Communism Quotes

Communism is the anti-thesis of capitalism. Communism advocates common ownership and a stateless society as against private ownership and profit, which are the basis of capitalism. This economic theory was first propounded by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. What has been portrayed of communism in theory has rarely been successful in practice. The concept of communism was made to remove inequality and to deliver the basic necessities of health, education and employment to the citizens. This concept Is not practical as it hampers personal growth of the individual, leads to dictatorship and does not give financial freedom to the people. The communist governments,at least in a few countries, have resorted to suppression, human right abuse and victimization of the workers they represent.

Although the works of Marx, such as 'Das Kapital' have been applauded across the world, many countries across the world have shunned communism. The era of great dictators like Vladimir Lenin and Josef Stalin, the brutal regime of Pol Pot, the governance in North Korea since decades and several other examples from history have got people intimidated by the ideology. The following communism quotes will help you get a clear idea of it.

Karl Marx

The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property.

Richard M. Nixon

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.

William Morris

Karl Marx

A specter is haunting Europe - the specter of communism.

Karl Marx

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

H. L. Mencken

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

Religion
Robert Kennedy

Ultimately, Communism must be defeated by progressive political programs which wipe out the poverty, misery, and discontent on which it thrives.

Billy Graham

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

Bible Religion

When historians consider the significance of the Berlin crises of the mid-20th century, I do not believe that they will record it as an incident in the encirclement of freedom. The true view, in my judgment, will be to see it rather as a major episode in the recession of communism.

George Bernard Shaw

Socialism is the same as Communism, only better English.

Robert Kennedy

Nothing is more false than the notion that the triumph of Communism is inevitable or that the Communists are steadily pushing the free world into a corner.
