One thing that I am sure of, and which I can answer truthfully, is that whatever the contingencies that may arise here, wherever I am there will be no Communism.
Capitalism is the exploitation of man by man; communism is the exact opposite.
Growing terrorism, permissive societies, democracy collapsing through lack of law and order. If things continue on their present track, the disintegration of Western societies will occur much sooner than you think under the hammer blows of fascism and communism. Freedom is not something that does not have a breaking point, and your enemies would like you to reach that point.muhammad reza pahlavi
For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog, while, for many people in the West, it is still a living lion.aleksandr solzhenitsyn
communism doesn't really starve or execute that many people. Mostly it just bores them to death.
The whole secret of the campaigns unleashed against Spain can be explained in two words: Masonry and communism... we have to extirpate these two evils from our land.francisco franco

For if Freedom and communism were to compete for man's allegiance in a world at peace, I would look to the future with ever increasing confidence.
Russian communism is the illegitimate child of Karl Marx and Catherine the Great.clement attlee

When he [Brezhnev] succeeded Khrushchev, he was still a vigorous politician who expected to make the Party and government work more effectively...But his General Secretaryship had turned into a ceremonial reign that had brought communism into its deepest contempt since 1917.leonid brezhnev
The real struggle is not between East and West, or capitalism and communism, but between education and propaganda.Martin Buber
If the left wing was to rule, the result would be misery, terror and death, like it happens in every place where communism rules.Silvio Berlusconi
Go and read the black book on communism and you'll find that under Mao 's China they didn't eat babies but they boiled them to fertilise the fields.Silvio Berlusconi
The irony of the post-Cold War period is that the fall of communism was followed by the rise of another utopian ideology. In American and Britain, and to a lesser extent other Western countries, a type of market fundamentalism became the guiding philosophy. The collapse of American power that is underway is the predictable upshot.john n. gray
The clock of communism has stopped striking. But its concrete building has not yet come crashing down. For that reason, instead of freeing ourselves, we must try to save ourselves from being crushed by its rubble.aleksandr solzhenitsyn
[Britons] would rather take the risk of civilizing communism than being kicked around by the unlettered pot-bellied money magnates of the United States.

[Refusing heterosexual sex:] I've never tried communism, but I know I wouldn't like that. It's the same thing. Or grits.
communism is like prohibition, it's a good idea but it won't work.will rogers
At bottom, I mean profoundly at bottom, the FBI has nothing to do with communism, it has nothing to do with catching criminals, it has nothing to do with the Mafia, the syndicate, it has nothing to do with trust-busting, it has nothing to do with interstate commerce, it has nothing to do with anything but serving as a church for the mediocre. A high church for the true mediocre.norman mailer
communism cannot be imposed by force.
communism... is the genuine resolution of the antagonism between man and nature and between man and man; it is the true resolution of the conflict between existence and essence, objectification and self-affirmation, freedom and necessity, individual and species. It is the riddle of history solved and knows itself as the solution.karl marx
Not only is Fascism (and overt military rule) the probable destiny of all Communist societies especially when their populations are moved to revolt but communism is in itself a variant, the most successful variant, of Fascism. Fascism with a human face.Susan Sontag
Hostility towards Microsoft is not difficult to find on the Net, and it blends two strains: resentful people who feel Microsoft is too powerful, and disdainful people who think it's tacky. This is all strongly reminiscent of the heyday of communism and Socialism, when the bourgeoisie were hated from both ends: by the proles, because they had all the money, and by the intelligentsia, because of their tendency to spend it on lawn ornaments. Microsoft is the very embodiment of modern high-tech prosperity it is, in a word, bourgeois and so it attracts all of the same gripes.neal stephenson
The most serious menace to Japan comes from the Soviet Union. Numerous European countries will eventually embrace communism. So will China and India if we just watch them with folded arms.
