"They will furnish credits which will serve us for the support of the Communist Party in their countries and, by supplying us materials and technical equipment which we lack, will restore our military industry necessary for our future attacks against our suppliers. To put it in other words, they will work on the preparation of their own suicide."
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
[Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov] (1870-1924) First Leader of the Soviet Union

Reader comments about this quote:
I'm not sure how to rate this. It was Marx that made vogue the term "capitalism" with an extreme change in meaning. Pure and traditional capitalism included a tangible monetary exchange such as gold and silver coin. Theocratic communism's adversary was fallaciously claimed to be a debt based capitalism. In 1913 both the 2nd plank of the communist manifesto and debt notes came into play advancing Lenin's here prediction.

    It is a very true statement, having tainted the water of pure capitalism, association with adversaries whose ends are the opposite of maintaining a Freed state of opportunity for the individual sovereign. The corralling ability of a few is on global display.
