Tada se radjaju ideali kao sto su ideali Amerikanaca ili Boljsevika, koji su, i jedni i drugi neobicno razumni, ali koji ipak vrse nasilje i pljacku nad zivotom, jer ga tako naivno uproscuju. Slika coveka, nekada visok ideal, pocinje da se pretvara u klise. Mozda cemo je mi ludaci oplemeniti."
Author: Hermann Hesse

9. "Ta bare en slik ting som at syv av ti bolsjeviker ikke kan lese, hadde Fabbe fnyst. Vi kan vel ikke overgi makten til en masse analfabeter. I brevene hjem til familien i Yxhult hadde Allans far likevel forsvart bolsjevikene på dette punktet, for familien skulle bare vite hvordan det russiske alfabetet så ut. Det var ikke noe rart om folk ble analfabeter."
Author: Jonas Jonasson
10. "When the Bolsheviks came to power they were soft and easy with their enemies . . . we had begun by making a mistake. Leniency towards such a power was a crime against the working classes. That soon became apparent . . ."

11. "An army cannot be built without reprisals. Masses of men cannot be led to death unless the army command has the death-penalty in its arsenal. So long as those malicious tailless apes that are so proud of their technical achievements—the animals that we call men—will build armies and wage wars, the command will always be obliged to place the soldiers between the possible death in the front and the inevitable one in the rear. And yet armies are not built on fear. The Tsar's army fell to pieces not because of any lack of reprisals. In his attempt to save it by restoring the death-penalty, Kerensky only finished it. Upon the ashes of the great war, the Bolsheviks created a new army. These facts demand no explanation for any one who has even the slightest knowledge of the language of history. The strongest cement in the new army was the ideas of the October revolution, and the train supplied the front with this cement."
Author: Leon Trotsky
12. "I say we have not even had the decency to maintain the assets that our parents and grandparents built for us - our roads, our bridges, our wastewater systems, our sewer systems; by the way, those weren't Bolsheviks, those weren't socialists that built those things for us - much less build the infrastructure we need for the 21st century."
Author: Michael Bennett
13. "When I was an adolescent I wanted to be a Jew, a Bolshevik, black, homosexual, a junkie, half-crazy, and--the crowning touch-- a one-armed amputee, but all I became was a literature professor."
Author: Roberto Bolaño
14. "History is made up of "moral" judgments based on politics. We condemned Lenin's acceptance of money from the Germans in 1917 but were discreetly silent while our Colonel William B. Thompson in the same year contributed a million dollars to the anti-Bolsheviks in Russia. As allies of the Soviets in World War II we praised and cheered communist guerrilla tactics when the Russians used them against the Nazis during the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union; we denounce the same tactics when they are used by communist forces in different parts of the world against us. The opposition's means, used against us, are always immoral and our means are always ethical and rooted in the highest of human values."
Author: Saul D. Alinsky
15. "This is the paradox of public space: even if everyone knows an unpleasant fact, saying it in public changes everything. One of the first measures taken by the new Bolshevik government in 1918 was to make public the entire corpus of tsarist secret diplomacy, all the secret agreements, the secret clauses of public agreements etc. There too the target was the entire functioning of the state apparatuses of power. (Žižek, S. "Good Manners in the Age of WikiLeaks." London Review of Books 33.2 (2011): 9-10. )"
Author: Slavoj Žižek
16. "Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever."
Author: Vladimir Lenin

That is why I didn't choose to close the windows."Cat smiled in spite of the cold. She knew what he meant.
