-- Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
"Unless you become more watchful in your States and check this spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges you will in the end find that the most important powers of Government have been given or bartered away, and the control of your dearest interests have been passed into the hands of these corporations."
-- President Andrew Jackson
"The people who own the country ought to govern it."
-- First Chief Justice John Jay
"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence, is Fascism-ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power."
-- President Franklin D. Roosevelt
"Law! What do I care about the law? Ain't I got the power?"
-- Cornelius Vanderbilt
