Raymond Williams, novelist

It would have been difficult to design a path out of communism worse than the one that has been followed.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, author

If the English want a king, it is their business. If the Russians want communism, it is their business. If the Americans want our form of government, it is our business.
