Quotes on Communism

December 21, 2010

Here are some interesting historical and contemporary quotes on Communism.

1. “But democracy is by no means a limit one may not overstep; it is only one of the stages in the course of development from feudalism to capitalism, and from capitalism to Communism.” – V.I. Lenin, State and Revolution (1917), p.82.

2. “For the complete extinction of the state, complete Communism is necessary.” – V.I. Lenin, State and Revolution (1917), p.78.

3. “Peace is inevitable. War will not help us reach our goal – it will spoil it. We must rest on the position of coexistence and non-intervention, and eventually Communism will be in force all over the earth.”          – Nikita S. Khrushchev, Conquest Without War, p.58 (comment made in 1960).

4. “Soviet foreign policy and foreign propaganda efforts continue to be linked to the objectives of fostering and accelerating world-wide social revolution.” – Frederick C. Barghoorn, Soviet Foreign Propaganda (1964), p.43-44.

5. “In October 1917 we departed the old world and irreversibly rejected it. We are traveling to a new world, the world of communism. We shall never deviate from this path.” – Mikhail Gorbachev, Nov. 2, 1987, as quoted by Tugwell, Peace with Freedom, p.214.

6. “The Cold War may be ‘over’ for the West. For the Soviets it has entered a new, active and promising phase.” – Anatoliy Golitsyn, The Perestroika Deception, p.127 (statement made in 1990).

7. “…the West’s main weakness remains unchanged: it cannot grasp the fact that it is facing an acceleration in the unfolding of Soviet convergence strategy which is intended to procure the subservience of the West to Moscow under an ultimate Communist World Government.” – Anatoliy Golitsyn, The Perestroika Deception, p.143 (statement made in 1991).

8. “The time has come to develop integrated global politics.” – Mikhail Gorbachev, In Search for a New Beginning (1995), p.26.

9. “New approaches are needed, new orientations in both thought and action. We must make the transition to a new civilization… We are talking of a transition toward a new civilization… I am convinced that a new civilization will inevitably take on certain features that are characteristic of, or inherent in, the socialist ideal.” – Mikhail Gorbachev, On My Country and the World (2000), p.73-74.

    Happy New Year to you and your family! Am re-reading an old book called Pawns in the Game by William Guy Carr. Am amazed how it now makes so much more sense in these present days.
