Communism is the opiate of the intellectuals with no cure except as a guillotine might be called a cure for dandruff.

Clare Boothe Luce, dramatist

Under socialism all will govern in turn and will soon become accustomed to no one governing.

Communism is trying to take the world by force. But God will take the world by love.

Alfred Jarry, writer

There is nothing in socialism that a little age or a little money will not cure.

Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism, it's just the opposite.

John Kenneth Galbraith, economist

Socialism can only arrive by bicycle.

Jose Antonio Viera Gallo,

Lions, wolves, and vultures don't live together in herds, droves or flocks. Of all animals of prey, man is the only sociable one. Every one of us preys upon his neighbor, and yet we herd together.

John Gay, poet

I am a Communist, a convinced Communist! For some that may be a fantasy. But to me it is my main goal.

Mikhail Gorbachev, statesman

Communism, my friend, is more than Marxism, just as Catholicism is more than the Roman Curia. There is a mystique as well as a politick. Catholics and Communists have committed great crimes, but at least they have not stood aside, like an established society, and been indifferent. I would rather have blood on my hands than water like Pilate.

Graham Greene, playwright

This socialism will develop in all its phases until it reaches its own extremes and absurdities. Then once again a cry of denial will break from the titanic chest of the revolutionary minority and again a mortal struggle will begin, in which socialism will play the role of contemporary conservatism and will be overwhelmed in the subsequent revolution, as yet unknown to us.

Alexander Herzen, journalist

If Socialism can only be realized when the intellectual development of all the people permits it, then we shall not see Socialism for at least five hundred years.

Nelson Mandela, statesman

Hypostatized into a ritual pattern, Marxian theory becomes ideology. But its content and function distinguish it from classical forms of ideology; it is not false consciousness, but a rather consciousness of falsehood, a falsehood which is corrected in the context of the higher truth represented by the objective historical interest.

Herbert Marcuse, philosopher

By concentrating on what is good in people, by appealing to their idealism and their sense of justice, and by asking them to put their faith in the future, socialists put themselves at a severe disadvantage.

Ian McEwan, author

Communism, like any other revealed religion, is largely made up of prophecies.

H. L. Mencken, writer

Great Socialist statesmen aren't made, they're still-born.

Hector Hugh Munro, novelist

In the end we beat them with Levi 501 jeans. Seventy-two years of Communist indoctrination and propaganda was drowned out by a three-ounce Sony Walkman. A huge totalitarian system has been brought to its knees because nobody wants to wear Bulgarian shoes. Now they're lunch, and we're number one on the planet.

P. J. O'Rourke, comedian

We are the party of all labor. The whole earth shall be ours to share. And every race and craft our neighbor. No idle class shall linger there like vultures on the wealth we render from field and factory, mill and mine. Tomorrow's sun will rise in splendor and light us till the end of time.

Eugene Pottier,

Communism is inequality, but not as property is. Property is exploitation of the weak by the strong. Communism is exploitation of the strong by the weak.

Pierre Joseph Proudhon,

A common danger tends to concord. Communism is the exploitation of the strong by the weak. In Communism, inequality comes from placing mediocrity on a level with excellence.

Pierre Joseph Proudhon,

Communism is in conflict with human nature.

Ernest Renan, philosopher

Socialism must come down from the brain and reach the heart.

Jules Renard, dramatist

Communism to me is one-third practice and two-thirds explanation.

We must conclude that it is not only a particular political ideology that has failed, but the idea that men and women could ever define themselves in terms that exclude their spiritual needs.

Salman Rushdie, novelist

To the believer Marxism presents, first, a system of ultimate ends that embody the meaning of life and are absolute standards by which to judge events and actions...

Joseph Schumpeter,

Socialism is a vast machine for churning out piles of goods marked Take it or leave it.

Arthur Seldon,

The final conflict will be between the Communists and the ex-Communists.

Ignazio Silone, author

There are only two sorts of people in life you can trust -- good Christians and good Communists.

Joe Slovo,

The Communists claim that they liberated the Russian people. Yet, when the Great Patriotic War began, these same Russians greeted their foreign invaders with tears, with flowers and with enthusiastic hospitality. What can have brought them to the point at which they would greet even Hitler as their saviour and liberator?

Viktor Suvorov,

Socialism proposes no adequate substitute for the motive of enlightened selfishness that to-day is at the basis of all human labor and effort, enterprise and new activity.

William Howard Taft, president

The crusade against Communism was even more imaginary than the specter of Communism.

A. J. P. Taylor, historian

What men call social virtues, good fellowship, is commonly but the virtue of pigs in a litter, which lie close together to keep each other warm.

Henry David Thoreau, author

Our fear that Communism might some day take over most of the world blinds us to the fact that anti-communism already has.


All that Communism needs to make it successful is someone to feed and clothe it.

Communists should be the first to be concerned about other people and country and the last to enjoy themselves.

Zhao Ziyang, statesman

I am a communist because I believe that the Communist idea is a state form of Christianity.

Alexander Zhuravlyov,

I don't like Communism because it hands out wealth through rationing books.

Omar Torrijos Herrera, soldier

Communism is a proposition to structure the world more reasonably, a proposition for changing the world. As such, we have to analyze it and, if we deem it reasonable, act upon it.

Friedrich Durrenmatt, author

The Cold War isn't thawing; it is burning with a deadly heat. Communism isn't sleeping; it is, as always, plotting, scheming, working, fighting.

Richard M. Nixon, president

It's not communism, it's shouldn't be that everybody gets a try no matter how good or bad they are. It's our profession and our art, so we should eventually strive to be working with the best people.

Amy Poehler, comedian

The clock of communism has stopped striking. But its concrete building has not yet come crashing down. For that reason, instead of freeing ourselves, we must try to save ourselves from being crushed by its rubble.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, author

Communism will win.

Slavoj Zizek, philosopher

We need the private sector to create jobs. If the government could create jobs Communism would have worked, but it didn't.

Tim Scott, politician

If you look at the fact that the best chance we have for a good economy is the private sector. The government cannot create jobs. If the government could create jobs, then Communism would have worked. But didn't work. So what we have to do is allow the private sector and the entrepreneurial spirit to lead us back to a job-filled recovery.

Tim Scott, politician

I grew up under Communism so we could only learn Russian, and then when Communism fell in 1989 we could learn a few more things and have the freedom to travel and the freedom of speech - and the freedom of dreaming, really.

Petra Nemcova, model

In the Soviet Union, capitalism triumphed over communism. In this country, capitalism triumphed over democracy.

Fran Lebowitz, journalist

Andre Malraux, author

If Communism goes, I've still got the U.S. House of Representatives.

Robert Novak, journalist

You can talk about capitalism and communism and all that sort of thing, but the important thing is the struggle everybody is engaged in to get better living conditions, and they are not interested too much in government.

Bernard Baruch, businessman

I am for socialism, disarmament, and, ultimately, for abolishing the state itself... I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.

Roger Nash Baldwin, activist

We first fought... in the name of religion, then Communism, and now in the name of drugs and terrorism. Our excuses for global domination always change.

Serj Tankian, musician

Communism has decided against God, against Christ, against the Bible, and against all religion.

Billy Graham, evangelist

There is a specter haunting Europe, the specter of Communism.
