AMF on Businessmen and Society

[Commander Rockwell] said that a National Socialist is someone who wants to save his race. A Conservative is someone who wants to save his money…America as we know it was created largely by conservatives, who by virtue of their racial and cultural heritage had the mental and spiritual wherewithal to do so. The result is that this country is a plutocracy, and so it always has been. That is what is going to change, Lodge. I know you don’t believe this, but we’re going to strip you of what you have and give it back to the people who created that wealth. Society will be reduced once more to its organic components, the worker, the artisan, the soldier, the homemaker and the farmer. The businessman as a factor in politics and the civic order will disappear. You want to let us go, Lodge. Believe me, you want to let us go. I just wonder how long it’s going to take you to figure that out.

--“A Mighty Fortress”, pg 344-345
