Karl Marx himself preferred a glass of claret to the mug of tea affected by some of his recent converts.
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. it is the opium of the people.
Karl Marx 1843
Leninism is Marxism of the era of imperialism and the proletarian revolution.
Josef Stalin 1917
In the Conservative Party we have no truck with outmoded Marxist doctrine about class warfare. For us it is not who you are, who your family is or where you come from that matters, but what you are and what you can do for your country that counts.
Margaret Thatcher 1984
I want to get totally rid of class distinction. As someone put it one of the papers this morning: Marks and Spencer have triumphed over Karl Marx and Engels.
Margaret Thatcher 06/05/1985
Marxists get up early to further their cause. We must get up even earlier to defend our freedom.
Margaret Thatcher 05/1978
I am convinced that there is little force left in the Marxist stimulus to revolution. Its impetus is petering out as the practical failures of the doctrine become more obvious...What is left is a technique of subversion and a collection of catch-phrases. The former is still dangerous. Like terrorism, it is a menace that needs to be fought whenever it occurs.
Margaret Thatcher 19/12/1979
