Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini in 1933 amid the Great Depression announced that modern capitalism or "supercapitalism" was a failed economic system that had begun in 1914 that was the result of the long-term degeneration of capitalism. In 1938, Mussolini excalated a public relations campaign against the Italian bourgeoisie, accusing them of preferring private gain to national victory. Mussolini ordered Fascist party members to detach themselves from bourgeois culture, including abstaining from going to nightclubs, stop drinking coffee, to not use formal evening dress, and to not starch their collars, which were all considered bourgeois traits. In addition that year Mussolini's anti-bourgeois theme spoke of removing first-class compartments, dining cars, and sleepers on railroads and possibly closing the stock exchange. In that year, Mussolini appointed Achille Starace to his cabinet, Starace attacked Northern Italian bourgeosie for Fascism's inability to permeate across the Italian nation, accusing them of being pacifist and pro-England.show more
