"Having grown up at a time when ranting maniacs dispatched their
fanatical followers to stamp out freedom and human decency, I am,
unfortunately, quite familiar with the pattern.

Even so, the struggle to shape the future is far from over.  During my
lifetime, I have seen powerful movements wage successful fights for
racial justice, women’s rights, and economic equality.  I have seen
massive campaigns successfully challenge wars and nuclear insanity.  I
have seen the emergence of inspiring political leaders who have toppled
dictatorships against incredible odds.  Perhaps most important, I have
seen millions of people, in the United States and around the globe, turn
the tide against fascism when, some eight decades ago, it threatened to
engulf the world.

Let’s hope they can do it again."

Via Whuffo, who wrote "It’s the final stage of capitalism as it
degenerates. Many will say “It can’t happen here” while ignoring the
changes around them." and Jennifer Freeman.
