Karl Marx

“My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism.”

“Take away a nation’s heritage and the people are easily persuaded.”

“Remove one freedom per generation and soon you will have no freedom—and no one would have noticed.”

“The goal of socialism is communism.”

“The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property.”   

“In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor,

and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished;

after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual,

after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want;

and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly

—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!


Vladimir Lenin

“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”  

“Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism.”

“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”

“The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.”


Joseph Stalin

“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: Its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

“By May 1, 1937, there should not be one single church left within the borders of Soviet Russia, and the idea of God will have been banished from the Soviet Union as a remnant of the Middle Ages, which has been used for the purpose of oppressing the working classes.”

“Divide the world into regional groups as a transitional stage to world government. Populations will more readily abandon their national loyalty to a vague regional loyalty than they will for a world authority. Later the regions can be brought together all the way into a single world dictatorship.”


Adolph Hitler

“He alone, who owns the youth, owns the future.

“When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already . . . What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”

To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.”


Joseph Goebbels

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.

It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”  

“What does Christianity mean today? National Socialism is a religion. All we lack is a religious genius capable of uprooting outmoded religious practices and putting new ones in their place.

We lack traditions and ritual. One day soon National Socialism will be the religion of all Germans. My party is my church, and I believe I serve the Lord best if I do his will, and liberate my oppressed people from the fetters of slavery. That is my gospel.”

“The war we are fighting until victory or the bitter end is in its deepest sense a war between Christ and Marx. Christ: the principle of love. Marx: the principle of hate.”

“Whoever can conquer the street will one day conquer the state, for every form of power politics and any dictatorship-run state has its roots in the street.”


Antonio Gramsci

“Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. . . . In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society.

“What comes to pass does so, not so much because people want it to happen, as because the mass of citizens abdicate their responsibility and let things be.”


John Dewey

“Schools should take an active part in directing social change, and share in the construction of a new social order.”

“Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming where everyone is interdependent.”

“Independent self-reliant people would be a counterproductive anachronism in the collective society of the future where people will be defined by their associations.”

“There is no god and there is no soul. Hence, there is no need for the props of traditional religion. With dogma and creed excluded, the immutable truth is dead and buried. There is no room for fixed or natural law or permanent moral absolutes.”


Norman M. Thomas

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name Liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program until America will one day be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened.”


Nikita Krushev

“Your children’s children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept Communism outright; but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you; WE’LL SO WEAKEN YOUR ECONOMY, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”


Saul Alinski

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

“Accuse your opponent of what you are doing, to create confusion and inoculate voters against evidence of your guilt.”
