"Fascist ethics begin ... with the acknowledgment that it is not the individual who confers a meaning upon society, but it is, instead, the existence of a human society which determines the human character of the individual. According to Fascism, a true, a great spiritual life cannot take place unless the State has risen to a position of pre-eminence in the world of man. The curtailment of liberty thus becomes justified at once, and this need of rising the State to its rightful position."
"The Philosophy of Fascism" 1936

Reader comments about this quote:
And it is happening in the halls of power while we wait in line for the new Iphone or watch sports on TV thinking it will all change if only we vote for the right person. It won't. It's been going on to greater and lesser degrees in every administration since Wilson. This is exactly why democracy is a sham. Restore the Republic.

    Not sure how to rate, 5 stars for accuracy, thumbs down in support of it. How far will the American people allow themselves to become the new Nazis? Aren't we being subjected to the same kind of propaganda? Are we not being told that we must bomb Muslim people because they "hate us for our freedom" and/or wish to kill all non-muslims? We now have the Dept of 'Homeland' Security (why don't we say Fatherland and get it over with), and the right of habeas corpus was lost back in 2001. Executive orders bypass the Congress and grant the President power over all CIVIL (not just public) properties AND LABORS. We are setting ourselves up for a big fall, people. Just know that FASCISM under the thumb of the money creators (central banking cartels/families) is the form of government being strengthened in the US, not a republican form of government that recognizes the power of the individual as PRIMARY and the root of all collective power from the county, to the state, and to the nation.
