“THIS IS the definition of nationalization… and we’re not doing that.”
True enough, Ben. What you’re doing is fascistic — where the government doesn’t actually assume ownership of the means of production, but nevertheless tells the owners what they may and may not do with their property.
Not nationalization. That’s socialism. Fascism.
We’ve fought wars to defend liberty against fascism. And now we find it like a snake in the grass on our own front lawn. Despicable.
