Every movement that seeks to enslave a country, every dictatorship or
potential dictatorship, needs some minority group as a scapegoat
which it can blame for the nation's troubles and use as a
justification of its own demand for dictatorial powers. In
Soviet Russia, the scapegoat was the bourgeoisie; in Nazi Germany,
it was the Jewish people; in America, it is the businessmen.
