When did fascism start in the US?
« on: January 30, 2019, 12:55:24 PM »
"Rutherford Birchard Hayes, 19th President of the United States wrote:

The real difficulty is with the vast wealth and power in the hands of the few and the unscrupulous who represent or control capital. Hundreds of laws of Congress and the state legislatures are in the interest of these men and against the interests of workingmen. These need to be exposed and repealed. All laws on corporations, on taxation, on trusts, wills, descent, and the like, need examination and extensive change. This is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people no longer. It is a government of corporations, by corporations, and for corporations. -- How is this? - Diary (11 March 1888)"

And this was a Republican corruption.  Of course back then the Democrats were setting up Jim Crow ;-(

the ultra-rich familiea who possess much of the wealth of the world, bring their prosperity from the past. Nothing has changed so far since 1881.

now that money is not a problem. the nobles have begun seeking new pursues. supervising the humans' destiny. as you say Baruch, they think they know better what is better for the common population.

"Those who the gods would destroy, they first make mad" ... this is always true of those who practice the seven cardinal sins.  Particularly pride=hubris.

Hitler - I can't lose.

Tojo - I can't lose.

Stalin - I can't lose.

Mussolini - I can't lose.

FDR & Churchill ... we can lose, and will, unless we are very careful.

Quote
As a matter of personal conviction, and without pretending to discuss the details or formulate the system, I feel that we shall ultimately have to consider the adoption of some such scheme as that of a progressive tax on all fortunes, beyond a certain amount, either given in life or devised or bequeathed upon death to any individual – a tax so framed as to put it out of the power of the owner of one of these enormous fortunes to hand on more than a certain amount to any one individual; the tax of course, to be imposed by the national and not the state government. Such taxation should, of course, be aimed merely at the inheritance or transmission in their entirety of those fortunes swollen beyond all healthy limits.
– Theodore Roosevelt   1906
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

-- H. L. Mencken
