Quote of the Day - Henry Wallace on Fascism - 1

Buzzflash today linked to a Thom Hartmann article of July 19, "The Ghost of Vice President Wallace Warns: "It Can Happen Here." Hartmann's piece is certainly worth reading, but the underlying document, an article written in 1944 by Roosevelt's Vice President Henry A. Wallace for the NY Times, does not really need explication.

With that in mind, I'm going to "serialize" Wallace's article as the Quote of the Day.

A fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends. The supreme god of a fascist, to which his ends are directed, may be money or power; may be a race or a class; may be a military, clique or an economic group; or may be a culture, religion, or a political party.
