Benito Mussolini launched his fascist movement with the foundations that fascism was like a religion. He established commandment-like covenants for his people. These elements he described were rooted in tradition and cooperation among classes, through national-centric motivations. The ideology was focused on moving forward and progress but it rejected liberal ideas. Fascism was conquest-orientated and in the doctrine written on behalf of Mussolini, imperialism was cited to be moral and spiritual rather than militarized. Fascism was contradictory. That was the character of the state, confused. Mussolini promoted ideas that were supported by intolerance. An appointed leader that tyrannically came to be dictator by use of force did not emulate the ideals of "cooperation" he stated fascists idealized. Mussolini was the springboard for Hitler who used Mussolini's ideas and approach to conquest and leadership. He created fear of opposition and fabrication of a better country and life if the people agreed to follow. Immense control is what the ideaology became and permeated through Italy.
