„"I am on the anti-imperialist left." The Stalinist left? "I wouldn't define it that way because of the pejoratives loaded around it; that would be making a rod for your own back. If you are asking did I support the Soviet Union, yes I did. Yes, I did support the Soviet Union, and I think the disappearance of the Soviet Union is the biggest catastrophe of my life. If there was a Soviet Union today, we would not be having this conversation about plunging into a new war in the Middle East, and the US would not be rampaging around the globe."“

„Translation: "Soviet Union is under dictatorship of the proletariat, the intelligentsia class is going to be starved to death."…a well known reporter had so warned me. Yes, I am afraid I might lost some sleep. But then, dictatorship of the proletariat(at present), isn't it for the forth coming of the classless society? As long as you do not murder it, naturally it's success will arrive soon, the elimination of classes will arrive soon, then no one will be "starved to death"…But now, the imperialists and their running dogs, still trying to tell us the Soviet Union's shortcomings, as if they really wish that Soviet Union would become heaven overnight, and all of it's people would enjoy life. Now, it turns out to be like that, it (imperialist) is disappointed, and feel uneasy…This is really the tears of the devil.“

—  Lu Xun Chinese novelist and essayist 1881 - 1936

Добавить примечание: (zh_Hant) “蘇聯是無產階級專政的,智識階級就要餓死。”……位有名的記者曾經這樣警告我。是的,這倒恐怕要使我也有些睡不著了。但無產階級專政,不是為了將來的無階級社會麼?只要你不去謀害它,自然成功就早,階級的消滅也就早,那時就誰也不會“餓死”了……然而帝國主義及其奴才們,還來對我們說蘇聯怎麼不好,好像它倒願意蘇聯一下子就變成天堂,人們個個享福。現在竟這樣子,它失望了,不舒服了。——這真是惡鬼的眼淚。……

„The Soviet Union's propaganda clearly wishes to use public opinion in this country to get the West to reduce its own arms while doing nothing themselves. In this way they would gain nuclear superiority. This is simply not on.“

—  James Callaghan Prime Minister of the United Kingdom; 1976-1979 1912 - 2005

Speech at Cardiff (25 May 1983), quoted in Tim Jones, "Callaghan defends deterrent", The Times (26 May 1983), p. 1. This was during the 1983 general election in which the Labour Party had a policy of unilateral nuclear disarmament.

„I did spearhead the introduction of the Internet in countries like Russia, the former Soviet Union, because it is a very open system of communication. I think it has great potential for self-organization and self-organization is very much at the heart of an open society.“

—  George Soros Hungarian-American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist 1930

Interview with Mark Shapiro (2000)
Контексте: I did spearhead the introduction of the Internet in countries like Russia, the former Soviet Union, because it is a very open system of communication. I think it has great potential for self-organization and self-organization is very much at the heart of an open society. The Internet is sort of a medium of open society. However, it can also be a medium of control and so we have to be careful it doesn't destroy you.
