Chapter 1: World at a tipping point
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.
