[Marxism] Ricardo Duchesne

In Italy the Fascist movement was explicitly opposed to the labor movement
and to working-class parties, which it crushed when it came to power. But
looking at this sentence from the Wiki article on him  -- "He argues that
Fascism is to be seen as a radical, reactive nationalist, statist,
party-centered developmental dictatorship." -- it's actually a pretty good
description of a lot of Third World regimes, which came to power in
backward countries where there was not much of a labor movement, or who, if
they were not (at least verbally) "anti-imperialist", would actually be
much closer to fascism than to socialism/communism of the Marxist sort.
