quote by Oscar Romero

When we speak for the poor, please note that we do not take sides with one social class. What we do is invite all social classes, rich and poor, without distinction, saying to everyone let us take seriously the cause of the poor as though it were our own.

— Oscar Romero

We must not depict socialism as if socialists will bring it to us on a plate all nicely dressed. That will never happen.

Every departure from class struggle has fatal results for the destiny of socialism.

In all social systems there must be a class to do the menial duties, to perform the drudgery of life. That is, a class requiring but a low order of intellect and but little skill. Its requisites are vigor, docility, fidelity. Such a class you must have, or you would not have that other class which leads progress, civilization, and refinement.
