The headline in the Britannica's pages for Today in History call this date the fall of Fascism but those of us that look at the modern world with clear unveiled sight cannot fall for such ridiculous bylines. It's pretty clear that the forms of present day (small 'f') fascism are far more treacherous than the open and undisguised fascism of Mussolini and Hitler. I'm pretty surprised to see such an ideological landmine so surreptitiously decorating what is supposed to be a highly respected authority's front page. But I guess they are presently more interested in generating traffic than in being accurate and respectable.
