    The fact is that Fascism was quite popular in Europe during the 1920s and 30s. It was even popular in the United States. 'Mussolini made the trains run on time' was the myth advanced by American conservatives in the 1930s. Both Hitler and Mussolini were columnists for the Hearst papers. (guess which had his columns in on time and which didn't.) Fascism was as welcome in nations like italy and Germany - and many others - as it's moral and ideological equivalents have been in the USA and Israel in the last 40 years. Germans were not caught unawares by the rise of the Nazis. The left was bitterly opposed from the beginning, and the majority quietly approved or acquiesced.
