„For Fascism is a lie told by bullies.“

Address, American Writers Congress, New York City (1937). Reprinted in New Masses (June 22, 1937)
Contexto: 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.
