V.I Lenin

"The strength of the proletariat and the peasantry allied to it grows with the resistance of the bourgeoisie and its retainers.

"Apart from the purchase and distribution of products, every consumers’ society shall engage in the sale of local products."

"We must fight against the old habit of regarding the measure of labour and the means of production from the point of view of the slave whose sole aim is to lighten the burden of labour or to obtain at least some little bit from the bourgeoisie."
