Decalogue of the Vanguard (1927)

(Published in Per la nuova anima italiana, 1927)

By Giuseppe Spina

Vanguards of Italy:

1. love the Fascist Fatherland;
2. offer your blood to the greatness of the Fatherland;
3. hate the enemies of Italy because they are your enemies;
4. dedicate your arm and mind to good;
5. obey the laws of the State, doing your utmost to enforce them;
6. use force, violence and weapons only in defense of your honour and the Fascist idea;
7. adore Benito Mussolini, the Father of the Fatherland, because he devotes his unbreakable will, his inexhaustible activity and his invulnerable life to Italy in every moment with boundless love.
