    They had facist Italians that killed poor people and that is why they lost the war because poor people work harder than rich people and rich people burn in hell after they die.

    Yes, and there had always been gangsters. 1920s gangsters were particularly glamorised because they were associated with the prohibition (banning of alcohol), which became a generational conflict between the flappers and the older, more traditional people.
