Fascism is the union of government with private business against the People.
"To The States, or any one of them, or to any city of The States: Resist much, Obey little; Once unquestioning obedience, at once fully enslaved; Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city, ever afterward resumes its liberty." from "Caution" by Walt Whitman

Pollution and profit

They hate the country so much, they would destroy it for a few hundred dollars in dividends to individual foreign investors...

Step 1) Seize and/or usurp a vital part of the Public Commons (resources like water, public land, seed stocks and other life forms, education, medical care, our very government, our roads and bridges, electricity generation and the power grid, methane gas, oil, minerals, our broadcast spectrum, telecom infrastructure, the internet).
Step 2) Restrict public access to these vital resources, and extort largess from the nation's people who already own them all by birthright, even while hiding and externalizing the costs and unfavorable impacts associated with the use, sale and/or destruction of Public Commons elements.

From "US Uncut" [www.facebook.com/usauncut], 2014-05-01:
Duke Energy dumped 82,000 tons of coal ash into North Carolina's Dan River and claim they can't afford to clean it up. Now they're spending millions to kill rooftop solar.
