government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling power.
Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is

\"Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.\" -Mussolini
\"The only difference between Bush and Gore is the velocity with which their knees hit the floor when corporations knock at the door.\"

Salvador\' and `played a critical role in helping the Salvadorean
military grow ... to a counterinsurgency force of 55,000 men under arms\'."
