In the next ten years we will have to continue to make changes which will make the whole of this country a genuinely classless society.— John Major
Terrific Classless Society quotations
The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.
By 'socialism' I mean a classless society in which the State has disappeared, production is cooperative, and no man has political or economic power over another. The touchstone would be the extent to which each individual could develop his own talents and personality.
The masters thought they were loved until one day one of their favorites farted loudly while serving dinner and the next day was gone. The very first manifestation of the classless society is the disappearance of the servant class.
Dont look for society to give you permission to be yourself.
It is one of history's ironies that Communism, advertised as a classless society, tended to breed a privileged class of feudal proportions.
The class struggle necessarily leads to the dictatorship of the proletariat.
With all of its false assumptions and evil methods, communism grew as a protest against the hardships of the underprivileged. Communism in theory emphasized a classless society, and a concern for social justice, though the world knows from sad experience that in practice it created new classes and a new lexicon of injustice.
Society is not only defined by what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy.
Classless society is the dream of people with no class.
The search for Nirvana, like the search for Utopia or the end of history or the classless society, is ultimately a futile and dangerous one. It involves, if it does not necessitate, the sleep of reason. There is no escape from anxiety and struggle.
For instance, our country wanted to effect a revolution, and did effect it, and now we are building a new classless society.
Money can't buy manners.
Otherwise we get off the track and we do not fulfil the historical role which we want to fulfil: to help the masses, the exploited and the oppressed of the world, build a classless society, a world socialist federation.
In many respects, the United States is the freest country in the world.
I don't just mean in terms of limits on state coercion, though that's true too, but also in terms of individual relations. The United States comes closer to classlessness in terms of interpersonal relations than virtually any society.
What I did that was new was to prove that the existence of classes is only bound up with particular, historical phases in the development of production; that the class struggle necessarily leads to the dictatorship of the proletariat; and that dictatorship itself only constitutes the transition to the abolition of all classes and to a classless society.
