„Both Hitler and Mussolini have plagiarized and imitated practically everything from everyone. Mussolini stole from the Bolsheviks and from Gabriele D’Annunzio, and found inspiration in the camp of big business. Hitler imitated the Bolsheviks and Mussolini.“

—  Leon Trotsky, Stalin: An Appraisal of the Man and his Influence, trans. by Charles Malamuth, New York: NY, The Universal Library (Grosset & Dunlap), 1941, p. 412

„Hitler and Mussolini rose to power in their own countries very largely because they could grasp this fact and their opponents could not.“

—  George Orwell English author and journalist 1903 - 1950
Context: One cannot see the modern world as it is unless one recognizes the overwhelming strength of patriotism, national loyalty. In certain circumstances it can break down, at certain levels of civilization it does not exist, but as a positive force there is nothing to set beside it. Christianity and international Socialism are as weak as straw in comparison with it. Hitler and Mussolini rose to power in their own countries very largely because they could grasp this fact and their opponents could not. The Lion and the Unicorn (1941), Part I: England Your England
