A video surfaced on You Tube from the 'We heart Jimmy Saville and little children' corporation (BBC). It's in black and white, probably from the 1960's, and has David Frost interviewing this apparent controversial figure, Sir Oswald Mosley. What was striking was all the comments below the video. They all supported Mosley! These comments were articulate, intelligent and made for an education by old hands with the technology to give their opinion. We all know the mantra of history being written by the victors. Well, judging by the comments, it is very true.
Robert Skidelsky was friends with Oswald Mosley's son, Max, at university. You can tell this by reading the biography. What a refreshing read! Oswald Mosley is portrayed as a human!
Skidelsky is even pro fascists, in the 1930's meaning of the word, and he even hints that Germany was indeed stabbed in the back! Further along the narrative, Skidelsky is back on script but you can tell where his heart is.
I can imagine a teenage Robert Skidelsky and teenage Max Mosley in university, talking about dad and philosophical issues and German literature and how cool dad is. These memories stay in the mind of Robert Skidelsky and this is why he wrote this book.
Skidelsky is even part jewish and that's a lesson that an objective biography is possible and one doesn't have to portray ones opponent as Satan.
The only difference between our system of fascism and Mosley's is that we elect our dictators every 5 years or so. Mosley's system would never have worked anyway because he didn't add a controlled opposition into his eqiasion. Mosley was stuck in the old system of thought. Not even Plato figured out the best form of dictatorship is two masks on the same face. This way the masses will elect one mask and when they boil, the next mask gets into power! The problem of all systems is how to control the opposition.
Our system of fascism have rectified that problem.
