The incredible irony of all this is that the fascist movement in Europe that lasted from the 1920s to 1945 was actually pro-worker/pro-union. Their platform bore a striking resemblance to the Progressive movement platform at that time, since they were both outgrowths of the same type of thought.. namely: Pro-worker/pro-union Minimum-wage Less unemployment Soak the rich Redistribution of wealth. Class warfare based rhetoric Hitler's Germany ceased to be that after the late 30s, but Mussolini's never did. And note here I'm NOT calling Liberals/Progressives Hitlers.. even though there WAS a racial component ( Eugenics was part of Progressivism, aimed at reducing the numbers/influence of what they called the 'dirty races')
