“The whole point of corporatism: to try and remove the public from making decisions over their own fate, to limit the public arena, to control opinion, to make sure that the fundamental decisions that determine how the world is going to be run — which include production, commerce, distribution, thought, social policy, foreign policy, everything — are not in the hands of the public, but rather in the hands of highly concentrated private power. In effect, tyranny unaccountable to the public.” — Professor Noam Chomsky
“It is weakness rather than wickedness which renders men unfit to be trusted with unlimited power.” — John Adams

It operates under cover of a self-created screen and seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers, and every agency created for the public protection.” — John F. Hylan
“The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.” — Felix Frankfurter
