Because freedom can't protect itself
This stuff drives my friend, who used to be the Hedge Funds manager, completely crazy with anger.
He said his mom escaped Mussolini's Italy, only to "come here and be treated like shit by DIFFERENT Fascists."
He wishes they'd remember what actually HAPPENED to Mussolini at the END of the war, at which time he and his entire family were shot down like dogs and then he was hung by his heels in the town square. Not that the guy's saying it's RIGHT that such a thing occurred. His emphasis was on the fact that rich people "forget what they WANT to, or refuse to think anything that terrible will happen to them b/c their name is such-and-such or so-and-so."
They're always asking "Do you know who I AM?" And he's always wanting to say "No. Who ARE you? Better yet, who CARES?"
