Seeing as how the word "Fascism" is being bandied about lately, I thought I’d add something to the mix:
“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
Think about it.
See anything like that in our country right now? Maybe, perhaps, all of the money that dominates our legislative process? Keep your eyes open, folks. ?
