"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents."

"The people had forfeited the confidence of the government and could win it back only by redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier in that case for the government to dissolve the people and elect another?"

"Racism does not exist. If a community is not accepted by the others, it is because it does not produce good results, otherwise it is admitted without problem. If its members complain of racism, it is because they bring disorder. When they do only good, everybody welcomes them with open arms."

"The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated."

— Gandhi

"It’s queer how out of touch with truth women are. They live in a world of their own, and there has never been anything like it, and never can be. It is too beautiful altogether, and if they were to set it up it would go to pieces before the first sunset. Some confounded fact we men have been living contentedly with ever since the day of creation would start up and knock the whole thing over."

"An opinion as general as antisemitism, which has flourished in all countries and in all ages, before and after the Christian era, at Alexandria, Rome, and Antiachia, in Arabia, and in Persia, in mediaeval and in modern Europe, in a word, in all parts of the world wherever there are or have been Jews such an opinion, it has seemed to me, could not spring from a mere whim or fancy, but must be the effect of deep and serious causes. As the enemies of the Jews belonged to the most diverse races; as they dwelled far apart from one another, were ruled by different laws and governed by opposite principles; as they had not the same customs and differed in spirit from one another, so that they could not possibly judge alike of any subject it must needs be that the general causes of antisemitism have always resided in Israel itself, and not in those who antagonized it."

"Much of what is called anti-fascism today is either naive or dishonest. Indeed it pretends to fight something which is dead and buried, an archaeological phenomenon that can no longer scare anyone. It is a comfortable and easy anti-fascism which dissimulates the real fascism."

"The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable..."

"Islam is a religion of peace ... after the conquest."

"The journalist who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the street hunting for another job. The business of a New York journalist is to distort the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to villify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread, or for what is about the same — his salary. You know this, and I know it; and what foolery to be toasting an "Independent Press"! We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping-jacks. They pull the string and we dance. Our time, our talents, our lives, our possibilities, are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."

"The Bourgeoisie has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, than callous “cash payment”. It has drowned the most heavenly ecstasies of religious fervour, of chivalrous enthusiasm, of philistine sentimentalism, in the icy water of egotistical calculation. It has resolved personal worth into exchange value, and in place of the numberless indefeasible chartered freedoms, has set up that single, unconscionable freedom — Free Trade."

— Karl Marx

"France is at war with America. Yes, a constant war, a vital war, an economic war, a war without death. In appearance. Yes, they are very tough, the Americans, they are rapacious, they want undisputed power over the world... They left nothing to their allies."

"Altruism, beyond kinship, is selfishness in disguise."

— Laurent Obertone

"How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?"

"The force of capitalism is to convert everything into merchandise, even opposition to capitalism."

"In the Soviet Union we had the gulags. We have a gulag in the European Union also. An intellectual gulag called "political correctness"."

"Womanizers of yesterday had two phobias : carrying the ball and chain of marriage and getting their partners pregnant. The paradoxical fate of feminism has been to fulfill the wildest dreams of those irresponsible male predators, by exalting sex without marriage, by imposing divorce and by legalizing abortion, all in the name of women's freedom!"

"We hear now on all sides the term "robber barons" applied to some of the great capitalists. ... The old robber barons of the Middle Ages who plundered sword in hand and lance in rest were more honest than this new aristocracy of swindling millionaires."

— Lida F. Baldwin

"The decline in courage, at times attaining what could be termed a lack of manhood, is ironically emphasized by occasional outbursts and inflexibility on the part of the political and intellectual functionaries when dealing with weak governments and with countries that lack support, or with doomed currents which clearly cannot offer resistance. But they get tongue-tied and paralyzed when they deal with powerful governments and threatening forces, with aggressors and international terrorists."

"Tolerance is the modern word for cowardice"

— Laurent Obertone

"I forgive many things but I hate the atheist and the materialist. How do you think I have something in common with someone who does not believe in the existence of the soul, and believes that he is a pile of mud, and wants me to be like him, a pile of mud?"
