Warner on Garibaldi vs. the Bourbons

Garibaldi and the Risorgimento paved the way for Fascism and the EU, says Gerald Warner, defending the Italian Bourbons and Habsburgs in the process.

I never cease to be amazed and delighted by this great journalist, and by the fact that he is able to express such counterrevolutionary sentiments at the website of a mainstream newspaper. Is there any heroic "lost cause" he will not champion? Can you imagine an American media organ publishing commentary praising the Kings of the Two Sicilies and the Grand Dukes of Tuscany?
