Is Mussolini Right on this One????……

My family said I should do something on an Italian guy , since I am Italian! So, here goes:

“Inactivity is death.”
Benito Mussolini

Actually, the guy has a point. I would have to agree with it! I am sure he is thinking along the lines of war games, where I am referring to everyday life! He was figuring if his guys just stood around and did not plan their next attack, they would be dead! I am thinking more along the lines of not being motivated to do much in life, so in part…I believe, you are kind of dead. I also am thinking along health issues. If you need to exercise and stay fit to live, or else you may have more health risks, I agree…inactivity could lead to death. Another way I look at this quote is in the area of our brain. If we do not keep it stimulated and fed, it will eventually begin to die off. So, I guess in a weird way…Mussolini makes sense! You are kind of dead to things physically, mentally, and spiritually if you do not make the effort in life. So, OK Mussolini…in a weird way, I agree with you!

  1. Yes, I experienced this. If you just do nothing all the time and give up, you do have a morbid feeling howering over you. I found when I keep busy, I am happy to be alive. I guess Mussolini has a point.

  2. Well, looking at it with your points, I agree. Looking at it with his points, I agree. I guess when you got to move, you got to move!

  3. What I meant. We have to stay active in life doing what we love to do to stay healthy! Mussolini happened to like to do things that I wouldn’t have done, but that is besides the point!

  4. I totally agree! Sitting around all the time inactive is bad for the heart for sure and can lead to depression. Getting out and doing things makes for a healthy heart and mind. Keep busy!!!! 🙂

  5. I agree. If you decide to do something, no matter what, it is still better to do than not to do.

  6. he was a despot. remember he was hanged, that would
    make anyone inactive! so is death not inactivity?

  7. Good point, Mario!
