Excerpt from Partners in Plunder: The Cost of Business Dictatorship

There has been much talk of late about the dangers of fascism in the United States. So far there has been a tendency to look for the manifestations of extreme political reaction and brutal indifference to the common weal in the wrong, or least significant, places. Many Americans would never recognize fascism in their midst unless it came in the garb of extreme anti-Semitism or Ku Kluxery and was outfitted with all the special terms and vague promises and scapegoats of the Hitler movement. The most serious and menacing manifestations of fascism are to be found in the intensification of the normal and accepted practices of conventional business, and in the sanctification of those practices by charlatans and more sober officials in government service. It has been our purpose to indicate the areas where business is at present clamping down upon consumers and workers to prevent them from striving for, or even being conscious of their rights to, higher standards of living in terms of both quantity and quality.

At the root of all the troubles which afflict the consumers of essential goods and services, lies the insistence of business that all goods and services must be subject to the chief and overriding consideration of profits. Adam Smith declared more than a hundred years ago that the only justifiable end of production is consumption. Business has made profit, not wages or salaries or consumption, the end of all production, and in so doing has grossly adulterated and catastrophically limited the supply of goods and services.
