It was on October 29, 1922 when Benito Mussolini, a fascist leader, got the offer of Italian premiership. This occurred amidst the social and political upheaval going on. Indeed, there is a ton of Benito Mussolini facts that have to be learned. What are these?
First of all, Mussolini got to be a penchant of violence. He has been like this ever since he was still young. Mussolini was born on the 29th of July, 1883. He had a reputation for going under fighting and bullying as a child. When he reached 10, he faced expulsion from his religious boarding school. This was the result of his stabbing a classmate in the hand. There was another incident synonymous to the earlier. This transpired in the next school he was transferred to. There was a time when admitted for knifing his girlfriend’s arm. There was even a report saying that he pinched people who came to church. The biggest would have to be the report from New York Times saying that in May 1922, Mussolini became responsible in dueling a rival against a particular newspaper editor. He even mentioned that he was able to inflict at least 100 wounds in here during the battle. This was his take in violence.
Before he even became a fascist, he was a socialist. This would not have to be surprising because his father was a socialist too Mussolini was actually named after that of leftist Mexican President Benito Juarez. There were two middle names such as Andrea and Amilcare. These all originated from the Italian socialists Andrea Acosta and Amilcare Cipriani. During the early life of Mussolini, the names were not that much suitable and appropriate. When he was still in Switzerland from the year 1902 to that of 1904, he was able to cultivate an intellectual image. This inspired him to write for various social periodicals including L’Avvenire del Lavoratore. He was even able to serve the whole Italian army. This occurred for around two years. After a while, he resumed his career of becoming a journalist and a teacher. As found on most of his speeches and articles, Mussolini was a preacher of violent revolution. He got the thinking of Karl Marx and he was even criticized for his patriotism. In the year 1912, he was the editor of the Avanti! This was the official publication of Socialist Party of Italy. However, after nearly two years, he was expelled again because of the support he expressed for the World War I. It was in 1919 when Mussolini was changed. He was able to find fascist movement. This later turned out to be the Fascist Party.
Starting from 1920, to that of 1922, these different armed fascist squads only got to face minimal interference coming from the police or even that of army. This was the realized even as they roamed around that of country. This was the mere cause of property damage and killing during those times and there were 2,000 political opponents who got involved.
