  1. A wise and intelligent chap, but I’d disagree that the Church should not be “imposed” on the people from on high. Of course it should. You don’t refuse to give a child his medicine just because he might find it distasteful.

    Besides, the Corporative system was written very large in Fascist Italy, though in fact the country remained capitalist in a modern sense. The difference was the idea of a quiet, but efficient balance between interests which worked very well in Italy and has been then adopted in a certain measure by Post-War Germany. Still, we’d be surprised today at how brutally capitalistic even Fascism was.
