How Rolling Stones Suzy Exposito Made History with Her Bad Bunny Cover Story

"I feel like I am constantly pitching celebrities and publicists. So let me ask you before we even get into the making of this. How were you able to score and interview with Bad Bunny? Luckily I had interviewed him before I interviewed him at the Latin grammys in two thousand eighteen. And I seem to have caught him at a time where he was definitely. You know making it big in the Latin space but had just you know started to crack the anglophone market and I went to the Latin grammys and figured what this is where I'm going to find him. Generally bad bunny is a bit of an elusive chanteuse. So he to quote Mariah Carey He doesn't like doing very many interviews and at the time I got like maybe fifteen twenty minutes with him honestly. He's just such a freak. I love it. I feel like Latin music has been sorely lacking in legit freaks. And I'm someone who had described myself as a freak by that. I mean people who are not afraid to try new things people who aren't afraid of like breaking ground who aren't afraid of experimenting whether it's like you know like bad bunny. I think it's in both his style like personal style and also in his music and in the ideas that he shares so I kept in touch. With the publicist. Sue Haley. Sola in I told her I was like I really want him on the cover of rolling stone and she was like okay. Let me know how we can make that happen was like well? Let me know the next time. He's putting out an album and we'll start to work on it. I think lake just every time they would talk about the cover. I be like I think bunnies GonNa do something really big soon. We should be ready for it. there's also the Jaylo insecure a super bowl coming up. I didn't know he was going to be performing with them but I suspected because he did that song with Jaylo before He might be one of their surprise guests. And then he appeared. Soi in Swarovski crystals in so I went back to my bosses and I was like look this dude. He's blowing up like he performed for the biggest most mainstream television audience in the United States at this point like come on and they were like. Okay let's talk about it so I talked to sue Haley and I was like I think we need to make an impression and she was like okay. He's going to be on fallon. Why don't we stop by your office? I was like stop by the office. Bring a few of the songs I'm going to invite my editors and then they can hear the music and like chat with him a little bit and so he came to the office and I only invited like maybe six or seven people and within like two songs. The office just filled up with people. Once they realized bad bunny was in. The office went from like ten people to like fifty sixty people crowded into the conference room. Just like listening to his music. He played a few songs and people were super stoked. I mean the energy in the room was just like so. It was just like dynamite. You know like people were dancing. Kinda grooving with it editors for like are a we can. We can see the appeal and he's so charismatic even for people like who don't speak Spanish. He's his charisma. Just like shines through. They were like all right. Let's do a cover like that's how it happened. How did Gabriela Bailing Gary Get to shoot the cover? Oh it was. It was an idea our creative director had. We couldn't fly anybody there. So Katrina was like. Why don't we ask bad? Bunny if there's anyone like within close proximity to him who might be able to take some nice photos and like she'd already taken photos for him a lot of the photos that you saw in his instagram. I mean over the past three years. She's taken those photos. They've been dating for three years and he hadn't gone public with her and I didn't go into this in the story. A lot of people they say nasty things about people's partners especially because she's a civilian. She is not involved in any of this. She's not a celebrity and so he kind of wanted to protect her. But of course in quarantine. It became apparent that he had someone there with him. And who better to photograph him than the Woman? Who's been secretly photographing him this entire time. At least like his assent in so she took amazing photos. She really did and she did it with an iphone which. I love did it. Add an element then to also be able to have the first let the Anna shoot a cover for ruling. Yes absolutely I mean. I think I'm going to get in trouble for saying this. Because it's it's a fact like most of the people who shoot covers and it's not just at rolling stone but it's across the board in print journalism. Most of them are men. I think it's amazing in a way like how this worked out. At first we were so scared we were like. Oh my God. Are we going to make this happen? Are we GONNA have to shoot this cover over zoom like what take I just really love? The gabby like agreed to do this and she knocked it out of a park. I'm like really proud of her. And Benito's really proud of her to. I told him in an interview I was like. Did you know that your girlfriend is going to be the source To cover? He was like he's like. Wow he was so proud of her and he didn't take any credit for it at all. It's not like he was like Oh yes. She could only do it because he was like. She is talented and like He.

"Power as a result Mussalini and dozens of fellow. Fascists were voted into office that month it was the first time. Mussalini held actual political power. This was far more dangerous than anyone realized next. Mussolini becomes a premium leader of Italy. Now back to the story Italian politics were tumultuous in the years following World War One and fascist leader Benito. Mussolini knew how to harness that chaos for his own ends in many ways. Mussalini took control of the government long before he was ever recognized as leader between May nineteen twenty one and October. Nineteen twenty two. He organized a large network of fascist organizations including economic unions and paramilitary troops the mostly just continued to combat the socialists and bully businesses into agreeing with their policies as to what to produce who to hire how to spend the fascist had their own finance ministers and their own enforcement. It was only a matter of time before the king recognize them as the leaders of Italy and many still fearing the rise of the Socialists. Gladly supported the fascists. They were becoming even more brazen completely destroying socialist newspapers and meeting places. It was now all but legal to be socialist according to historian. Michael our governor. This reached a crescendo on October. Twenty Eighth Nineteen twenty two when the fascist prevented the publication of not only socialist newspapers. But any kind of Daily News. This ensured that they had time to construct the narrative of what was about to happen. They pushed the perception that the country was aflame with violence. If it was it was the fascists who were causing it but they manage to blame the Socialists. This was indicative of the political chaos. The fascist sewed the freshly unified country was more fragmented than ever with Socialists and fascists in both the cities and more rural areas King Victor Emmanuel the third and then Prime Minister Luigi factor initially opposed. Mussalini in fact factor. Who had only been in office since February wanted to declare Rome under siege but the king feared civil war and he knew that his cousin Emanuele. Filiberto was pro fascist. Filiberto was next in line for the throne and could be used to replace Victor Emmanuel if anything sudden and tragic should happen to him afraid for his life and desperate to restore order to his country. The king made a phone call. He was about to make a deal with the devil. The fascists were popular with rural workers. As we've mentioned Mussolini was able to appeal to their anger toward the wealthy and foreign countries in a way that the Socialists failed to Mussolini's belief in capitalistic production. Made the wealthy more comfortable with him. As well and so on October. Twenty Ninth Nineteen twenty two. The king asked Mussalini to be prime minister. Mussolini and his fascist thousands in number marched into Rome on October Thirtieth. Mussalini wore his black shirt along with black pants. Black shoes with white spots and military sash. He didn't look like a dictator so much as some sort of waiter but he had plenty of time to learn how to look the part. The king officially recognized him as Prime Minister Minister of the Interior and Minister for foreign affairs almost immediately. Mussolini took on emergency powers. That kept him in office indefinitely. He used his new power to fill parliament with fascists and passed laws that formerly made socialism illegal throughout the following year in one thousand nine hundred twenty three his former allies who had shunned him for supporting the war where now thrown in jail or worse. Mussalini had now realised a decade long quest for revenge. He had transformed his passion for socialist politics into a hate for anyone and anything that got between him and power he was the ideal Italian man. How could he not be? He was in charge of the whole country and he had done it using the Italian values that he had always known. Were Superior Masculinity aggression nationalism. Future ISM and a splash of socialism that he would no longer acknowledge. Now is the time to implement these beliefs in the actual governance of Italy to return to the glory that he had promised libertarian researcher. Jim Powell writes that Mussalini economic policies. A unique blend of privately owned businesses under the control of the government. Were actually quite successful. Powell says Mussolini's government simplify the tax code cut taxes curbed spending liberalized trade restrictions and abolished rent controls. These policies provided a powerful stimulus between one thousand nine hundred twenty one and nineteen.

"He failed to realize that British cryptographer 's had cracked German communications reducing the advantage of German u boats to nil and he continued to push the Soviet front killing millions and only inspiring Russian troops to fight harder. It was the Russian front. That would be Mussolini's undoing in early. Nineteen forty three. The Italian people were already deeply unhappy. With how many of their sons were being sent to die. In the Cold Tundra of the east the food shortages were also becoming unbearable. His people began to go on. Hunger strikes that crippled whatever production capabilities Italy had left. The ideal Italian man had now officially become the monarch that he always despised as with King Umberto from Miscellaneous Youth is people were rebelling. Then the worst happened failing to gain any ground in Russia and fearing an allied invasion of France. Hitler ended his campaign in the Soviet Union in July nineteen forty-three all of the Italian sacrifice had been for nothing even worse. The first allied campaign to retake Europe would not be in France but Italy herself. The Americans and the British were coming to personally put an end to Mussolini's empire. He was furious at home. He fired ministers and replace them with new ones. He was deflecting trying to make himself seem in control when he was anything. But Chano wrote that. Mussolini now understood that his role was very much secondary to Hitler's but even that was kind. Mussolini probably didn't make the top ten when it came to leadership by nineteen forty three the ideal Italian man strong aggressive anti religion anti-monarchy anti women had no way of recovering from failure. That list of traits didn't include introspection or listening to the wisdom of others which meant that Mussalini failed to realize Chano General Vittorio Ambrosio and another than King Victor Emmanuel the third were plotting to remove him from power on July twenty fourth nineteen forty-three a meeting of the Grand Concilio Delphi. She's Mo was called. This was the ruling council of Fascists. Who had helped form the new government in the early days? Before all powers were eventually conferred on Mussalini on a surface level. This was meant to help. Ill Do che through a crisis but in practice it would allow the most powerful members of the party to legally vote to give command of the military back to the king. At first they're back. Nations came as a relief to Mussolini. He was happy to have others to blame for the failure of the war on July ninth. Nineteen forty-three the allies invaded Sicily. Things couldn't get much worse. Why not step down and yet when Mussalini attended the meeting he adamantly defended his performance as supreme leader. This didn't help his case he was still experiencing stomach pain and he came across as a decrepit madman he truly seemed to be oscillating between a solemn acceptance of his failure and desperate need to blame it on everyone else regardless of vote was taken and power was given back to the king. It was the first time in over a decade that anyone in the country have legal or Marshall Power besides Mussolini. He was so overwhelmed with emotion with anger and embarrassment and fear that he failed to note. What a titanic shift this would cause in Italy. He seemed to have fallen into a state of denial when he arrived at his cavernous office. The next day workers noted that he acted like nothing had changed on July twenty fifth nineteen forty-three he went to meet with the king. He did this regularly. And perhaps assume this would just be another routine discussion. But when he met with the King Mussalini was told that he was the most hated man in Italy. It was true and stunning. Considering that he had been the most beloved just a few years earlier the crippling anxiety and depression that this must have caused left. Mussolini's still unable to comprehend the magnitude of what was happening. The dictator of five years ago would have hardly allowed anyone to talk to him like this. His strength and aggression were replaced by fatigue and resignation after he left the meeting. He was accosted by royal police. Captain Paolo Vignerie had orders to take him into custody. It was for his own safety. Of course the next few weeks where at once a whirlwind and a painful slog Mussolini went from being the leader of a prominent nation to a prisoner with no access to the outside he was shuttled from dilapidated home too dilapidated home for fear that one of his many enemies would try to kill him not that his fascist captors treated him particularly well he was forced to wear the same suit he had been taken in for some time. According to biographer. Rj Be Bosworth. His only preoccupations were to read and chat with a Catholic priest. We can only imagine the thrill that gave him. Meanwhile his stomach still bothered him constantly. Eventually he was taken to the Hotel Compo. Emperor Tori and unimpressive red building on the slopes of the appenine mountains in central Italy. He could only stare out at the beautiful grassy plateau six thousand feet above Rome and wonder where it had all gone wrong. His life had changed so dramatically. From the days of being a blacksmith son to a schoolteacher to a Socialist newspaper man and then a dictator. There was so much hope at the beginning socialist mentors who told him of a new world order where workers seized the fruits of their labours. And even those early days of government though not bloodless were marked by an Italy more united than it had ever been in a shared purpose. Could he see now that his own selfishness and arrogance made it all for not what business did a newspaper man have running a country much less trying to command a prominent position in the most violent conflict in history. Perhaps he thought this. Or perhaps he continued to fume at the injustice that he felt had been done to him his own people rioting giving up on the fascist dream it occurred to him that his own son in law. Chano must have been a part of the KU whatever his State of mind at this point it was soon broken up by the arrival of mysterious glider crashing into the field in front of the hotel. Everyone at the hotel watched in surprise as nine more gliders crashed into the field then that's surprise turned to horror as multiple. Ss troopers emerged charging toward the hotel. One particularly dangerous looking one introduced himself to the commanding Italian officer as Lieutenant Colonel Otto Skorzeny. They were here to take Mussolini and they preferred to do it without violence. The Italian guards stood down some of them out of fear others out of loyalty to their former allies or to Mussalini within ten minutes. A biplane arrived to escort Mussolini and Skorzeny to Germany. Hitler was rescuing is old. Ally next Mussalini faces a reckoning now back to the story on September Twelfth Nineteen forty three Nazi soldiers staged a daring rescue of the deposed. Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. The FUHR had decided he was too valuable an ally to leave to fate. Mussolini likely felt conflicted about this. His continued imprisonment was humiliating. Not to mention boring. And he feared what the allies would do to him if he was handed over. What this now meant that he was more aligned with Hitler than ever the Germans would have to win the war or they would all hang. Mussalini arrived in Rustenburg on September fourteenth greeted with much fanfare. He walked out of the plane to a smiling Hitler who shook his hand and said some kind words but later when they were in private. The conversation took on a less jovial tone. The war was still not going well especially in Italy. After Mussolini's arrest the king and the remaining fascists attempted to make peace with the allies but the allies had continued with their invasion of mainland Italy and any remaining fascist leadership had fled. The Nazis now occupied the northern half of the country including Rome and they had taken prisoner any remaining fascist soldiers for fear of them betraying the Third Reich as the leadership had the allies still controlled the south. And we're gaining territory. According to writer haired Vonda our Hitler told Mussalini. I will be very clear. Northern Italy will be forced to envy the fate of Poland. If you do not want to rekindle the alliance between Germany and Italy by taking charge of a new state and a new government. He was threatening to dissolve Italy as a country entirely unless Mussolini went back and tried to run a fascist government from the north to the Nationalist Mussolini who had staked everything on making Italy. Its Own United Nation. This was the ultimate threat for all he knew. Germany still stood some chance of winning the war and with this crazed forceful transfix dictator in front of him. How could he say no? His mind was so adult by the whirlwind of events.

"Supposed to be a new dawn for Italy. Even a return to the days of the Glorious Roman Empire Fifteen hundred years before but this unification had meant nothing for the average Italian. They still have to toil summon factories others in fields and mines and in nineteen O to a majority of Italian still weren't even allowed to vote clearly. Unification just meant that the top one percent now centrally controlled the labour and product of the working class in Switzerland. Mussolini learned from leaders of Socialist. Thought men like Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky two founders of the Russian revolution and Devout Marxists. They helped him. Hone the idea of what? Italian socialism should look like the rewards of Italian Labor in the hands of Italian workers and no one else not the king not parliament not the Austrians but while men like Karl Marx were calling for self rule. Mussalini never seemed to settle on an exact prescription for what a modern government should look like. His belief system was heavy with contradiction. He wrote that. Socialism means the elevation and purification of the individual conscience and his achievement will be the result of a long series of efforts. This seemed to suggest that he believed in the combined. Efforts of society as a whole rather than the triumphs of the individual but he also admired the idea of the best and brightest pushing to the top Mussalini read Darwin and absorbed his message of struggling against tradition authority dogma. This was survival of the fittest philosophy. The idea that people in power are in power because of certain traits that make them better suited for Mussolini couldn't believe in both the collective achievements of society. And the survival of the fittest. History would tell which side he leaned toward his racial politics. Were similarly convoluted Mussalini. Hated the nationalist racist philosophies arising in Germany but at the same time he spoke of an Italian soul and was dismissive of their Slavic neighbors to the northeast so he didn't like an emphasis on national identity unless it was Italian national identity and he didn't like racism but he had certain racial prejudices. It was almost as if the masculine ideals instilled by his father and sharpened and Catholic. School would never release their hold because as much as he admired. The worker focused ideals of socialism he also seemed to find socialism somewhat feminine many Socialists preached the idea of a global society free of borders where everyone was equal this sounded like fanciful nonsense to him. Italy needed to become a world power. That was the only way for him. Show the world that the hard labor ideals of his youth were superior the only way to show the world that Italians were true men that he was a true man his image of the ideal man was now the image of the ideal Italian man strong aggressive not Catholic socialist but only insofar as you maintained a sense of masculinity and national identity in nineteen. Oh four a twenty one year old. Mussolini was expelled from Switzerland and forced to return to Italy after inspiring multiple riots against police and falsifying documents. He returned to his home country with a New Vision. He would inspire the rural working class that he had been a part of. He would do this by playing on the masculine ideals of hard work and painting the ruling class as a feet out of touch parasites he would paint the Catholic Church with the same brush and his fellow Socialists. Well hopefully they would go along with his emphasis on an Italian identity. Italian product in Italian hands. Not a part of some larger European collective that exploited their labor just as the king was currently doing his goal was to inspire socialist revolution in Italy but by the time he was done there would hardly be an Italy. Left at all next Mussalini forms the fascist party now back to the story in one thousand nine hundred four twenty one year old Benito. Mussolini returned to Italy after years of working with Socialists. In Switzerland Italy was still suffering from the rule of despotic upper-class. Mussolini was angered by the continued violence against socialist workers who protested for safer working conditions and better wages. He saw workers in the industrialized north being killed by machinery. He some miners in the UN industrialized South Contracting Tuberculosis. He would spend the next several years as a teacher and writer largely in the Italian city of Foley. Having learned French while he was abroad he could now translate the radical anarchist and socialist treatises from France and distribute them among the Italian working class by nineteen. Ten is weekly. Newspaper was inspiring new Socialist converts throughout the smaller towns of the north. He was one of them but he was educated and worldly able to expose them to ideas they'd never heard of before his emphasis on masculinity and Italian identity. Interested them even more but there was a new philosophy that Mussalini was exposed to that would further altered the course of his Socialist thought according to author Richard Hallion. Mussolini was a fanatic for flight when he saw a French aviator Louis Blair yo fly his plane across the English Channel. In one thousand nine hundred nine he was awed by the possibilities of the age he was living in. It was like looking up to see a dragon or angel trailing through the clouds. Anything was possible. In this new era for Mussalini. There was never any doubt that this new technological age was one to embrace. The future was right. The past full of kings and priests was wrong. The ideal -Talian man was strong aggressive nationalistic socialist anti-catholic anti-monarchy and futurist movement machines. They would give rise to a new Italy. His audience grew by nineteen eleven. He was an editor for a major newspaper. Mussalini adamantly promoted socialist sentiments with his words while beginning to call for physical action to implement them. He was inciting violence as he had once done. In Switzerland at his word Socialists rioted and blocked the railway lines that supplied the corrupt government of the king. Mussolini was promptly sent to jail. He would be there from October. Nineteen eleven to March nineteen twelve. This only made him more of a socialist hero. In December nineteen twelve. He was given the editorship of anti the leading Socialist newspaper in Italy. His fellow socialists literally toasted him throwing a banquet and allegedly saying from. Today you Benito are not only the representative of the Romani Socialists but the do J of all Revolutionary Socialists in Italy that nickname Il do che. Which means the leader would stick with him for the rest of time. Mussolini and men like him had inspired some change. Nineteen twelve would see the expansion of suffrage in Italy to include most men even the lower class thus parliament and the prime minister were increasingly more powerful seen as at least somewhat representing the interests of the people against that of the king and yet ironically just a few years later. Mussolini was forced to leave the Socialist Party and step down from of anti the years leading up to World War. One made the Great War seem inevitable. Endless alliances endless monarchy squabbling and industrialized war engine. That was just begging to be tested the Socialists in Italy by-in-large saw World War. One for what? It was yet another opportunity for the rich to profit. Off The exploitation of the poor working class men would be drafted. They would die and whichever government one would have new lands and new citizens to pay taxes but there was one among their number who didn't agree. Mussalini always maintained a preference for Italian nationalism. That his fellow Socialists rejected. He didn't buy into their belief in a global society and with World War One. He saw a way for Italy to reestablish itself as an individual power they could take territory from the Austrians and form alliances with important powers like England and Russia additionally war was representative of the masculine aggression. That had been ingrained in him. Since childhood it was also the literal embodiment of machines creating a new future as he had always believed they would planes boats and tanks destroying the old an ushering in the new. He couldn't give up on the image of the ideal Italian man that he had been developing since childhood even if that meant going against the beliefs of socialism around August nineteen fourteen Mussalini wrote the proletariat is not disposed to fight a war of aggression and conquest after which it will merely be as poor and exploited as before at this point. He seemed to still believe that war was just another way for the rich to exploit the poor and yet just a month later he wrote. We have the privilege of living in the most tragic our in world history do we as men and the Socialists. Want TO BE INERT spectators of this huge drama. He was saying that if Italy didn't fight than it could never be taken seriously on the world stage. This was a pivotal moment as it isolated.

"Was somewhat ramshackle. To begin with many young men had been killed or injured just five years earlier. During miscellaneous conquest of Ethiopia. That war was popular in Italy as it showed that Mussolini could do what monarchs of the past had failed to do but it had angered the League of nations. Which was powerless to do anything about it. This new war would ultimately make Mussalini unpopular both at home and around the world on the home front newly conscripted soldiers were often peasants. Who had little training and poor understanding of how to operate the heavy machinery of modern warfare? The people knew their sons were being sent off to die. Italy's inefficient factories produced sub-standard equipment to the point that some soldiers preferred to use World War. One era guns because they were more reliable historian Frank. Joseph even found that allied soldiers actually appreciated Italian artillery as the shells often failed to explode upon impact. The country couldn't get out from behind the curve as its coastal geography meant. Its resources were scarce as always Italy would never be Germany. If for no other reason than the fact that Germany had more forests minds and oil deposits when France surrendered to Germany and Italy in late. June nineteen forty Italy's only gain was the aforementioned coastal town of Montagne. The Germans had done most of the fighting and everyone knew it of Italy. Hitler said I they were too cowardly to take part now. They're in a hurry. So that they can share in the spoils. Though he maintained public support for Italy and miscellany privately. He knew that it was only a matter of time before they became a vassal. Mussalini had to save face. His entire platform was predicated on masculine strength on the ability to wage. Modern Mechanical War. The ideal Italian man was strong aggressive. A futurist he would show the World Mussolini's next move was to invade Egypt from Libya which had been an Italian colony. Since before the rise of the fascists the invasion began in September nineteen forty this was meant to fulfil Mo- SELENA's promise of a new empire. What was more ROMAN THAN CONQUERING EGYPT? But again his armies inferior skill and equipment. Where their undoing the British forces in Egypt struck out first attacking the Italian camps and taking almost all of the soldiers prisoner. Hitler would have to send one of his. Best Generals Aravind Rommel to clean up yet another mess of Mussolini's in the Western Desert campaign that raged from February nineteen forty one to May nineteen forty three. But the humiliation didn't stop there. Mussolini couldn't accept that his army was completely useless against that of pretty much any other European country he thought that perhaps the British had simply been too well entrenched in Egypt. Maybe a smaller country would be easier pickings and so. He ordered his army into Greece and Albania in October. One thousand nine hundred forty both were right across the sea from the Italian peninsula and were of course a part of the Roman empire of centuries past the Greeks would not let their country fall so easily. This was a classic case of Home Field Advantage. They knew the rocky terrain well and were able to outmaneuver and in general out fight the larger Italian army. The Greek campaign was indeed a repeat of ancient history but not the episode. Mussalini had expected allied press which would have inevitably made its way to Mussalini hailed the Greeks as modern spartans holding off the armies of Zirk sees or in this case the Italian off. Mussolini Nineteen Forty one was thus the year of Germany cleaning up Italy's messes. We mentioned that Irvine Rommel was forced to hold off the British advance in Libya now. In April German forces had to invade Greece. The German army was superior for all the reasons. The Italian army was inferior. Hitler's bureaucracy worked. It was filled with talented individuals with undying loyalty to his cause. Germany had abundant resources. That allowed it to produce a seemingly infinite supply of high tech war machines and most importantly there was strong support in Germany. By those who believed in Hitler and his 'cause this is where a Mussalini is waffling. Political beliefs came back to bite him. He used socialism to appeal to the poor rural working class. He used romantic rhetoric about the Roman Empire and the power of technology to appeal to the middle class and the wealthy but this meant he stood for different things to different people and so as soon as the food started running out and the bombs started falling. His support collapsed. Meanwhile Hitler was truly recreating the Holy Roman Empire and was delivering on his horrible promise to exterminate the Jewish people as terrible. As it was Germany's anti-semitism made it into a powerful force. The Nazi soldiers fought because they believed that if they lost than the capitalists and Communists would take over Germany and they believe that both of those groups were really just Jews in disguise scheming to conquer the whole world but Italian ideology was more muddled. Some Italian soldiers fought to improve the lot of the peasant class. Some fought because they saw themselves as ancient or dashing futurists but all of those ideas were too disparate too weak to maintain a fighting spirit. In a sense Hitler's fearmongering mongering was more effective than Mussolini's message of a hopeful. Future Mussalini failed to raise the quality of life for the lower class and he failed to deliver the new Roman Republic that the wealthy looked forward to this was never more true than in the summer of nineteen forty one. When the Germans had conquered Greece without Italian help Hitler then shows to invade Russia without consulting Mussolini nevertheless the Italians were still expected to contribute hundreds of thousands of soldiers. To that Front Mussolini's people felt that they now had to ship their young men to a distant part of the globe to fight a battle that they had no stake in. And that was the truth. Mussalini had lost control of Italy's part in the war. This was also apparent in Ethiopia where the British expelled Italian forces that had bled to take that country just six years earlier fascist monuments were yanked down into the sand meanwhile in Italy the factories were spent. Trade was reduced to zero and any food that people could grow was sent to the warfront in order to survive. Italy would have to rely on supplies from Germany. In just a year's time Mussalini had accomplished the opposite of an empire he had turned Italy into a German vessel next. Mussolini becomes a puppet dictator now back to the story in just a year's time Benito Mussolini Supreme Leader of Italy. The perfect man had lost almost every battle. He fought in and transformed his empire into a vassal to the fanatical powers of Nazi Germany. To those around him his state of mind was unclear. Though it's easy enough to imagine how the EGO centric leader felt about being the laughing stock of Europe. Men like his son-in-law Elliott so chano urged him to make peace with the allies but he was convinced that Germany would win the war in late. Nineteen forty one. That wasn't such a crazy position to take. The United States was still neutral though. They favored the allies. France was conquered nation and Britain was being slowly choked to death by U boats. Only Russia seemed able to withstand the German assault an so Mussalini opted to stay in the war telling his men. We must accept this situation as any attempt at reaction will be a reason to degrade us from the status of a confederate province to something worse than a colony. Even if they would ask us for Trieste tomorrow because that would be a vital city for Germany. We should bow our heads. He was saying that it was better to be a friend of the Third Reich. Then to become one of its servants. It's hard to say for certain. But it's possible miscellany bore some regret for allying with the fanatical. Nazis Italian fascists were fanatical in their own way but their society was more well. Roman it was concerned chiefly with masculinity and less with race in the near mysticism of the Hitler cult as Nineteen Forty. Two arrived in full swing. Things only got worse. The allies intensified their attacks on Italy bombing major cities. Mussolini now had to watch his country. Burn the stress of this began to take a physical toll. He became almost deathly. Ill developing severe stomach pains that no doctor could correctly. Diagnose some said ulcers others dared to suggest that it was psychosomatic. Mussolini's body was punishing. Him for what he had done. The condition eventually stabilized best treated with a diet of warm milk and fruit a further humiliation. Mussolini now dined like an infant. Meanwhile Mussalini could only watch as Hitler turned what should have been an easy victory into a rapidly declining situation. He allied with the Japanese who foolishly bombed Pearl Harbor in December nineteen forty one and brought the Americans into the war..

"On April twenty-seventh Nineteen forty-five sixty one year old Benito Mussolini and his thirty three year. Old Lover Clara Petacci dressed in Nazi uniforms and road with German. Ss officers to the Swiss border. Mussolini clutched his Rotten Gut. A constant source of pains since he had entered the war years of worry over the success of the Fascist Party and over his own safety had left him with ulcer after ulcer and now the greatest ulcer of all he had just learned that those paid so demerit a Nazis. Were going to surrender to the Americans and the British curse all of them and their dead bastard ancestors. He needed them to wait so that he could surrender. I he needed to distance himself from the Nazi regime to prepare legal documents showing how he wasn't complicit in war crimes but there was no time now he had to get to Switzerland. He felt he would be safe there. They had remained neutral in the war and likely wouldn't turn him over to the allies but as the car neared it was stopped by communist partisans enemies of the Fascists. It was a standoff. The Germans and the Communists had similar numbers. It was anyone's guess would survive a shootout. Mussolini had the most reason to worry. He hoped the Communists would just assume he was another German soldier. But for the last two decades he had plastered his face on every poster. Banner and pamphlet in Italy. Of course they recognized him he was. Ill do j. The leader. Welcome to dictators a new podcast original. I'm Richard and I'm kate with this series. We want to go deep into the minds.

Wherever you're listening. It really does help. Last week we began our discussion of world. War Two dictators by tracing the rise of the man who invented Fascism Benito Mussolini today. We'll see how Mussolini's decision to join World War. Two on the side of the Germans proved disastrous to his rule. His oscillation between whichever ideologies suited his purpose came back to bite him as Italians of all political persuasions turned against him. Mussalini had been in power since October. Nineteen twenty two but in May nineteen forty. He had a decision to make. Hitler had ordered his Nazis into Poland in September of the previous year. Britain and France responded by declaring war on Germany and now in one thousand nine hundred forty. Everyone looked to Italy to see which way it would fall. Mussolini's Fascists of course had more in common ideologically with the Germans. Fascism and national socialism. Were basically one in the same believe in the party. Obey the party. Fight for the party. Mussolini's image of the ideal Italian man which he had been cultivating since childhood would now be put to the test. Could the ideal Italian man win a world war he would sit in his offices at the Palazzo? Venezia ruminating on the decision. It was a massive empty space with just a small desk next to the Gargantuan fireplace above the hearth. There was a triangle with the fastest in the center. An axe with a bundle of wood around it. This was the symbol of Fascist authority a symbol of ancient Rome Mussalini had promised a return to the glory of that Long Dead Empire. He couldn't deliver on that promise. If he didn't conquer the world on the side of the Germans many had tried to talk him out of joining the war including Elliott so chano his foreign secretary and son-in-law Italy was not ready. According to researcher. Jim Powell Mussolini's Fascist economic policies while initially successful had turned sour over the previous decade intervening in industry telling citizens wear to work telling factory owners what to produce initially saw a decrease in unemployment and an increase in production but when everyone took their orders from one central authority things quickly became inefficient by nineteen. Twenty five just three years into his dictatorship. Mussalini couldn't keep everything. Straight often approving orders from different finance ministers bureaucrats at every level expected to be paid off with government subsidies as they had been since the fascists took over soon it became extremely difficult to produce anything as a web of bureaucracy had to be navigated to get approval. Any action production went down imports. Were down to. As the fascist system emphasized Italian products prices spiked and the Workers Mussalini had championed suddenly. Couldn't afford to eat but Mussalini was never one for honest introspection. He blamed everyone but himself constantly replacing his ministers and demanding that his people work harder the ideal Italian man started to resemble the monarchs he hated in his youth meanwhile in Germany he saw the younger more fanatic. Adolf Hitler gained the full support of his people and use their considerable resources to conquer Poland Norway Denmark and much of France. In short order the axis was doing what he had always wanted to do. They were forming the Empire that Mussalini had promised to his people. His son-in-law Chano reminded him of his younger self idealistic energetic and yet Chana was against the war but all Mussalini could think was that he owed it to men like Chano to deliver a glorious new Italy in early nineteen forty. He had seemed to agree. That war was a bad idea but by June he had changed his mind. They would join the Germans and sees their destiny. Mussolini declared war on the Allies on June tenth. Nineteen forty he said we embark on our campaign against the plutocratic and reactionary regimes in the West. We wish to break the military and territorial shackles that strangle us in our own see because a nation of forty five million inhabitants will only be free if it has free access to the ocean and so he made the war about gaining new territory for Italy in calling the allies plutocratic or essentially capitalist cronies. He tried to create a contrast that highlighted his own country as more equal and free men in his government. Such as Chano didn't dare disagree. They knew what happened to those who went against the party. And so the Italian military food shortages and all was mobilized for war on June tenth nineteen forty their first move was to attack southern France and capture mon a port town on the border between Italy and France. Mussolini wanted to support Hitler on the French front and gain as much territory in that country as possible the port was captured around June twenty-fourth Armchair historian Griffin Johnson. Points to a wide number of factors. That made this battle and the battles that followed difficult and occasionally disastrous for the Italians. The Italian army.

"Was an eight week project where you went from discovery all the way to a live action and I know there was a lot of research involved as well as great collaboration and love to start with you Laura. Can you tell us why you came to Diana and her team? What was the problem that you were trying to solve? So everything is started. We Oklahoma we have we saw talk about the importance of north technology. That is happening a gross old along with before an old. Is this actually going to try IT We're told that a company. We need to be eating up the the market. And when I it's okay honey. No so that's why we tied aid remind to do something with boys. How come you like basically make school combined most ignored we still being heating issue? And that's why we rely so they were no boy. The pro blend that could be easily so by customer without the need Huntingdon near so. That's why would go okay. How did he great Anakin Lula assists done? That had got the message. Hold them. We'll come on each is without the need for funding Guinea Benito coining on waiting for like x number of minutes. Dessie joining any air to arrive on that. Why we tell okay we need. I could partner to the That's why we go talk to me. And probably Sapien The Anna on the web every collaborative from them I mean at one. They were very adine. Beverly I'm have been like a schoolgirl. Amazing mom point of view. Yeah and Diana as you had said it took you eight weeks. I would love for us to kind of go through this entire process for people to understand how it works and I know it started a lot with the research you did and then kind of creating a strategy. So can you take us from kind of week one through week AIDS? What you all did yes. Sure Solo Project Larson. It was a little bit crazy. You know going from absolutely nothing all the way to live action show when we started. We kicked off the project with a big team We had Actually developed her. Ania copyrights there with Toby and Stamler people from British styled as well and it was committed people in Google for the first brain We kind of got altogether all got to know each other. We have one of the boiler engineers we make sure but we were Working kind of in the right direction and solving the right problem. So basically the way we worked throughout The whole project was guided by Beta We had a program where they had engineers from the other side of the phone. Healthy people so Problem supporters so basic problems like turning the polar on enough again That people can do comedy easy and wait for an engineer to my Dean. You wake up one day seven in the morning and your house is freezing. Realize there's no hidden there is no hot water. It's just awful. If you have something upon that will help you saw the property or life will be so much better than waiting for today's needs to come so that was kinda premise of the work. We took theft role DOTS programme that they have on the phone We can finalize which word problems people were Hobby Morrison. We took those problems and we prayed it. Basic journeys based on flows from technical blows so we prayed as basic. You start tearing me healthy kind of do they stop with avoiders. We talked to the engineer. Health does kind of refined those journeys make sure everything was saying We started working on it like straight away. We knew how important would be to the research. All the time with this Especially with boys. You know it's even more important than ever to proper besides the users so we started thinking very early in the journey we create a prototype. We started testing has said really I think it was six rounds of testing three official once and three unofficial lunch and we always tested every test before we went out like always is supposed to be on week. Three we British cows employees and probably safe and employees We tested the prototype and Berman on. It came mutter of Ethan racing on that for specified so basically they corps the work they happy with the first three weeks and after that we focus on. May Era Handley Unhappy Batch. Everything we could to make the experience right. We passed it again. We you search with the recruitment of boys devices for user on. We tested this time. The second time tested we feed it with the actual developed option so our affair fashioning remark teachers were really really hard and they had a an action but were four weeks five more or less with the with real users and again by Liebau Yael User fessing unbelievable information we eat race it on the copy on the dialogue and everything that we were getting out from the users and then for the final ash around week seven we visited the exclusive really cool experience when to their boy nurse. Martha cut me a sport who they boiler academy on. We fish that we real volume so actually people were fixing boiler Scorpio. This time. He was in with paper. Going there at the beginning actually managed to fix them. That was really exciting. And the last week we just focus on tithing up again improving based on the research on. Yeah we win. Lie On the very last day of those leaks but relies on the lie. They actually live at the moment as well. I love that so you I mean you're really emphasizing the research and the data in the beginning and I like the you're testing throughout the week so correct you are wrong. It sounds like you're kind of doing a little bit and then testing doing a little bit then testing rather than creating this entire thing and testing it at the end. Would that be correct? Exactly yeah so we first they hoppy bus and we put them in a prototype and that was the first base. We changed things on with us that again. So to squeeze shakes research sessions in a big house the apiece every other week that we were best thing I know.

"This separation from his country. Ironically Roenick Lee allowed him time to consider what exactly it meant to be Italian in Switzerland. He saw many of the same problems as at home. MM that country was already the location of many of the large banks. It's famous for today and there was a large lower class that saw none of that money. Switzerland was thus a hotbed for socialism. Mussolini met with Socialist leaders wrote for socialist newspapers and clashed with the police. This playground gave him enough distance from Italian politics to think about them objectively. The country had been united in eighteen. Sixty one under new monarchy and with the prime minister and parliament. It was supposed to be a new dawn for Italy. Even a return turn to the days of the Glorious Roman Empire Fifteen hundred years before but this unification had meant nothing for the average Italian they they still have to toil some in factories others in fields and mines and in one thousand nine hundred to a majority of Italian still weren't even allowed to vote clearly unification just meant that the top one percent now centrally controlled the labour and product of the working class in Switzerland. Mussolini learned from leaders of Socialist. Thought men like Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky two founders of the Russian revolution and Devout Marxists. They helped him home. The idea of what Italians socialism should look like. They're awards of Italian Labor in the hands hands of Italian workers and no one else. Not The king not parliament not the Austrians. But while men like Karl Marx marks were calling for self rule. Mussalini never seemed to settle on an exact prescription for what a modern government should look like. His belief system was heavy with contradiction. He wrote that. Socialism means the elevation and purification of the individual conscience and his achievement will be the result of a long series of efforts. This seemed to suggest that he believed in the combined efforts of society the as a whole rather than the triumphs of the individual but he also admired the idea of the best and brightest pushing to the top Mussalini leaney read Darwin and absorbed his message of struggling against tradition authority dogma. This was survival of the fittest philosophy philosophy. The idea that people in power are in power because of certain traits that make them better suited for it. Mussolini couldn't wouldn't believe in both the collective achievements of society and the survival of the fittest. History would tell which side he leaned toward his racial racial politics were similarly convoluted Mussalini. Hated the nationalist racist philosophies arising in Germany but at the same in time he spoke of an Italian soul and was dismissive of their Slavic neighbors to the northeast so he didn't like an emphasis on national national identity unless it was Italian national identity and he didn't like racism but he had certain racial prejudices. It was almost as if the masculine ideals instilled by his father and sharpened and Catholic. School would never release their hold because because as much as he admired. The worker focused ideals of socialism he also seemed to find socialism somewhat feminine many Socialists preached the idea of a global society free of borders where everyone was equal this sounded like fanciful nonsense to him. Italy needed it to become a world power that was the only way for him to show the world the hard labor ideals of his youth were superior the only way eight to show the world that Italians were true men that he was a true man his image of the ideal man was now the image of the ideal Italian man strong aggressive not Catholic socialist but only in so far as you maintain a sense of masculinity and national identity in one thousand nine hundred four a twenty one year old Mussalini was expelled from MHM Switzerland and forced to return to Italy after inspiring multiple riots against police and falsifying documents. He returned to his home country with a New Vision. He would inspire the rural working class. That had been a part of he would do this by playing on the masculine ideals of hard hard work and painting the ruling class as a feet out of touch parasites he would paint the Catholic Church with the same brush and his fellow Socialists. Well hopefully they would go along with his emphasis on an Italian identity. Italian product in Italian hands not part of some larger European collective that exploited their labor just as the king was currently doing his goal was to inspire socialist revolution in Italy but by the time he was done there would hardly be an Italy. Left at all next Mussalini forms the fascist party now back to the story in nineteen. Oh four 21-year-old anyone year-old Benito Mussolini returned to Italy after years of working with Socialists. In Switzerland Italy was still suffering from the rule of a despotic despotic. upper-class Mussolini was angered by the continued violence against socialist workers who protested for safer working conditions and better wages. Gosh he saw workers in the industrialized north being killed by machinery. He some miners in the UN industrialized South Contracting Tuberculosis He would spend the next several years as a teacher and writer largely in the Italian city of Foley. Having learned French while he was abroad abroad he could now translate the radical anarchist and socialist treatises from France and distribute them among the Italian working class by nineteen nineteen ten. His weekly newspaper was inspiring new Socialist converts throughout the smaller towns of the north. He was one of them but he was educated and worldly able to expose them to ideas they'd never heard of before his emphasis on masculinity and Italian identity interested. trysted them even more. But there was a new philosophy that Mussalini was exposed to that would further alter the course of his socialist thought. According to author Richard Hallion Mussalini was a fanatic for flight when he saw a French. Aviator Louis Blair Yo. Oh fly his plane across the English Channel in nineteen O nine. He was awed by the possibilities of the age he was living in. It was like looking up to see via dragon or angel trailing through the clouds. Anything was possible. In this new era for Mussalini. There was never any doubt that this new technological age was one to embrace. The future was right. The past full of kings and priests was wrong. The ideal Italian man was strong aggressive nationalistic socialist anti-catholic anti-monarchy and futurist first movement machines they would give rise to a new Italy. His audience grew by nineteen eighteen eleven. He was an editor for a major newspaper. Mussalini adamantly promoted socialist sentiments with his words while beginning to call her physical action to implement them. He was inciting violence as he had once done. In Switzerland at his word Socialists rioted in in blocked the railway lines that supplied the corrupt government of the king. Mussolini was promptly sent to jail. He would be there from October. Nineteen eleven to to March nineteen twelve. This only made him more of a socialist hero. In December nineteen twelve he was given the editorship of avant the leading socialist newspaper in Italy his fellow socialists literally toasted him throwing banquet and allegedly saying from today. Eh You Benito are not only the representative of the Romagna Socialists. But the duty of all Revolutionary Socialists in Italy that nickname ill do jay which means the leader would stick with him for the rest of time. Mussolini and men like him had inspired inspired some change. Nineteen twelve would see the expansion of suffrage in Italy to include most men even the lower class thus parliament lament and the prime minister were increasingly more powerful seen as at least somewhat representing the interests of the people against that of the king and yet it ironically just a few years later. Mussolini was forced to leave the Socialist Party and step down from anti the years leading up to World War. One made the Great War seem inevitable. Endless alliances endless monarchy squabbling and an industrialized allies war engine. That was just begging to be tested the Socialists in Italy by and large so world war one for what it was yet another opportunity community for the rich to profit. Off of the exploitation of the poor working class men would be drafted they would die and whichever government it one would have new lands and new citizens to pay taxes but there was one among their number who didn't agree. Mussolini leaney always maintained a preference for Italian nationalism that his fellow Socialists rejected. He didn't buy into their belief in a global society. Righty and with World War One. He saw a way for Italy to reestablish itself as an individual power they could take territory from the Austrians and form alliances with important powers like England and Russia additionally war was representative of the masculine aggression. Shen that had been ingrained in him since childhood. It was also the literal embodiment of machines creating new future as he had always believed they would loyd planes boats.

"Three the the ideal Italian man strong aggressive anti-religion anti-monarchy anti women had no way of recovering from mm failure. That list of traits didn't include introspection or listening to the wisdom of others which meant that. Mussolini fail to realize that Chano General Vittorio and Brosio and another than King Victor Emmanuel the third were plotting to remove him from power on July twenty ninety four nineteen forty-three a meeting of the Grand Concilio Delphi. She's was called. This was the ruling council of Fascists. It's who had helped form the new government in the early days. Before all powers were eventually conferred on Mussalini on a surface level. This was meant to help. The ill do che through a crisis but in practice it would allow the most powerful members of the party to legally vote to give command of the military back to the king. At first Mac nations came as a relief to miscellany. He was happy to have others to blame for the failure of the war on July ninth. Nineteen thinking forty-three the allies invaded Sicily. Things couldn't get much worse. Why not step down and yet when Mussalini attended the meeting he adamantly adamantly defended his performance as supreme leader? This didn't help his case he was still experiencing stomach pain and he came across as a decrepit decrepit madman he truly seemed to be oscillating between a solemn acceptance of his failure and desperate need to blame it on everyone else regardless of vote was taken and power was given back to the king. It was the first time in over a decade that anyone in the country. We had legal or Marshall Power besides Mussolini. He was so overwhelmed with emotion with anger and embarrassment and fear he failed to note. What a titanic shift this would cause in Italy? He seemed to have fallen into a state of denial when he arrived at his cavernous office. The next day workers noted that he acted like nothing had changed on July twenty fifth nineteen forty-three he went to meet with the King King. He did this regularly. And perhaps assume this would just be another routine discussion but when he met with the king. Mussolini was told that he was the most hated man in Italy. It was true and stunning. Considering that he had been the most beloved just a few years surly or the crippling anxiety and depression that this must have caused left Mussolini's still unable to comprehend the magnitude of what was happening. The dictator of five years ago would have hardly allowed anyone to talk to him like this. His strength and aggression were replaced by fatigue and resignation nation. After he left the meeting he was accosted by Royal Police. Captain Paolo Vignerie had orders to take him into custody Eh. It was for his own safety. Of course the next few weeks where at once a whirlwind and a painful slog Mussolini went from being the leader array of prominent nation to a prisoner with no access to the outside he was shuttled from dilapidated home too dilapidated home for fear that one one of his many enemies would try to kill him not that his fascist captors treated him particularly well he was forced to wear the same suit he had been taken in for some time according to biographer. Rj Be Bosworth. His only preoccupations were to read and chat with a Catholic priest East. We can only imagine the thrill that gave him. Meanwhile his stomach still bothered him constantly. Eventually he was taken to the hotel compo Emperor Tori and unimpressive red building on the slopes of the appenine mountains in central Italy. He could only stare out the beautiful grassy plateau six thousand feet above Rome and wonder where it had all gone wrong. His life had changed so dramatically. From the days of being a blacksmith son to a schoolteacher to a Socialist newspaper man and then a dictator. There was so much hope at the beginning socialist mentors who told him of a new world order where workers seized the fruits of their labours. And even those early days of government though not bloodless were marked by Italy more united than it had ever been in a shared purpose. Could he see now how his own selfishness and arrogance made it all for not what business did a newspaper man have running a country much less trying to command hand a prominent position in the most violent conflict in history. Perhaps he thought this or perhaps he continued to fume at the injustice this that he felt had been done to him his own people rioting giving up on the fascist dream. It occurred to him that his own son-in-law Chano must have been a part of the KU whatever his State of mind at this point it was soon broken up by the arrival of mysterious glider crashing into the field in front of the hotel. Everyone at the hotel watched in surprise as nine more gliders crashed into the field old then that surprise turned to horror as multiple. SS troopers emerged charging toward the hotel. One particularly dangerous looking looking one introduced himself to the commanding Italian officer as Lieutenant Colonel Otto. Skorzeny they were here to take Mussolini and they preferred to do it without violence. The Italian guards stood down some of them out of fear. Others out of loyalty to their former allies is or to Mussalini within ten minutes. A biplane arrived to escort Mussolini and Skorzeny's to Germany. Hitler was rescuing wing is old ally next. Mussalini faces a reckoning now back to the story on September Twelfth Nineteen forty three Nazi soldiers staged a daring rescue of the deposed Italian dictator Benito thome Mussalini. The FUHR had decided he was too valuable an ally to leave to fate. Mussolini likely felt conflicted about this. His continued imprisonment was humiliating. Not to mention boring. And he feared what the allies would do to him if he was handed over. What this now comment that he was more aligned with Hitler than ever the Germans would have to win the war or they would all hang? Mussalini arrived in Rustenburg on September fourteenth greeted with much fanfare. He walked out of the plane to a smiling Hitler who shook his hand and said some kind words but later when they were in private the conversation took on a less jovial tone. The war was still not going well especially in Italy. After Mussolini's arrest the king and the remaining fascists attempted to make peace with the allies but the allies had continued with at their invasion of mainland Italy and any remaining fascist leadership had fled. The Nazis now occupied the northern half of the country three including Rome and they had taken prisoner any remaining fascist soldiers for fear of them betraying the Third Reich as the leadership had the allies. Still Oh controlled the south and we're gaining territory. According to writer haired Vander Hitler told Mussalini. I will be very clear. Northern Italy will be forced to envy the fate of Poland. If you do not want to rekindle the alliance between Germany and Italy by taking charge of a new new state and a new government. He was threatening to dissolve Italy as a country entirely unless Mussolini went back and tried to run a fascist government. Right from the north to the Nationalist Mussolini who had staked everything on making Italy its own United Nation. This was the ultimate threat for all he knew. Germany still stood some chance of winning the war and with this crazed forceful transfix ing dictator in front of him. How could he say no? His mind was so adult by the whirlwind of events of the past few months he was in no position to debate to try to get out of this and so he agreed to return to Italy. His new government was a sham regime known as the sallow republic public. He took up residence in Milan where he was only occasionally allowed to give speeches. He spoke of how National Socialism was. Really what he had in mind all along with fascism how would lack the flaws of those other methods of government. Hitler was putting words in his mouth. It was clear or that Mussalini had truly fallen as in previous decades. He would never subsume his ego not to mention his party to the whims of a fanatic. Attic who had only a decade ago. Ben A joke in Italy the sallow republic represented everything that was terrifying about the Nazis in Rome home and other major cities they rounded Jews Communist and any other quote unquote undesirables and deported them to concentration camps. In October Coburn nineteen forty-three thousands died. As a result of this a growing resistance fought back staging small-scale attacks on Nazi forces. They only had to bide their time until the allies reached Rome. They were winning battles nearly every day. Slowly taking territory territory in the south of the peninsula whether Mussolini truly embrace these deportations is unclear but he was irrevocably associated with at them regardless his darkest personal moment came in January nineteen.

Mussolini couldn't accept that his army was completely useless against that have pretty much any other European country he thought that perhaps the British has simply been too well entrenched in Egypt. Maybe a smaller country would be easier view pickings and so. He ordered his army into Greece and Albania in October. Nineteen forty both were right across the sea from the Italian peninsula and were of course part of the Roman empire of centuries past the Greeks would not let their country fall so easily. This was is a classic case of Home Field Advantage. They knew the rocky terrain well and were able to outmaneuver and in general out fight the larger Italian army. The Greek campaign was indeed a repeat of ancient history but not the episode Mussalini had expected allied press which would have inevitably made its way to Mussalini hailed the Greeks as modern spartans holding off the armies of Zirk cities or in this case the Italian of Cellini nineteen forty one was thus the year of Germany cleaning up Italy's messes. We mentioned that air. Vin Even Rommel was forced to hold off the British advance in Libya now. In April German forces had to invade Greece. The German army was superior earier for all the reasons. The Italian army was inferior. Hitler's bureaucracy worked. It was filled with talented individuals with undying loyalty to his cause. Germany had abundant resources. That allowed it to produce a seemingly infinite supply of high tech war machines and most importantly importantly there was strong support in Germany. By those who believed in Hitler and his 'cause this is where a Mussalini is waffling. Political beliefs came back to to bite him. He used socialism to appeal to the poor rural working class. He used romantic rhetoric about the Roman Empire and the power of technology to appeal to the middle class and the wealthy. But this meant he stood for different things to different people and so as soon as the food started running Out and the bombs started falling. His support collapsed. Meanwhile Hitler was truly recreating the Holy Roman Empire and was delivering on on his horrible promise to exterminate the Jewish people. As terrible as it was Germany's anti-semitism made it into a powerful hole force. The Nazi soldiers fought because they believed that if they lost than the capitalists and Communists would take over Germany and they believed that both of those groups were really just Jews in disguise scheming to conquer the whole world but Italian ideology was more muddled. Some Italian soldiers fought to improve the lot of the peasant class some odd because they saw themselves as ancient Romans or dashing futurists what all of those ideas were too disparate too weak to maintain a fighting spirit in a sense Hitler's fear mongering was more effective than Mussolini's Salina's message of a hopeful future. Mussalini failed to raise the quality of life for the lower class and he failed to deliver the new Roman republic like that. The wealthy looked forward to this was never more true than in the summer of nineteen forty one. When the Germans had conquered Greece without Italian help Hitler then chose to invade Russia without consulting Mussolini? Nevertheless the Italians were still expected to contribute hundreds the thousands of soldiers to that Front Mussolini's people felt that they now had to ship their young men to a distant part of the globe to fight a battle that they had no stake in and that was the truth. Mussalini had lost control of Italy's part. In the war this was also apparent in Ethiopia. PROPIA where the British expelled Italian forces that had bled to take that country just six years earlier fascist monuments were yanked down into the sand meanwhile in Italy the factories were spent trade was reduced to zero and any food that people could grow was sent to the warfront in order to survive. Italy would have to rely on supplies from Germany. In just a year's time Mussalini had accomplished the opposite of an empire he had turned Italy into a German vessel next. Mussolini becomes a puppet dictator now back to the story in just a year's time Benito Mussolini Supreme Leader of Italy. The perfect man had lost almost every battle. He fought in and transformed his empire into vassal. To the fanatical powers of Nazi. Germany mini to those around him. His state of mind was unclear though. It's easy enough to imagine how the EGO centric leader felt about being the laughing stock doc of Europe. Men like his son-in-law Elliott so chano urged him to make peace with the allies but he was convinced that Germany would win the war in late. One thousand nine hundred forty one. That wasn't such a crazy position to take. The United States was still neutral though. They favored the allies France. Dance was a conquered nation and Britain was being slowly choked to death by U boats. Only Russia seemed able to withstand the German assault and so- Mussalini opted to stay in the war telling his men. We must accept this situation as any attempt at reaction. Will we'll be a reason to degrade us from the status of a confederate province to something worse than colony. Even if they would ask us for Trieste tomorrow because that would be a vital vitals city for Germany. We should bow our heads. He was saying that it was better. To be a friend of the Third Reich then to become one of its servants. Ervin's it's hard to say for certain but it's possible miscellany bore some regret for allying with fanatical. Nazis Italian fascists were. We're fanatical in their own way. But their society was more well Roman it was concerned chiefly with masculinity and less with with race in the near mysticism of the Hitler Colt as nineteen forty. Two arrived in full swing. Things only got worse. The allies intensified their attacks on Italy bombing. Major Cities Mussalini now had to watch his country. Burn the stress of this began. Take a physical toll. He became almost deathly. Ill developing severe stomach pains that no doctor could correctly diagnose us some said alters others dared to suggest that it was psychosomatic Mussolini's body was punishing him for what he had done. Condition eventually stabilized best treated with a diet of warm milk and fruit a further humiliation. Mussolini now dined like can infant. Meanwhile Mussalini could only watch as Hitler took what should have been an easy victory into a rapidly Lee declining situation. He allied with the Japanese who foolishly bombed Pearl Harbor in December nineteen forty one and brought the Americans into the the war. He failed to realize that British cryptographer had cracked German communications reducing the advantage of German u boats to nil and he continued to push the Soviet front killing millions and only inspiring Russian troops to fight harder. It was the Russian front. That would be Mussolini's undoing in early. Nineteen forty three. The Italian people were already deeply unhappy. With how many of their sons were being sent went to die. In the Cold Tundra of the east the food shortages were also becoming unbearable. His people began to go on. Hunger strikes that crippled whatever production capabilities Italy had left. The ideal Italian man had now officially become the monarch that he always despised as with King Umberto from miscellaneous youth. His people were rebelling then the worst happened failing failing to gain any ground in Russia and fearing an allied invasion of France. Hitler ended his campaign in the Soviet Union in July nineteen forty-three all of the Italian sacrifice had been for nothing even worse. The first allied campaign to retake Europe would not be in France but Italy herself. The Americans and the British were coming to personally put an end to Mussolini's empire. He was furious at home. He fired ministers and replace them with new ones. He was deflecting trying to make himself seem in control well when he was anything but Chano wrote that. Mussolini now understood that his role was very much secondary to Hitler's but even that was kind. Mussolini probably didn't make the top ten when it came to access leadership by nineteen forty.

Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at podcast and twitter at podcast network. And if you enjoyed today's episode the best way to help us is to leave a five star review. Wherever you're listening? It really does help. Last week we began our discussion Russian of World War Two dictators by tracing the rise of the man who invented Fascism Benito Mussolini today. We'll see how Mussolini's decision to join World War. Two on the side of the Germans proved disastrous to his rule. His oscillation between whichever ideologies suited his purpose. It came back to bite him as Talion of all political persuasions turned against him. Mussolini had been in power since October. Nineteen twenty two but in May nineteen forty. He had a decision to make. Hitler had ordered his Nazis into Poland. In September of the previous year written and France responded by declaring war on Germany and now in nineteen forty. Everyone looked to Italy early to see which way it would fall. Mussolini's Fascists of course had more in common ideologically with the Germans Fascism and national socialism socialism. Were basically one in the same believe in the party. Obey the party. Fight for the party. Mussolini's image of the ideal Italian man Dan which he had been cultivating since childhood. Would now be put to the test. Could the ideal Italian man win a World War. He would sit in his offices at the Palazzo Venezia ruminating on the decision. It was a massive empty space with just a small desk next to the Gargantuan Gansu in fireplace above the hearth. There was a triangle with the fastest in the center. An axe with a bundle of wood around it. This was the symbol of Fascist authority a symbol of ancient Rome Mussalini had promised a return to the glory of that Long Dead Empire. He couldn't deliver over on that promise. If he didn't conquer the world on the side of the Germans many had tried to talk him out of joining the war including Elliott so chano his his foreign secretary and son-in-law Italy was not ready according to researcher. Jim Powell Mussolini's knees fascist economic policies while initially successful had turned sour over the previous decade intervening and industry telling citizens where to work telling factory owners what to produce initially saw a decrease in unemployment and an increase in production but when everyone took took their orders from one central authority things quickly became inefficient by nineteen twenty five just three years into his dictatorship. Mussalini couldn't keep everything straight often approving contradictory orders from different finance ministers bureaucrats at every level. Expect expect to be paid off with government subsidies as they had been since the fascist took over soon it became extremely difficult to produce anything as a web of bureaucracy had to be navigated to get approval for any action. Production went down imports. Were down to. As the fascist system emphasized Italian products prices spiked and the Workers Mussalini had championed suddenly. Couldn't afford to eat but Mussalini was never one for honest introspection. He blamed everyone but himself constantly replacing his ministers and demanding that his people work order the ideal Italian man started to resemble the monarchs he hated in his youth meanwhile in Germany he saw the younger more fanatic Adolf Hitler gained the full support of his people and use their considerable resources sources to conquer Poland Norway Denmark and much of France in short order. The axis was doing what he had always wanted to do. They were reforming the Empire that Mussalini had promised to his people. His son-in-law Chano reminded him of his younger self idealistic energetic attic and yet China was against the war but all Mussalini could think was that he owed it to men like Chano to deliver a glorious New Italy League in early nineteen forty. He had seemed to agree. That war was a bad idea but by June he had changed his mind. They join the Germans and sees their destiny. Mussolini declared war on the Allies on June tenth. Nineteen forty he said we Liam Bark on our campaign against the plutocratic and reactionary regimes. In the West we wish to break the military and territorial shackles that strangle us in our own. See because a nation of forty five million inhabitants will only be free if it has free access to the ocean and so he made the war about gaining new territory for Italy in calling the allies plutocratic or essentially capitalist cronies. He's he tried to create a contrast that highlighted his own country as more equal and free men in his government. Such as Chano didn't dare disagree disagree. They knew what happened to those who went against the party. And so the Italian military food shortages and all was mobilized for war. You're on June. Tenth nineteen forty their first move was to attack southern France and capture monotone a port town on the border between Italy and France. It's Mussolini wanted to support Hitler on the French front and gain as much territory in that country. As possible the port was captured around June twenty-fourth North Armchair historian Griffin Johnson points to a wide number of factors that made this battle and the battles that followed difficult and occasionally disastrous for the Italians. The Italian army was somewhat ramshackle. To begin with many young men had been killed or injured just five years earlier. During miscellaneous conquest of Ethiopia. That war was popular in Italy as it showed that Mussolini could do what monarchs of the past. I had failed to do but it had angered the League of nations. which was powerless to do anything about it? This new war would ultimately make Mussalini Cellini unpopular both at home and around the world on the home front newly conscripted soldiers were often peasants who had little training and poor understanding of how to operate the heavy machinery of modern warfare. The people knew their sons were being sent off to die. Italy's inefficient factories produced sub-standard equipment to the point that some soldiers preferred to use World War. One era guns because because they were more reliable historian Frank. Joseph even found that allied soldiers actually appreciated Italian artillery as the shells often failed failed to explode upon impact. The country couldn't get out from behind the curve as its coastal geography meant. Its resources were too scarce as always always Italy would never be Germany. If for no other reason than the fact that Germany had more forests mines and oil deposits when France surrendered to Germany. Me and Italy in late. June nineteen forty Italy's only gain was the aforementioned coastal town of Montagne. The Germans had done most of the the fighting and everyone knew it of Italy. Hitler said I they were too cowardly to take part now. They're in a hurry so that they can share. Share in the spoils though he maintained public support for Italy and with Cellini privately. He knew that it was only a matter of time before they became vessel. Mussolini had to save face. His entire platform was predicated on masculine strength on the ability to wage. Modern Mechanical War. The ideal Italian man was strong aggressive. futurist he would show the world doc. Mussolini's next move was to invade Egypt from Libya which had been an Italian colonies since before the rise of the fascists. The invasion began in September timber. Nineteen forty this was meant to fulfill Mussolini's promise of a new empire what was more Roman than conquering Egypt but again Dan his armies inferior skill and equipment where their undoing the British forces in Egypt struck out first attacking the Italian camps and taking being almost all of the soldiers prisoner. Hitler would have to send one of his best. Generals Aravind Rommel to clean up yet another mess of Mussolini's Leaney's in the Western Desert campaign that raged from February nineteen forty one to May nineteen forty three but the humiliation and didn't stop there. Mussalini couldn't accept that his army was completely useless. Against that of pretty much any other European country he thought that perhaps the British had simply been too entrenched in Egypt. Maybe a smaller country would be easier pickings and so. He ordered his army into Greece..

"benito" Discussed on Dictators

"Back in one thousand nine hundred nine one of miscellaneous fellow writers FELIPO Manetti had published the manifesto of future ISM which laid out his vision for a political and artistic movement characterized by violence machines And Movement the manifesto reads like a rant starting off with a maddening story. About how more Nettie. While drunk driving crashed his car and blamed it on to bicyclist who quote got in his way he took this as a sign. The bicycles represented the pitiful technology legit the past and his car the much more powerful technology of the future in the manifesto he lays out eleven points most of which which are toxic one particularly bad one reads we want to glorify war. The only cure for the world militarism patriotism patriotism the destructive gesture of the anarchists the beautiful ideas which kill and contempt for woman. The contempt for woman almost feels tacked on but this was a growing aspect of Italian conservative thought. If war survival of the fittest rightest was the sole pursuit of life. Then men were thought to be the natural leaders of society. It was the woman's role to be the exalted mother. Other of future Italian heroes. Many feminists balked at this but some women were seduced by the prospect futurist. Thought is very obviously obviously a forerunner to fascist thought and indeed Manetti and others like him would go on to join. Mussalini is movement. There were even futurist jurist portraits of. ILL DO J. featuring striking violent lines and extreme contrasts think art deco meets surrealism. This kind of integration is how Mussolini Slowly won over the hearts and minds of Italians young and old. The irony is that Mussalini didn't didn't really do anything practical to become popular in Italy. He didn't expose corruption or implement some popular policy. He relied on stoking anger and fear the anger of the poor working class in small towns. Who felt that? The wealthy had taken advantage of them and the fear ear that the wealthy had of the poor that they would rise up in socialist revolution and make everyone just like them. The contradictions is that had always plagued. Mussolini now worked to his benefit through this method he would achieve his ultimate. It goal in May nineteen twenty one. Parliamentary elections took place to fill the five hundred thirty five seats of the legislative body. There were multiple competing parties including the Fascists Socialists. Catholics liberals and Communists then Prime Minister Giovanni Johny Gilady wanted to create a coalition that would ensure he stayed in office though his politics were typically mix of progressive and conservative policies. He's he found himself losing popularity with the increasingly demanding socialists. A Prime Minister could only stay in office if they were supported by yeah majority of the sitting members of parliament and so he reached out to the fascists hoping to elect some of them to parliament in a bid to keep himself itself in power as a result. Mussalini and dozens of fellow. Fascists were voted into office that month it was the first time Mussalini leaney held actual political power. This was far more dangerous than anyone realized next. Mussolini Cellini becomes Supreme Leader of Italy. Now back to the story Italian politics were tumultuous in the years following following World War One and fascist leader Benito. Mussolini knew how to harness that chaos for his own ends in many ways. Mussalini took control of the government long before he was ever recognized as leader between May Nineteen Twenty One and October nineteen twenty two. He organized denies a large network of Fascist organizations including economic unions and paramilitary troops. They mostly just continued to combat combat the socialists and bully businesses into agreeing with their policies as to what to produce. Who to hire? How to spend the fascists ashes had their own finance ministers and their own enforcement? It was only a matter of time before the king recognize them as the leaders of Italy and and many still fearing the rise of the Socialists. Gladly supported the fascists. They were becoming even more brazen completely completely destroying socialist newspapers and meeting places. It was now all but illegal to be socialist according to historian. Michael are are abner. This reached a crescendo on October. Twenty Eighth Nineteen twenty two when the fascist prevented the publication of not only socialist newspapers papers. But any kind of Daily News. This ensured that they had time to construct the narrative of what was about to happen. They push the perception that the country was aflame with violence if it was it was the fascists who were causing it but they manage to blame the Socialists. This was indicative of the political chaos. The fascist sewed the freshly unified country was more fragmented than ever with Socialists. Send Fascists in both. The city's more rural areas King Victor Emmanuel the third and then Prime Minister Luigi factor. Initially opposed rosed Mussalini in fact factor. WHO had only been in office since February wanted to declare Rome under siege but the king feared I heard civil war and he knew that his cousin Emanuele Filiberto was pro fascist? Filiberto was next in line for the throne and could be used is to replace Victor Emmanuel if anything sudden and tragic should happen to him afraid for his life and desperate to restore order to his country. The king made a phone call. He was about to make a deal with the devil. The fascists were popular there with rural workers. As we've mentioned Mussalini was able to appeal to their anger toward the wealthy and foreign countries in a way that the Socialists failed to Mussolini's belief in capitalistic production. made the wealthy more comfortable with him as well and so on October. Twenty Ninth Nineteen in twenty two. The King asked Mussolini to be Prime Minister. Mussolini and his fascist thousands in number marched into Rome on October thirtieth. Mussolini wore his black shirt along with black pants black shoes with white spats and military sash. He didn't look like a dictator so much as some sort of waiter but he had plenty of time to learn how to look the part. The king officially recognized him Ms Prime Minister Minister of the Interior and Minister for foreign affairs almost immediately. Mussolini took on emergency powers. Where's that kept him in office indefinitely? He used his new power to fill parliament with fascists and passed laws that formerly made socialism elizabeth illegal throughout the following year in one thousand nine hundred twenty three his former allies who had shunned him for supporting the war. We're now thrown. In in jail or worse Mussalini had now realised a decade long quest for revenge. He had transformed his passion for Socialist List politics into a hate for anyone and anything that got between him and power he was the ideal Italian man. How could he not be? He was in charge of the whole country and he had done it using the Italian values that he had always known where superior her Masculinity Aggression Nationalism Future Ism a splash of socialism that he would no longer acknowledge Now is the time to implement these beliefs in the actual governance of Italy to return it to the glory that he had promised libertarian researcher. Jim Powell writes that Mussolini's economic policies a unique blend of privately owned businesses under the control of the government. And we're actually quite successful. Powell says Mussolini's government simplify the tax code cut taxes curb. Spending liberalized liberalized trade restrictions and abolished rent controls. These policies provided a powerful stimulus between nineteen twenty one in nineteen twenty five. The Italian economy grew more than twenty percent. Unemployment fell seventy seven percent. But this was done at the cost of liberty factories produced what he told them to bureaucrats. Were paid off with government money. Any dissidents were jailed and and propaganda played continuously in the theaters to make sure no one noticed and lest we forget. A key component in the fascist framework was was the perpetuation of violent mechanical war. Mussolini knew that he needed to keep the factories producing and the young people. Fighting universities universities could be a hotbed for socialism better. The young people were distracted. Italy had been pushed out of its African colonies in the late eighteen hundreds. It's an Mussalini. Knew that he could be seen as restoring Rome's glory if he retook them again. An ironic turn considering being one of his original reasons for joining the Socialist Party in the early nineteen. Hundreds was to escape fighting in another war in Africa on October. Third Third Nineteen thirty five. He launched a four hundred thousand man invasion of Ethiopia employing all of the technology of modern warfare there including mustard gas. It was a horrific display of colonial violence destroying a country in service of one man's ambition condition. Although he was extremely racist toward black Africans he did not agree with the growing anti-semitism of the Germans to the north. In fact as Mussalini and Hitler's power grew Hitler constantly pursued an alliance but Mussalini leaney remained aloof. He would always deal with the Nazis through an emissary. It's possible that his egos simply.

Wherever you're listening? It really does help for our first six episodes we're starting with a bang As we explore the lives of World War. Two's three worst dictators Benito Mussolini Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler. Today today we'll see how Mussalini harness disparate social elements such as socialism nationalism and future ISM to forge a new belief leave system fascism. This hateful ideology would be his chief tool in portraying himself as the ideal Italian man Dan and it would go on to inspire an even greater evil next week. We'll see how an alliance with that greater evil no not see Germany led to Mussolini's downfall. Mussolini is often thought of as Hitler's incompetent lackey his fellow fascist. Who Lost the war in Italy and died a day earlier on April twenty eighth nineteen forty-five his body hung the square and spit upon? But that is the modern perception in his time. Mussalini was considered a swashbuckling heartthrob heartthrob a master politician. He rose to power in Italy years. Before Hitler became the face of totalitarianism despite destroying civil liberties in his country and exiling thousands of Italian Jews to concentration camps Mussolini's people loved him mm-hmm and some still do. But how could the people of any time view a monster in such a romantic light and how has there's his global reputation fallen from that of the ultimate leader to the ultimate stooge in order to answer these questions. We must trace Mussalini his time as a socialist agitator in Switzerland to his years as a newspaper man to his crafty rise to prime minister. Aw Mussolini's entire life was a self defeating journey to fulfil a masculine ideal. He was born on July twenty ninth. Eighteen eighty three his father allesandro. Mussolini was his first role model. According to Spark Educational Mussalini once told a reporter after I come of peasant stock. My father was a blacksmith. He gave me strength. A young Mussalini would work the forge with his father sweat dripping sparks Sinjin. His skin researcher Andrea Son Giovanni describes the traditional image of Italian steelwork doc as a completely masculine world where the natural characteristics of man strength courage leadership honor aggression are praised to excess. Mussolini picked up on this learning to be strong to a fault to express only the most dominant reported himself. He was taught that a man worked hard that he and his father were the laboring peasantry and across the country in Rome there was was a king and a church that reaped the benefits of their labor and didn't work at all even worse. There were Austrian kings to the north who ruled old overland and people that were rightfully Italian. Young Mussalini imagine these rulers like fantasy despots almost inhuman every day at the forge. His father filled his mind with ideas about a revolution of workers just like them. Men like them mm-hmm strong workers who made up the real Italy. who would one day inherit the earth? Mussalini loved his father and he wanted nothing. Nothing more than to live up to these ideals. This belief system socialism with a little bit of nationalism would entrance and beguile him and throughout the rest of his life but as much as he admired his father he was also confused by him he talked about strengthened honor but but Mussalini gradually became aware that allesandro didn't exactly personify those things his father's main focus in life life was not on his work or his family but his mistress who we often spend money on while Mussalini his two siblings and his mother lived in a small home eating very basic meals this engendered toxic dichotomy within the young boy. He had a father telling him how to who act like a man but had no strong male role model to actually show him what that looks like and so he would spend his life trying to decide for himself. Mm Self how a man should act while nursing a selfish streak that would topple a republic because of his own father wasn't going to look out for for the young Mussolini and who would. His mother noticed growing anger inside of him in eighteen. Ninety Ninety two when Mussolini was nine she sent him to Catholic Boarding School in the hopes that the priests would be able to calm him. The opposite was true. To the Catholics were largely anti-socialists they took out their political beliefs on miscellany the son of a socialist this included withholding ending food from him and forcing him to sleep in the dog Kennel. His selfish streak deepened as he felt that truly the whole world was out out to get him at the same time. Some of the masculine ideals he had picked up from his father were being reinforced. Catholic doctrine emphasized is the differences between men and women how men were meant to be masculine leaders and Women Feminine Mothers. This idea was driven home by the simple fact that it was an all boys. School with male only teachers Mussolini's growing toxic masculinity famously boiled over one Sunday in the school yard when Mussolini stabbed a classmate in the hand and so his picture of the ideal man continued to fill out the ideal man was a strong hard worker like his dad had taught him but as he had picked up from Catholic school. Aggression was a vital a piece to the puzzle. He would never forget how the anti-socialist priests had treated him there pettiness. There need to exert control all over. A child was anything but masculine.

In Parliament Elections, Populists Seek to Break the E.U. From Within

"Centre-left politician, Frans, Timmermans of the Netherlands, stressed, the urgency of the current moment and what's at stake in these elections, if we screw this up. None of us in this room can look children in the eye anymore. If we screw this up, we screwed up for generations Timmermans is one of the mainstream candidates, who's hoping the incoming European parliament will make him president of the EU executive body the European Commission. He's already of ice president part of the e u establishment in Brussels, and he's worried I believe this is the first time since the beginning of European integration that this European Union could actually break upon. This is no longer a nightmare battery. It is a potential reality. Timmermans nightmare scenario is not the prospect of the other Member States following Britain and voting to leave. The EU negotiating Brexit has been so chaotic leaving doesn't seem like such a good idea anymore. Instead, the anti immigrant nationalist parties, who think Brussels wheels, too much power are running for seats in the European parliament from there. They would try to water down the EU, federal powers over individual nation states or as they would put it they will try to reclaim sovereignty for their peoples if Adi's police than silver in these movements arising means that the something wrong in these Europe. And we will try to do our best to change these European Union from inside. That's italy. Kyle Julia chase it. Mussa liedtke. He's the great grandson of the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and unapologetic about the legacy of fascism. He's running for a seat in the. EU parliament from the small hard, right? Brothers of Italy party, the campaign to remake the EU has a big booster from across the Atlantic. Donald Trump's former strategic advisor, Steve Bannon, who has been spending a lot of time in Europe, advising various parties, Bannon says a populist victory across Europe or put an end to closer economic and political integration and restore the continent closer to where it was before the EU was founded in the nineteen fifties. And that is a Europe of nations discussions on immigration. And some of these basic hot button issues, the thirty thousand pages of regulation that the EU has I think start be cut in half of the year start seat deregulation. And I think over time you're going to see more changes of power coming back to the individual nation states than in is advising. Matteo Salvini Italy's populist interior minister, he's also advising mapping, LIPA, Lee refr-. Francis populace national rally movement and Hungary's autocratic Prime Minister, Viktor Orban. They've all made curbing immigration into Europe, especially from the Muslim world. A central platform plank to promote such policies. Bannon is setting up an academy for Judeo Christian values at an old monastery outside Rome when he was in Italy recently, he was confident the momentum is on the side of the sovereignty movement. The momentum's on the side of the nationalist movement. The momentum's on the side of the populist movement polls do project that after this week's elections populist will more than double their seats in the EU parliament from five to more than fourteen percent not enough to veto legislation. But sufficient to weaken legislative control of the pro e u center. Right and center, left

Nationalist spectre hovers over Spanish poll debate

"Face one of the most divisive national elections in living memory with two electoral blocs, competing to portray each other as an existential threat Spain's feature Ben whole discusses the last days of the campaign within mount our reporter in Madrid. Dusko, you know, second books, but she didn't didn't look. So what I'm not saying this tastes better punch it when I'm gonna kiss just gimme without been Been been. Benito publicly. We've just heard a clip from the opening of one of the televised debates between party leaders, supposedly one of the highlights of this election campaign in how did the party leaders do? Well, they desperately fought to track to the twenty five percent or more of Spanish voters who are still undecided. They were very aggressive polarized dates with the right and left wing candidates bathing themselves in completely opposite colors patriot sons as the socialist prime minister remarked wryly that what TV view as well. Witnessing was a primary of the right wing parties in which they were competing to say the most monstrous things was he being a bit unfair. No, I think he's not justified in saying that he was called the enemy of Spain close friend of those who inch to tear the country apart person who preferred hands bathed in blood too. Into an agreement with moderate forces in reference to the terrorists who tact Spanish cities during the eighties and nineties. It's probably fair to say as well that much of the action in this campaign has been between the three right wing policies. So we're talking about fielded on those the liberal Fazli. Antique Catalan independence party the People's Party, which is the mainstream center-right and vox this insurgent ultra nationalist party. Yes. The arrival of ox is really pulled the other two parties to the right? Is there fearful of losing voters to a party that without any embarrassment? As called for a return to Spanish tradition that recentralization of the state a clamp down on immigration and other populist, nationalist issues that have attracted a lot of people angered by the attempt to session in Catalonia, and who are looking for a home. After the premiership of money her Hoi who is seen as sort of gray and unwilling to attack the secession of the separatist problem in Catalunia head on. And this has been a bit of a gift to Mr. Sanchez, ROY. He's been able to sort of sit back and watches these opponents sort of fight it out. Ironic that as he's moved left to peel off voters from the anti-establishment most, partly he still manages to appear to be the most centrist and moderate of all the politicians because of the parties of the right have moved so far to the right to try to capture that nationalist populist vote. And keep us a sense of how what the polls are telling us about the state of play off to voting on Sunday. Well, the polls point to a very difficult government formation. Scientists is socialist parties palling around thirty percent the traditional center, right? People's Party around twenty sea levels around fifteen, but it must around thirteen or fourteen and vox around eleven and if you put together either left or right block, neither of them adds up to a parliamentary majority which suggests that either Mr. Sanchez will have to make some sort of deal with catalog nationals parties again, which is. In a sense. What led to the collapse of last government? When those parties abandoned him because he would not negotiate a referendum on independence for Catalonia or some sort of cross party agreement between Mr. Sanchez's socialist the party, which has said repeatedly that it will not for a collision with him. But which in the past has supported him and could at some level say we're surrendering our veto of Mr. Sanchez new order to save Spain from an agreement with the separatist that could break apart the country. Whatever happens, it's most likely to be very difficult negotiations into appears that neither the three parties in the right or the two parties in the left will add up to majority and if Mr. Sanchez emerges from this election as the relative at least winner Pablo Casado, the leader of the PP the center right t the big loser. It really depends how the election turns out pollsters don't really know how much effect vox will have they're saying. They're polling around. Eleven percent. But they said that they were pulling around three or four percent in recent regional elections and undo and they came out with ten eleven percent there. The question is whether there's a lot of undeclared, vox supporters who say they will vote for the People's Party, if vox shoots up in the polls and Paseo comes close to

Here's a good question. What what do you love? Most about yourself. Don't you can't say nothing. Yeah. I've never ever think about that. That's the whole point. Yeah. You know, just being more open to people and not just so quick to just a judge everybody, you know, just trying to. I try to share kindness with people. I mean, something that you've stork Lee struggled with like that something that you know, I've always cared about people. I just more. So now, I, you know, I try to push it onto my kids to be kind because we live in a world where everybody's everybody. Add mean, it's and you know, I want my kids to grow up to you know, doesn't matter. What color Yar doesn't matter? What you believe in? It doesn't matter. What kind of job you have you still respect people? You know, regardless. Right. Step one. Don't be an asshole. Yeah. The Booker life. This is one question. I do ask. Absolutely everybody is what is your morning routine. I know you travel for a bit but on normal days where you're at at at home. What what does a normal day in Benito's life? Look like so on a typical day, I get up and feed the two dogs that we have one of ours was living with us. But I I recently joined. A cross fit. Jim. This was like this is back in June. When I did it. And so I try to go three days a week. So I wake up at four thirty to go do that. And boy was cool. Those are not like in your face. Like, we've got a very wide range of people from ages on up, and then just body sizes and everything and so it's nice. You don't feel the crazy pressure. And that's what I liked about this gym. And that's why I went there. But anyway, that's beside the point. So I done doing that. And then pretty much get ready and head straight to straight to the facility. I mean, that's a daily thing for me do like a pre workout to eat or do you take anything eat anything after? No. I just I go work out in the night. Come back, my eggs and couple pieces of bacon. And then on in do you subscribe to from an eating standpoint? Like piliokahi does that come more? I haven't. No. I mean, my wife she when she buys groceries and stuff like that. She tries his stick to the. Outside and not by all the stuff on the in the middle doing oatmeal and shit for breakfast. Now, eggs bacon. What do you have any any fitness goals in terms of being across gym? Or is it just more like? You got to do something. And that's a fucking Jim to stay active. So I love being around people while working out because that's one thing. I miss about the military was a group PT. I thought that was so much fun. Especially you know, like when I went to the command. We'd go out and runs together. And go to the obstacle course. And all that. And while this isn't the same. It's similar in a sense because they. All the workouts are group oriented and people are trying to push each other. And. And what I liked about most cross gyms to now adopting a lot of these workouts that are honor, you know, a lot of the fallen and so. Yeah. Yeah. That's good shit. All right. So I know I know I think I know where you're from because you're big Vikings fan. But I always like to get a little bit of context in terms of where you're from. And what what your childhood was like, I think it's important to spend a few minutes talking about that where you're from Minnesota. I'm from Minnesota. Yeah. So being from from Iowa, we probably grew up just a few hours part..

So I know of how it's used in Japanese culture, and what it's done, but has a little bit more of special there in that way. Are you? You don't do any form of salt cod. Do you or any firm, we constituted dried, fish know? We don't I'm trying to think I mean, we've had will use dried fish from time to time dried fish that. We really use routinely is Benito, we'll do a bonito flakes. So you get in the block, which are delicious delicious, and we put him on top of our sheet peppers. And you know, Benito is skipjack tuna. And it's got that nice. Really deep red color to it. It runs at a very special time of year an oxidants oxidises very quickly sort of go bad, very fast. So, you know, if you're gonna eat raw, you need a very fresh. We'll have kind of almost like a like a ruby color to it. And then it's fantastic. Canned. That's oftentimes a canned tuna like Hiran, Cantona's, Benito. And then in this kind of dried block form, and that's actually my personal favorite other than the raw the raw farms amazing. But it's again, ten days out of the you can kind of get it. So yeah. But we don't do we've done little specials here and there over the years, but we don't do anything to salt baked fish trying kind of processing mostly.

"Filmmaker. I think the last thing is. What is it? The article experience is what is the definition of it? Now is it five hundred people in the theater is it a hundred is it fifty is a two people on a Friday night in front of a flat screen to me. It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it.

"The, best rotation, that we can have you know we. Need champ to come back, and be healthy and. Stay healthy and pitch to his abilities as well and be consistent you know and Antonio San Benito the same. Thing we know what's in there showing us he. Can he can do you know things. In terms of consistent starts last year that. That gave us chances to, win we need to see that out of him too So there's a I think as you, can tell there's a consistency piece here that we're. Going to need rotation doesn't always have to be the best game that that each guys ever pitched every time but they need to as you said give. Us a chance to win every single night and that might look different from? From game to game but but it starts with them and and I think where they're out in their cruiser on position to take that one step. Further as, we as we push towards hopefully unless you have to chip in a playoff last thing from me you mentioned Chad bettas, with Chad, thrown in there that's six guys that. Your hoping that we'll take, that next step and. And really just feel like a playoff team and make that push toward the top what's the news on Chad. And when can you maybe work him back in Yeah he's so Albuquerque team, plays, a plays a double header today their completion of a of a, shortened game from earlier in the season and both. Both chat better Harrison most grave actually involved in rehab appearances in that in that double header today for the for the isotope so we'll see how those. Go for those guys and, you know and kind of take it from there And see what the plan, will create a plan after that chatted Or if he needs another another Hit a he I was talking with Tracy Ringhals fantasy the last thing here with both Antonio and with the. Chad Millie dealt with the blisters before that they'd kind of changed the ball raise the. Seems a. Little, bit always, wondered. If kind of monkey and with the equipment that it kind of caused some pitcher some issues yeah This is an ongoing I think there's an ongoing conversation. In the. Game If. If you talk to a lot of the pitchers Based on our team. But obviously pitchers talk to each other across the game, and it seems like even though MLB has not really Agreed with it or come forward with any sort of, hard evidence or conclusions you know anecdotally across the league from pitchers they. Would tell you that the scenes are different and feels different and it seems like, more and more teams are killing what's bluster issues that's. Almost like we have nail salons going on in our Post game and and really every every, day to, help these guys keep their their fingers healthy and. It's certainly something that are going to deal with and other pitchers are dealing with. Cross the, game and I think the only, conclusion that the people that are are actually throwing the baseball's can, exclusion it is at the baseball scenes are different than they were you. Know two or three or four or five years ago so You know we just our guys are trainers are great at at helping these guys. He'll is it probably something that needs to be looked at, really very, specifically an in depth for next season yeah most. Likely Good, to talk to you I'm. Glad you get a little time off you, are going to be busy I would imagine at least with the, phone to the ear this coming week I'm. Off, is relative It's, a. Great, part of.
