“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to the point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism: ownership of the government by an individual, by a group or any controlling  private power.” — President Franklin D. Roosevelt on the threat to democracy by corporate power.
