Yves Smith of naked capitalism put to our attention
I've read most, maybe all, of the important Hitler biographies (still missing one that concentrates on "Hitler, the Munich Bohème years" or "Hitler, homme à femmes") so nothing new to see in this film. Maybe Hugenberg deserved a byline like "Germany's Murdoch".
Central in this rather linear narrative is the moment when Hindenburg who has beaten in previous elections Hitler, with the help of the social democrats and the catholics, nominates Hitler chancellor of the Reich. A move that has to do with Hindenburg antidemocratic spirits. Now to Italy.
President Napolitano, elected without Berlusconi's vote, doesn't send Berlusconi, who's without a parliamentary majority (but not yet "sfiduciato"), back to parliament but forces a "Grosse Koaltion" to vote a government made of technocrats. A move that has to do with Napolitano's antidemocratic spirits.
This is particularly unfortunate because Italy's main, I'd even say only problem is to be full with laws that are not applied. Therefore Italy's institution are of mediocre quality and without sound institutions there is no growth.
