Favourite Quotes

“The bourgeoisie cannot exist without constantly revolutionizing the instruments of production, and thereby the relations of production, and with them the whole relations of society. Conservation of the old modes of production in unaltered forms, was, on the contrary, the first condition of existence for all earlier industrial classes. Constant revolutionizing of production, uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions, everlasting uncertainty and agitation, distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones.    - Karl Marx

“The proletarians have nothing to loose but their chains. They have a world to win. -Karl Marx

“In proportion therefore, as the repulsiveness of the work increases, the wage decreases.”     
- Karl Marx
