Man: Sir, I love the line, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself", But I think I'd remove 'and clowns.'"
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Translation: “Don’t concern your little heads when we take the nation suddenly toward a fascist-style socialism via the National Recovery Act. Or when we attack the independence of the Supreme Court with the threat to pack them with our kind of people. Or when we grant recognition to the Soviet Union and have their embassy become the headquarters for several hundred spies. Yes, you have nothing to fear because I’m in charge.”
