    Might is right - Benito Mussolini quote.  It seems it still is.   Your views?

    There is also a saying: "The one who dies having the most toys wins."  But does not hold water either.  Might just means who has the most force or the biggest guns.  Doesn't not make that side right.  Just the one with more weapons or more firepower. A quote from a dictator like that is not surprising.

    Dictator Mussolini, who once collaborated with Hitler's Germany thought he was mighty, and in the end got his butt kicked i.e. Italy losing to the allied forces, if my history serves me right. So, I concur with BobbiRant. And I also believe that people with arrogance would make such as statement.

    Might may win, it may have muscles to knock everyone else down, but that doesn't make it Right.  So I would beg to disagree.

    They don't have armies and police forces for nothing.

    But brute force to do what one wants is immoral.  The Roman Catholic Church did that for years until the reformation brought change.  You could be burned alive for not attending church or speaking out against the church.  That was pretty excessive force.

    But force works if there are none to oppose it.  It's why there are still many dictatorships in the world.  Force works but it doesn't make it right.

    Might has never been associated with a grain of truth, or even the slightest hint of "right," but power is derived from the barrel of a bun, as chairman Mao said.
