troop trains issuing or-
ders that the trains shall move again.
Should it happen as it may have happened, or as
it may yet happen, that discontented workmen of Mi
Ian or Turin, watching the casualty lists that have cost
50,000 dead and wounded and I 10,000 prisoners,
watching the infiltration of the alien German, should

The CAA is getting tougher and
