GUEST,PMB BS: How many socialists are there here? (178* d) RE: BS: How many socialists are there here? 15 Apr 08

He actually was the guy who got the trains to run on time

Others have suggested that that was a side effect of using 3 phase induction motors in the electrification of the Italian railways. With those motors, they either run on time or not at all :)

Note Teri: Social != Socialist in Benito's case.
National Socialist != Any Other sort Of Socialist in Schickelgrueber's case.

Also note that the Mugabes, Nkrumahs, Kenyattas and so on used the tag 'socialism' as a way of getting support (economic and political) from the Soviet Union. Other dictators, like Banda and Bokassa, courted Britain and America. The result on the ground was often not a lot different.
