"We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both." ~Justice Louis Brandeis~
"Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone." ~John Maynard Keynes~
"We grudge no man a fortune which represents his own power and sagacity, when exercised with entire regard to the welfare of his fellows.... So it is with us. We grudge no man a fortune in civil life if it is honorably obtained and well used. It is not even enough that it should have gained without doing damage to the community. We should permit it to be gained only so long as the gaining represents benefit to the community. This, I know, implies a policy of a far more active governmental interference with social and economic conditions in this country than we have yet had, but I think we have got to face the fact that such an increase in governmental control is now necessary." ~Teddy
"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." ~JFK~
