A BOOK BY JOSEPH W. BURRELL: Work is for the People. Algora Publishing. Excerpt: “I think that corporatism is identical to fascism. This is a matter of simple definition. Benito Mussolini established the first fascist party in 1919 and ruled Italy under it from 1922 until near the end of World War II when he was killed by his own people. When asked what fascism was, he said, ‘Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state power and corporate power.’ Thus, I make what seems to me a perfectly logical connection between corporatism and the Republican Party. As far as I know, no one else has made this claim or agrees with it. Nevertheless, it seems absolutely obvious to me that the Republican Party is fanatically devoted to corporatism and almost violently hostile to working people and their unions. To me at least, the Republican Party is the American Fascist Party.” Available at www.algora.com, www.barnesandnoble.com, and www.amazon.com.
