Quote of the Day: On socialism v fascism

 

"Both Communists and Fascists describe themselves as socialists, since unlimited power over the economy entails unlimited power over everything, and vice versa. Socialism, however, is a narrow term, referring primarily to economics. The broader term, which covers the state’s power over everything, is totalitarianism."
~ Leonard Peikoff, from his book The DIM Hypothesis
