„For Fascism is a lie told by bullies.“

—  Ernest Hemingway American author and journalist 1899 - 1961
Context: There is only one form of government that cannot produce good writers, and that system is Fascism. For Fascism is a lie told by bullies. A writer who will not lie cannot live or work under Fascism. Because Fascism is a lie, it is condemned to literary sterility. And when it is past, it will have no history, except the bloody history of murder. Address, American Writers Congress, New York City (1937). Reprinted in New Masses (June 22, 1937)
