Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini was an aggressive and boisterous politician, and these tendencies were common early on in his life. At the age of ten, he was expelled from his boarding school, for what reason?

Answer: Stabbing another student in the hand. Obviously he didn’t learn his lesson, and was therefore by definition a recidivist, as Mussolini was involved in another stabbing incident at his next school.
