Quote of the Week- Benito Mussolini

I have just finished reading Chuck Palahniuk's ("Fight Club") newest novel "Pygymy," which looks like one of those works which will demand a second reading.

In the novel, Palahniuk frequently quotes cruel dictators, so this week we have two respective quips from two henchmen on our blogs (Fidel Castro is on "Politics, Culture, and Other Wastes of Time).

Here we have Benito Mussolini who ruled fascist Italy with an iron fist until he was overthrown and hanged. But, he did have a way with words:

"Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice it is a fallacy."
