‘‘Only struggle educates the exploited class. Only struggle discloses to it the magnitude of its own power, widens its horizon, enhances its abilities, clarifies its mind, forges its will.’’ (Lectures on 1905 Revolution-CW Vol 23)
‘‘Everyone knows that bourgeois politicians always come forward with all sorts of slogans, programmes, and platforms to deceive the people. Bourgeois politicians always, especially before elections, call themselves liberals, progressives, democrats and even ‘radical socialists’ solely for the purpose of catching votes and deceiving the people. This is a universal phenomenon in all capitalist countries. That is why Marx and Engels even referred to bourgeois deputies as people …who represent and repress the people through their parliamentary powers.’’ (The new Senate Interpretation CW Vol.11 p.335)
