On Corporate Power

-- by Dave Johnson

"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power."
- - Franklin D.Roosevelt

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."
- - Benito Mussolini
