Benito Mussolini had many goals to be a great dictator but un like Adolf Hitler, Mussolini was un able to gain complete control and was a failure. He wasn't rely trying to make the country a great and better place but instead was power hungry. Always changing his mind to try to stay in power. His only goal was to have great wealth and power. That he may in some way get back at the things in his past he hated. So that he could prove to himself that he has made something of himself. .
Also Mussolini strive fore power and success all started while he was still a kid. Mussolini was born as a peasant and because of that he held anger against the upper class and wanted to control them like thy once controlled his life His father Alessamdro Mussolini would encourage Benito to fight as a child. Because of this when Benito was attending a private boarding school at the age of 9 he would constantly get in fights with his class mates and brought before school authorities more then a couple times. He would thrive on a challenge or conflict and would always try to have the last word.
Benito was raised as a socialist, his father had greatly influenced him in his political views. Benito believed in socialism. Everywhere he went Benito would defend the socialist mantra and debate on the socialist side and also would advice to get rid of capitalism. But as he got older his views began to change because of his thrive for power.
Even though Mussolini became a dictator he knew very little of history, of economics, of socialist theory. Angelica Balabanoff, a Russian social-democrat who tought him about political theory said "I soon saw that he knew little of history, of economics, or of Socialist theory and that his mind was completely undisciplined. . . . Mussolini's radicalism and anticlericalism were more the reflection of his early environment and his own rebellious egoism than the product of understanding and conviction; his hatred of oppression was not that impersonal hared of a system shared by all revolutionaries; it sprang from his own sense of indignity and frustration, from a passion to assert his own ego and from a determination for personal revenge.
