Bernard Baruch
War Industries Board chairman.


The state is all-important.

“Every man’s life is at the call of the nation and so must be every man’s property. We are living today in a highly organized state of socialism. The state is all; the individual is of importance only as he contributes to the welfare of the state. His property is [his] only as the state does not need it. He must hold his life and his possessions at the call of the state.”
