"We must especially beware of that small group of selfish men who would clip the wings of the American eagle in order to feather their own nests."
-- President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" speech. January 6, 1941 State of the Union address. Listen to audio (10 minutes 13 seconds in). Text.

"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 Delano Roosevelt. April 29, 1938. Message to Congress. [209] [210] [211].
