On some of Greensboro's 1%

“their insatiable greed for money and the power which money gives,
do not hesitate surreptitiously to evade the laws
designed to safeguard the public from monopolistic extortion.

Their final objective toward which all their deceit
is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state
and the power of the market simultaneously,
they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.

.They follow power and the dollar wherever they may lead.”

Henry A. Wallace
“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....

Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism
because it is a merger of state and corporate power”

Benito Mussolini
“Fascism is actually the work of the synergistic effort of big government and big corporations
working together to stifle the people.

And that's what we have in America today.”
