Sowell on Intellectuals & Society

“Communism is socialism with an international focus and totalitarian methods. Benito Mussolini, the founder of Fascism, defined Fascism as national socialism in a state that was totalitarian, a term that he also coined. The same idea was echoed in Germany, in the name of the National Socialist German Workers’s Parth, Hitler’s party, now almost always abbreviated as Nazis, thereby burying its socialist component.” ~ Thomas Sowell
