Progressivism = Liberal Fascism

By John Sykes

Liberal Fascism: 
A term, that contrary to popular belief did not originate from Jonah Goldberg, but from author H.G. Wells. In a speech to the Young Liberals at Oxford in July 1932, Wells called for progressives to become 'Liberal Fascists' or 'Enlightened Nazis.' Wells though that a new world order was the solution, a liberal fascism...in boils down to: the state is the solution.
Jonah Goldberg Quotes:
“If there is ever a fascist takeover in America, it will come not in the form of storm troopers kicking down doors but with lawyers and social workers saying "I'm from the government and I'm here to help.” 
“The government cannot love you, and any politics that works on a different assumption is destined for no good.” 
“America's political system used to be about the pursuit of happiness. Now More and more of us want to stop chasing it and have it delivered.” 
“If you think shrinking government and getting it less involved in your life is a hallmark of tyranny it is only because you are either grotesquely ignorant or because you subscribe to a statist ideology that believes the expansion of the state is the expansion of liberty.”
