          1. I take your point, but he was hardly youthful at the time. He befriended Mussolini when he was in his 40s and broadcast antisemitic and fascist propaganda throughout his 50s and until the end of WWII, when he was 60. Just saying.


          2. I’m not at all saying you shouldn’t have posted it. You can and should post whatever you want on your blog. I was just responding with my reaction to seeing Pound associated with freedom from oppression, which is that I was surprised given his background. That’s my only point.


  1. I can’t imagine being a slave, and not knowing what freedom is. I think there’s more to slavery than that being passive. I’ve read about many non-passive persons who still ended up in slavery, and lost their lives trying to get free. It’s a part of history no one should want to repeat. Next time around it could be me. Looks like you have a lot of successes here. :)
