Fascist etiquette?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Aug 14, 2003

Could you dream up a scenario in which, during the era of World War II, one individual would be friendly with both Hitler and Churchill?

I couldn't. But it happened.

Today's NY Times carries afascinating obituary for Lady Diana Mosley: a British expatriate, fascist, and-- perhaps above all-- socialite.

If I read the story correctly, this was a woman who took her ideas seriously-- seriously enough to go to jail for them. She was, in fact, a rabid ideologue. But there were limits. She might betray her husband and her country, but there must never be unpleasantness at a dinner party.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
