In a lecture in Avery Hall, "Democracy Is Not a Failure," Count Carlo Sforza, former minister of foreign affairs of Italy, compared democracy to an old carriage drawn by horses—it goes slowly "but in carriages led by horses you always go." In contrast, the anti-Fascist aristocrat said, according to The Miscellany News, "Dictatorship is like two swift, gigantic motor cars, driven by insane drivers, filled with people yelling and shouting. We know why they shout. 'It is because they are afraid.'"
