Immediately following the September 2008 U.S. and global financial meltdown, Gerald Celente was a welcome voice in the wilderness of those who understood the failed policies of the banking elite, and could articulate them in a captivating way. The problem is, he’s been repeating the same talking points ever since.
Hardly an interview goes by when he doesn’t blast the same old “white shoe boys,” and telling us for the zillionth time, incorrectly mind you, that Mussolini knew something about fascism, and that it’s the merger of government and corporations. That, despite Italian speaker, Webster Tarpley, pointing out that Mussolini said no such thing, and that the word Mussolini used — corporazione — referred to guilds, where owners took personal responsibility, as opposed to modern corporations , where directors have unlimited liability, except for very, very rare circumstances where the “corporate veil” is pierced.
And, as George Whitehurst-Berry has stated, whatever fascism is or isn’t, it is intensely nationalistic. Conversely, what we are seeing these days is intensely internationalistic, and therefore fails the fascism test, among other reasons.
