— Karl Marx

Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Workingmen of all countries, unite!
Karl Marx proletarian quote

There is in fact no such thing as art for art's sake, art that stands above classes, art that is detached from or independent of politics. Proletarian literature and art are part of the whole proletarian revolutionary cause.
— Mao Zedong

Fascism is a European inquietude. It is a way of knowing everything -- history, the State, the achievement of the proletarianization of public life, a new way of knowing the phenomena of our epoch.
— J. A. Primo De Rivera

It is a mass language only in the same sense that its baseball slang is born of baseball players. That is, it is a language which is being molded by writers to do delicate things and yet be within the grasp of superficially educated people. It is not a natural growth, much as its proletarian writers would like to think so. But compared with it at its best, English has reached the Alexandrian stage of formalism and decay.
— proletarian quotation by Raymond Chandler
