In 1968, situationist philosopher Guy Debord wrote, 'Italy is the epitome of the social contradictions of the whole world.' For this reason, Italy was once, 'the laboratory of international counter-revolution'. Political analysts around the world are now scrutinizing the statements of Italy's new prime minister, Giorgia Meloni, to see if she is a fascist or a neo-fascist. Their question is, why did the people of Italy now voluntarily return to their darkest history?
Now the question is, did the people of Italy really revive their fascist past? The more important question is, is Italy really a laboratory whose experience the rest of the world will follow? The answer to the first question is no, the answer to the second question is yes.
Those who call the Brothers of Italy a fascist party miss a point. Benito Mussolini's fascist movement is not behind the birth of Meloni's party. Meloni is a shrewd political leader and has the ability to play the political arena for a long time. In 2012, he left the relatively safe camp of Silvio Berlusconi and started his own group Brothers of Italy. Meloni bided his time and worked hard to build the team in the following years. Despite the opportunity in 2021, Meloni did not join Mario Draghi's national unity government.
Maloney now came to power himself. First Prime Minister elected in a patriarchal society. He will not want to lose this achievement by doing something so bad as to recreate the fascist past of hundreds of years ago. Meloni's aim is to create a new center of politics for Italy and Europe.
Meloni's desire was evident during his election campaign. He has done everything to secure the support of the US administration. Besides expressing his full support for NATO, he has expressed his anti-Russian and anti-Chinese position. It also reassured the market economy and the European Union that its government would bring public debt under control. Both of Meloni's moves disappointed his allies Berlusconi and Salvani. Both of them are sympathetic to Russia.
Meloni reassured Washington and Brussels on foreign and economic policy. This policy is absolutely correct. Because, through this, he can consolidate his power and implement his agenda in relative peace. He avoided the risk of putting the Italian government in a fragile position at a time of security, energy and public life crises.
