"We forget that our policies, our way of life, our capitalistic system, our civic rights are more revolutionary than communism ever was or ever will be. As modern capitalists we are in the vanguard of progress. It will be of little comfort to us or to the poor if we fail to sell the American public that the preservation of a strong, profitable steel industry is indispensable to the continuation of personal freedom for our citizenry at large and to the prosperity of the 300 communities in which steel operates throughout the land."
