Chevalier Charles Coulombe on Italian Unification

The question posed is, 'Was it good or bad?' After first pointing out that prior to unification, Italy had almost no out-migration, and immediately following it, millions of Italians emigrated, he gives the historical background of the House of Savoy's conquest of the Italian Peninsula. He comes to the conclusion that it was not a good thing.

As the video ends, Mr Frankini asks him 'Garibaldi, good or bad?' Without hesitation, the Chevalier answers, 'Bad!'

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
