"The measures adopted to restore public order are:
First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements. ...
They were elements of disorder and subversion.
On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to
confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind.
This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy,
has given satisfactory results."
(1883-1945) Italian dictator during WW2, founder of Italian Fascism, 'Il Duce'
Speech delivered by Prime Minister Benito Mussolini before the Italian Senate, June 8, 1923. Reproduced in Mussolini as Revealed in His Political Speeches (London & Toronto: J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd., 1923), pp. 308-309.
