The youth’s fascination with Fascism

Juan Abreu in his Emanaciones #1082 (my translation):

1082

Fascism was fundamentally a youth movement. Yes, Italian fascism was very attractive to the cackling youth. At the end of the day, young people are very similar to a horde. Like a herd. You don't need to do anything more than see what they do.

One after another, I remember my terrifying experiences and recall that young people were also fascists, or in other words communists. And for every young non-fascist there were 100 fascists trying to earn merits in order to join the communist youth. Even today, things have not changed. Actually, they have changed for the worse: For every dissident or prisoner, or in other words, for every decent person there are thousands, million of fascists young people, collaborators, dirt bags, and ass kissers at the service of the dictatorship.

Kids. Bah. I'll stick with literature.
