Words that set off revolution
Thursday 16 January 1997
Lenin: Where force is necessary it must be applied boldly, decisively and completely. But one must know the limitations of force; one must know when to blend force with a manoeuvre, a blow with an agreement
Mao: We must let a hundred flowers bloom and a hundred schools of thought contend and see which flowers are the best and which school of thought is best expressed and we shall applaud the best blooms and the best thoughts.
Jesus Christ: The truth shall set you free.
Garibaldi: I can offer you neither honours nor wages; I offer you hunger, thirst, forced marches, battles and death. Anyone who loves his country, follow me
Robespierre: Any law which violates the inalienable rights of man is essentially unjust and tyrannical; it is not a law at all, and: Any institution which does not suppose the people good and the magistrate corruptible is evil.
Gandhi: What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy? and:
The moment the slave resolves that he will no longer be a slave, his fetters fall. He frees himself and shows the way to others. Freedom and slavery are mental states.
Anon (graffiti): Revolution allows the revolutionary to sublimate his sado-masochistic, neurotic, anal tendencies into a concern for the working class
Oscar Wilde: Disobedience in the eyes of any one who has read history, is man's original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion.
Thomas Jefferson: The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.
