Intro to Thomas Sowell's Article
In the late 1980s political author and Insider, admitted Marxist, one-world government promoter, trustee and founder of the Trilateral Commission, and Council on Foreign Relations member Zbigniew Brzezinski stated in his powerful book, "The Grand Failure," that, "In fact Communism, Fascism, and Nazism are genetically related, historically linked, and politically quite similar."
Though Benito Mussolini did not invent Fascism, he did explain it to the world: "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism, because it is the merger of state and corporate power."
Bill Clinton was the first president to state openly a fascist policy: "Government and business must create a partnership, one that will benefit all."
That Barack Obama is a Fascist/Socialist/Marxist is a cinch. What makes him moreso than his predecessors is the fact that he has thrust state power to a much greater degree than they did and, if reelected we cannot imagine the cramping horrors he'll place on our freedoms.
We had for many years an open example of the fascist/socialist model with the Old ATT before the Reagan Justice Department managed to split it apart back in 1983. No one could compete with ATT and for eighty years innovation was non-existent. No choice! No freedom!
Thirty years after ATT split into the Seven Baby Bells look at the choices you have with your phones-choice is freedom-and look at the innovation brought about mainly by that split.
Both fascism and socialism stagnate innovation and freedom. Or, more plainly, government prevents innovation and restricts freedom-on top of that, government picks favorites by rewarding political friends and punishing its opponents. Look at Obama's failed Green Agenda-billions tossed to cronies of the Dumborat Party with zero regard for the financial or business results. All those monies-belonging to the American citizens-have been no more than payoffs and bribes to Obama's leftist backers.
Of the labyrinth of laws and bills passed by that Beast in Washington since George "Papa" Bush took office in 1988, not one of them has aided freedom or innovation that I know of-except for two: the Freedom of Supplementation Act and the IRS Reform Bill, both passed in the late 1990s. The rest of the lot have pinned down innovation, added to the burden of living life, and stolen numerous freedoms previously taken for granted.
Neither Thomas Sowell nor anyone else can fully explain the future devastation to our freedoms if Barack Obama continues pushing us down the path we are now headed.
No matter what the Left tries to tell us, government does not give anything away, because it has nothing to give away. It must steal from someone else-American citizens-to give out "free" healthcare, unemployment benefits, and all other transfer payments.
That is what Fascism/Socialism/Marxism is about, and Obama can factually be called any one of the three-or all.
