"What, actually, is the difference between communism and fascism? Both are forms of statism, authoritarianism. The only difference between Stalin’s communism and Mussolini’s fascism is an insignificant detail in organizational structure."
Leonard E. Read
(1898-1983) founder of the Foundation for Economic Education

Reader comments about this quote:
Communism owns everything in the name of the specific inorganic phantasm with organizational structure being recognized as the whole. Corporatism, or most descriptively in Italian: "Fascism" owns everything through an organizational structure of title bifurcation (titled elements of the whole are allowed certain privilege to operate in a name outside the inorganic phantasm's; while, the inorganic phantasm owns in allodium everything)

    A Mell of a Hess. when people Wake Up and find themselves but slaves to the state. Some know fascism pays dividends just like monopoly capitalism. Seems the democrats are bent on being Marxist with an emphasis on violent class conflicts, fighting over the legal plunder/scraps that fall from the states table.

    To figure out what "-ism" is being practiced, one need only to follow the flow of money. The structure that forms supports the flow of power to the rulers (they know who they are) while loading the common people with obligations and perpetual indentured servitude to church and/or state both under the ruler's command. It comes in many forms and flavors for the culture of the day, but always assumes power over all in the name of whatever deity the masses hold dearest to them. The devil cites scripture for his own purposes...
