Protestation (Quotes)
John Stockwell: Since 1954, however, we have not parachuted teams into the Soviet Union - our number one enemy - to destabilize that country... Neither do we run these violent operations in England, France, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, or Switzerland. Since the mid-1950s they have all been conducted in Third World countries where governments do not have the power to force the United States to stop its brutal and destabilizing campaigns. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8431
Protestation (Quotes)
Karl Marx: All Socialists are agreed that the political state, and with it political authority, will disappear as a result of the coming social revolution, that is, that public functions will lose their political character and will be transformed into the simple administrative functions of watching over the true interests of society. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8482

Protestation (Quotes)
Lenin: Pre-Marxist socialism has been defeated. It is continuing the struggle, no longer on its own independent ground, but on the general ground of Marxism, as revisionism. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8477

Lenin was a cunt!
Protestation (Quotes)
James Connolly: In our day and generation there is only one class which can be depended upon for consistent revolutionary action. That class is the working class. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8459

Protestation (Quotes)
James Connolly: A revolution will only be achieved when the ordinary people of the world, us, the working class, get up off our knees and take back what is rightfully ours. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8458

Michael Parenti: Official Washington cannot tell the American people that the real purpose of its gargantuan military expenditures and belligerent interventions is to make the world safe for General Motors, General Electric, General Dynamics, and all the other generals. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8456

Protestation (Quotes)
R. Palme Dutt: In essence, Marxism and Marxist notions need to evolve with the development of historical conditions. It is on the basis of Marxist methodology that Marxism evolves. In the conditions of the last stage of capitalism, imperialism, Marxism becomes Marxism-Leninism. Refuting Leninism is tantamount to decrying Marxism, as anti-Leninism is rendered a form of anti-Marxism. Marxism to- day cannot be understood without Lenin's contribution to Marxism. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8441
Protestation (Quotes)
R. Palme Dutt: The British ruling class are not fighting to liberate the people of Europe from fascism and reaction. They have always been, for a century and a-half, the main stranglers of every popular revolution in every country. The war aims of Churchill, for which the British workers; are asked to die, are the war aims of British imperialism; to protect and maintain the domination of the British Empire over a-quarter of the world; to smash the rival German imperialism and inflict a new super-Versailles; to maintain the reactionary interests of capitalist class rule against the world Socialist Revolution. There is nothing they fear more than a real popular revolution in Europe, which they know would lead to the victory of Socialism. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8444
Protestation (Quotes)
Lenin: There can be no real and effective "freedom" in a society based on the power of money, in a society in which the masses of working people live in poverty and the handful of rich live like parasites. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8454
Protestation (Quotes)
Friedrich Engels: Nothing is eternal but eternally changing, eternally moving matter and the laws according to which it moves and changes. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8455
Protestation (Quotes)
Helen Keller: The few own the many because they possess the means of livelihood of all ... The country is governed for the richest, for the corporations, the bankers, the land speculators, and for the exploiters of labor. The majority of mankind are working people. So long as their fair demands - the ownership and control of their livelihoods - are set at naught, we can have neither men's rights nor women's rights. The majority of mankind is ground down by industrial oppression in order that the small remnant may live in ease. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8457

Protestation (Quotes)
Heinrich Himmler: Thereby I state that we are extremely interested in not letting eastern nations unite. On the contrary, we must spit them into small groups and branches. As for separate nations, we are not going to allow them to get closer and bigger, let alone allowing them to cultivate the sense of national identity and culture. Quite the contrary, we are concerned with splintering them into numerous small groups... https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8464
Protestation (Quotes)
Lenin: Marxism differs from all primitive forms of socialism by not binding the movement to any one particular form of struggle. It recognises the most varied forms of struggle; and it does not "concoct" them, but only generalises, organises, gives conscious expression to those forms of struggle of the revolutionary classes which arise of themselves in the course of the movement. Absolutely hostile to all abstract formulas and to all doctrinaire recipes, Marxism demands an attentive attitude to the mass struggle in progress, which, as the movement develops, as the class-consciousness of the masses grows, as economic and political crises become acute, continually gives rise to new and more varied methods of defence and attack. Marxism, therefore, positively does not reject any form of struggle. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8467

James Connolly: Apostles of Freedom are ever idolised when dead, but crucified when living. Universally true as this statement is, it applies with more than usual point to the revolutionary hero. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8472
Protestation (Quotes)
Lenin: There is a Latin tag cui prodest? meaning "who stands to gain?" When it is not immediately apparent which political or social groups, forces or alignments advocate certain proposals, measures, etc., one should always ask: "Who stands to gain?" It is not important who directly advocates a particular policy, since under the present noble system of capitalism any money-bag can always "hire", buy or enlist any number of lawyers, writers and even parliamentary deputies, professors, parsons and the like to defend any views. We live in an age of commerce, when the bourgeoisie have no scruples about trading in honour or conscience. There are also simpletons who out of stupidity or by force of habit defend views prevalent in certain bourgeois circles. Yes, indeed! In politics it is not so important who directly advocates particular views. What is important is who stands to gain from these views, proposals, measures. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8475
Protestation (Quotes)
Karl Marx: A revolution is certainly the most authoritarian thing there is; it is the act whereby one part of the population imposes its will upon the other part by means of rifles, bayonets and cannon - authoritarian means, if such there be at all; and if the victorious party does not want to have fought in vain, it must maintain this rule by means of the terror which its arms inspire in the reactionists. Would the Paris Commune have lasted a single day if it had not made use of this authority of the armed people against the bourgeois? Should we not, on the contrary, reproach it for not having used it freely enough? Therefore, either one of two things: either the anti-authoritarians don't know what they're talking about, in which case they are creating nothing but confusion; or they do know, and in that case they are betraying the movement of the proletariat. In either case they serve the reaction. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8478

Protestation (Quotes)
Stalin: Yet the Second World War began not as a war with the U.S.S.R., but as a war between capitalist countries. Why? Firstly, because war with the U.S.S.R., as a socialist land, is more dangerous to capitalism than war between capitalist countries; for whereas war between capitalist countries puts in question only the supremacy of certain capitalist countries over others, war with the U.S.S.R. must certainly put in question the existence of capitalism itself. Secondly, because the capitalists, although they clamour, for "propaganda" purposes, about the aggressiveness of the Soviet Union, do not themselves believe that it is aggressive, because they are aware of the Soviet Union's peaceful policy and know that it will not itself attack capitalist countries. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8481
Protestation (Quotes)
Lenin: The traitors, blockheads and pedants of the Second International could never understand such dialectics; the proletariat cannot achieve victory if it does not win the majority of the population to its side. But to limit that winning to polling a majority of votes in an election under the rule of the bourgeoisie, or to make it the condition for it, is crass stupidity, or else sheer deception of the workers. In order to win the majority of the population to its side the proletariat must, in the first p]ace, overthrow the bourgeoisie and seize state power; secondly, it must introduce Soviet power and complete]y smash the old state apparatus, whereby it immediately undermines the rule, prestige and influence of the bourgeoisie and petty-bourgeois compromisers over the non-proletarian working people. Thirdly, it must entirely destroy the influence of the bourgeoisie and petty-bourgeois compromisers over the majority of the non-proletarian masses by satisfying their economic needs in a revolutionary way at the expense of the exploiters. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8487
Protestation (Quotes)
Stalin: Earlier, the bourgeoisie, as the heads of nations, were for the rights and independence of nations and put that "above all." Now there is no trace left of this "national principle." Now the bourgeoisie sell the rights and independence of their nations for dollars. The banner of national independence and national sovereignty has been thrown overboard. Without doubt, you, the representatives of the communist and democratic parties must raise this banner and carry it forward if you want to be patriots of your countries, if you want to be the leading powers of the nations. There is nobody else to raise it. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8488

Protestation (Quotes)
Lenin: During the lifetime of great revolutionaries, the oppressing classes constantly hounded them, received their theories with the most savage malice, the most furious hatred and the most unscrupulous campaigns of lies and slander. After their death, attempts are made to convert them into harmless icons, to canonize them, so to say, and to hallow their names to a certain extent for the "consolation" of the oppressed classes and with the object of duping the latter, while at the same time robbing the revolutionary theory of its substance, blunting its revolutionary edge and vulgarizing it. Today, the bourgeoisie and the opportunists within the labor movement concur in this doctoring of Marxism. They omit, obscure, or distort the revolutionary side of this theory, its revolutionary soul. They push to the foreground and extol what is or seems acceptable to the bourgeoisie. All the social-chauvinists are now "Marxists" (don't laugh!). https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8489
Protestation (Quotes)
Denis Nowell Pritt: What are the Communists? Our capitalist Press and propaganda has for so many years built up a "Communist bogey" that for most non-political people a Communist is a mythical monstrosity. He is either just a man who is born lazy, or an agitator paid by foreign gold, who is remarkably successful in persuading honest and intelligent workers to strike for no reason; he is in any case anti-social and unpatriotic. The real truth is very different; the Communists in every country have numbered in their ranks some of the most highly skilled and conscientious workers, scientists, teachers, and writers; they are on the whole well informed and read The Times and the Financial News assiduously! They spend a good part of their leisure in mastering the intricacies of Marxist philosophy, in studying and seeking to improve social conditions, and in Trade Union and political activities. They include people of wide general culture and lively intellect. And above all, they are international in their outlook, sympathy, and philosophy. All the gangsters and fools who were welcomed into the Nazi party are assiduously excluded from the Communist ranks. Their professional politicians live on limited salaries and must maintain a high standard of personal conduct; (this rule is particularly strict in the Soviet Union). For a practical example of the difference between a Communist and a Nazi, one may recall the superb contrast of Dimitrov and Goering during the course of the Reichstag Fire Trial in 1933. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8490

Protestation (Quotes)
Gramsci: Above all, the worker must resolutely reject any solidarity with a bourgeois newspaper. And he must always, always, always remember that the bourgeois newspaper (whatever its hue) is an instrument of struggle motivated by ideas and interests that are contrary to his. Everything that is published is influenced by one idea: that of serving the dominant class, and which is ineluctably translated into a fact: that of combating the laboring class. And in fact, from the first to the last line the bourgeois newspaper smells of and reveals this preoccupation. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8493

Protestation (Quotes)
Ulrike Meinhof: If you throw a stone, it's a crime. If a thousand stones are thrown, that's political. If you set fire to a car it's a crime; if a hundred cars are set on fire that's political. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8514
Protestation (Quotes)
Albert Einstein: Your ancestors dragged these black people from their homes by force; and in the white man's quest for wealth and an easy life they have been ruthlessly suppressed and exploited, degraded into slavery. The modern prejudice against Negroes is the result of the desire to maintain this unworthy condition. https://personaljournal.ca/protestation/quotes#quote8519
