leftists' favorite quote

Leftists love to repeat Mussolini's famous saying: "Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." Over at the Volokh Conspiracy, Juan Non-Volokh points out that this doesn't quite mean what the left-wing moonbats think it does. Quoting VC reader Steven Hamori:
The problem is that a 'corporate' in Italian of the period is not a business organization. A corporate is a production planning board made up of workers, owners, and others involved in production advocated by the syndicalist school of socialism. Their beloved quote is actually Mussolini ... making a connection between fascism and socialism.
