      FDR:

      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.

Taking on corporate power is an amazingly tough task, but there's simply no alternative if we want a decent country.
