Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) quotes
- All history has been a history of class struggles between dominated classes at various stages of social development.
- Everything must justify its existence before the judgment seat of reason, or give up existence.
- Freedom is the recognition of necessity.
- From the first day to this, sheer greed was the driving spirit of civilization.
- Look at the Paris Commune. That was the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.
- Some laws of state aimed at curbing crime are even more criminal.
- The state is not abolished, it withers away.
- The state is nothing but an instrument of opression of one class by another - no less so in a democratic republic than in a monarchy.
