Paul Robeson: I belong to the American resistance movement which fights against American imperialism, just as the resistance movement fought against Hitler. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes10/#quotenr6529

Lenin: Where the bourgeois economists saw a relation between things (the exchange of one commodity for another) Marx revealed a relation between people. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes9/#quotenr6508

Lenin: Since there can be no talk of an independent ideology formulated by the working masses themselves in the process of their movement, the only choice is — either bourgeois or socialist ideology. There is no middle course (for mankind has not created a “third” ideology, and, moreover, in a society torn by class antagonisms there can never be a non-class or an above-class ideology). Hence, to belittle the socialist ideology in any way, to turn aside from it in the slightest degree means to strengthen bourgeois ideology. There is much talk of spontaneity. But the spontaneous development of the working-class movement leads to its subordination to bourgeois ideology, to its development along the lines of the Credo programme; for the spontaneous working-class movement is trade-unionism, is Nur-Gewerkschaftlerei, and trade unionism means the ideological enslavement of the workers by the bourgeoisie. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes7/#quotenr6506

Ariel Sharon: Everybody has to move, run and grab as many (Palestinian) hilltops as they can to enlarge the (Jewish) settlements because everything we take now will stay ours...Everything we don't grab will go to them. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes2/#quotenr6491

Yizhak Shamir: (The Palestinians) would be crushed like grasshoppers ... heads smashed against the boulders and walls. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes9/#quotenr6488

Franklin D. Roosevelt: The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes8/#quotenr6467

Nikola Tesla: Einstein's relativity work is a magnificent mathematical garb which fascinates, dazzles and makes people blind to the underlying errors. The theory is like a beggar clothed in purple whom ignorant people take for a king... its exponents are brilliant men but they are metaphysicists rather than scientists. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes8/#quotenr6447

William Casey: We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes7/#quotenr6406

Fidel Castro: Condemn me. It does not matter. History will absolve me. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes6/#quotenr6385

Lenin: Against the workers the capitalists of all nations and religions are united, but they strive to divide and weaken the workers by national strife! https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes8/#quotenr6297

Justin Raimondo: Today's Conservatives Are Fascists: Torture, dictatorship, phony elections and endless war. It's fascism with a 'democratic face'. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes7/#quotenr5976

Franklin D. Roosevelt: We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace: business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering. They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes7/#quotenr5736

Karl Marx: The ideas of the ruling class are in every epoch the ruling ideas, i.e. the class which is the ruling material force of society, is at the same time its ruling intellectual force. The class which has the means of material production at its disposal, has control at the same time over the means of mental production, so that thereby, generally speaking, the ideas of those who lack the means of mental production are subject to it. The ruling ideas are nothing more than the ideal expression of the dominant material relationships, the dominant material relationships grasped as ideas; hence of the relationships which make the one class the ruling one, therefore, the ideas of its dominance. The individuals composing the ruling class possess among other things consciousness, and therefore think. Insofar, therefore, as they rule as a class and determine the extent and compass of an epoch, it is self-evident that they do this in its whole range, hence among other things rule also as thinkers, as producers of ideas, and regulate the production and distribution of the ideas of their ag...

Mao Zedong: "Don't you want to abolish state power?" Yes, we do, but not right now; we cannot do it yet. Why? Because imperialism still exists, because domestic reaction still exists, because classes still exist in our country. Our present task is to strengthen the people's state apparatus -- mainly the people's army, the people's police and the people's courts -- in order to consolidate national defence and protect the people's interests. Given this condition, China can develop steadily, under the leadership of the working class and the Communist Party, from an agricultural into an industrial country and from a new-democratic into a socialist and communist society, can abolish classes and realize the Great Harmony. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes1/#quotenr5570

Michael Parenti: It is ironic that people of modest means sometimes become conservative out of a scarcity fear bred by the very capitalist system they support. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes1/#quotenr5510

Albert Einstein: The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes2/#quotenr5381

Otto Kuusinen: The main thing that characterises the parties of the new type is their irreconcilability to capitalism. The Communists are waging an active struggle for its abolition, for a revolutionary transformation of capitalist society, for they hold that the taking of political power by the working class and the establishment, of a dictatorship of the proletariat are essential conditions for this transformation. Hence the intolerance displayed by Communists for all forms of opportunism, which in practice signifies adaptation to capitalism. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes7/#quotenr5196

Andrew Carnegie: I believe Socialism is the grandest theory ever presented, and I am sure it will someday rule the world. Then we will have attained the Millennium.… Then men will be content to work for the general welfare and share their riches with their neighbors. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes4/#quotenr5013

Stalin: National and racial chauvinism is a vestige of the misanthropic customs characteristic of the period of cannibalism. https://protestationblog.wordpress.com/quotes6/#quotenr4765
