"The Government has been compelled to levy taxes which unavoidably hit
large sections of the population. The Italian people are disciplined,
silent and calm, they work and know that there is a Government which
governs, and know, above all, that if this Government hits cruelly
certain sections of the Italian people, it does not so out of caprice,
but from the supreme necessity of national order."
-- Benito Mussolini
(1883-1945), Italian dictator during WW2
