"American capitalism has helped finance the communist take over of the world. Somebody is going to answer to God for this."
I am not a Communist and neither is the revolutionary movement, but we do not have to say that we are anticommunists just to fawn on foreign powers.fidel castro
While I cannot take time off to name all the men in the State Department whohavebeennamedasmembers of the Communist Party and members of a spy ring, I have here in my hand a list of 205 that were known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party, and who nevertheless are still working and shaping the policy of the State Department.Joseph McCarthy
A test case of US capacity to help a nation meet a Communist 'war of liberation'.
My whole life so far, my whole experience has been that our failure has been not to love enough. This conviction brought me to a rejection of the radical movement after my early membership in the Socialist Party, the Industrial Workers of the World, and the Communist affiliates I worked with.dorothy day
In contrast to the asexual chasteness of official Communist art , Nazi art is both prurient and idealizing. A utopian aesthetics (physical perfection; identity as a biological given) implies an ideal eroticism: sexuality converted into the magnetism of leaders and the joy of followers. The fascist ideal is to transform sexual energy into a "spiritual" force, for the benefit of the community.Susan Sontag
The Catholic and the Communist are alike in assuming that an opponent cannot be both honest and intelligent.
Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist Party?
My son is 22 years old. If he had not become a Communist at 22, I would have disowned him. If he is still a Communist at 30, I will do it then.Georges Clemenceau
Cockburn’s personal history links him to the politics of the Communist Party, and there are still moments in his writing – debating the number of people estimated to have perished in Stalin’s gulags, claiming that ‘the Brezhnev years were a Golden Age for the Soviet working class’, when aspects of his father’s convictions can be glimpsed.alexander cockburn
"one of my soldiers can handle three Communist soldiers"ma hongkui
Simon Wiesenthal told me that any political party in a democracy that uses the word 'freedom' in its name is either Nazi or Communist.Robert D. Kaplan
I have seen Christians in Communist prisons with fifty pounds of chains on their feet, tortured with red-hot iron pokers, in whose throats spoonfuls of salt had been forced, being kept afterward without water, starving, whipped, suffering from cold--and praying with fervor for the Communists. This is humanly inexplicable! It is the love of Christ, which was poured out in our hearts.richard wurmbrand
We start from different ideological positions. For you to be a Communist or a Socialist is to be totalitarian; for me no.… On the contrary, I think Socialism frees man.salvador allende
Allende is seeking the totality of power, which means Communist tyranny disguised as the dictatorship of the proletariat.salvador allende
When I feed the hungry, they call me a saint. When I ask why people are hungry, they call me a Communist .
Every Communist must grasp the truth: Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.Mao Tse-tung
[Barack] Obama is a radical Communist and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it is coming true. He is going to destroy this country and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist.alan keyes
The democratic world has come to a dead end; likewise, the Communist world has come to a dead end. But the Unification Church is just beginning!sun myung moon
But my knowledge of Marxism was limited to knowing that Marx was a Jew, and that he had a long white beard. I said to Lunatcharsky (the political Communist commissar for Education, 1918) ‘Whatever you do, don’t ask me why I painted in blue or green, and why you can see a calf inside the cow’s belly, etc. On the other hand you’re welcome: if Marx is so wise, let him come back to life and explain it himself’. I showed him my canvases.marc chagall
It remains to be seen, for example whether China can continue to develop as a market economy while still retaining an authoritarian Communist political system.peter dicken
I believe that we have to strive for a transition to a socialist society … all the way to communism. I mean I think we should, uh, I think we should all study what the word means and I believe that if everyone knew what the word meant we would all be on our knees praying that we would, as soon as possible, be able to live under, uh, within a Communist structure.jane fonda
There is today hardly any country in the world outside the Communist bloc which does not have a mixed economy. In fact, even countries which call themselves socialist would object to theirs not being described as a mixed economy, for it would imply that it was a totalitarian one, while countries like Germany or Japan, usually thought of as having typically free enterprise economies, would do the same; for, otherwise, it would imply that theirs was a nineteenth century laissez-faire economy.j. r. d. tata
The revolutionary movement which began in 1789 in the Cercle Social, which in the middle of its course had as its chief representatives Leclerc and Roux, and which finally with Babeuf's conspiracy was temporarily defeated, gave rise to the Communist idea which Babeuf's friend Buonarroti re-introduced in France after the Revolution of 1830. This idea, consistently developed, is the idea of the new world order.
