As We Go Marching: A Biting Indictment of the Coming of by John T. Flynn

By John T. Flynn

As We cross Marching is John T. Flynn's vintage paintings from 1944 on how wartime making plans introduced fascism to the USA. Flynn was once a trendy journalist and the infrequent case of an American public highbrow who resisted the onslaught of either the struggle and welfare states throughout the interval during which FDR governed the United States. This examine hyperlinks the family coverage of the recent care for the force for warfare and wartime relevant making plans. Flynn attracts consciousness to the sour irony that the US was once changing into accurately what we have been scuffling with. His research of fascism is incisive and devastating.

This situation became itself the parent of another settled conviction that began as a little trickle and finally cut its way deep into the terrain of Italian public thought. It began to flow as a full current in the regime of Agostino Depretis, who rose to power as Premier in 1876. From the beginning of united Italy the country had been ruled by the Right, some of them able statesmen and patriots inspired by the principles of liberation and unity. They were under the dominion of political rather than economic ideas.

Men of all sorts grumbled at it. Politicians of all sorts disapproved it. But most of them resorted to it as an inescapable evil. Italians were like the economy-minded husband who demands that his wife spend less money on the household but without curtailing any of his comforts. 6 Dr. Gaetano Salvemini, whose contributions to the examination of the whole fascist experiment in Italy have been so great, makes one statement about the debt which does not correspond with the above account at one point.

He had a cunning knowledge of men. If he understood only superficially the weaknesses and evils of the social system, he knew instinctively the frailties and vices of political leaders. He practiced a policy of pleasing everyone. 1 A depressing fate has seemed to dog the footsteps of so-called leftist ministries of Italy. Depretis, with fellow liberals in key positions of his cabinet, adopted, when he came to power, the policies of his conservative predecessors and called them his own. He increased indirect taxation, dodged the solution of the problems he had promised to attack by naming commissions.
