->When I was a boy I was taught to think of Englishmen as the five-meal people. They ate more frequently than the poor but sober Italians. Jews are rich and help each other through a secret web of mutual assistance. However, the followers must be convinced that they can overwhelm the enemies. Thus, by a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak. Fascist governments are [[GeneralFailure condemned to lose wars]] because they are constitutionally incapable of objectively evaluating the force of the enemy.

'''Frank:''' That'd be alright for you, not for him. The Roccos don't, or they wouldn't be Roccos. No, smacking her isn't enough; it's too great an insult. He'd have to kill her.
