  1. Joo Pedro Stedile:

    Lula has been kidnapped by the bourgeoisie, the ransom is for us to stop fighting. They want to bring the Brazilian people to their knees.

  2. George Orwell:

    It is a commonplace that the history of civilisation is largely the history of weapons. In particular, the connection between the discovery of gunpowder and the overthrow of feudalism by the bourgeoisie has been pointed out over and over again. And though I have no doubt exceptions can be brought forward, I think the following rule would be found to be generally true that ages in which the dominant weapon is expensive or difficult to make will be ages of despotism, whereas when the dominant weapon is cheap and simple, the common people have a chance. Thus, for example, tanks, battleships and bombing planes are inherently tyrannical weapons, while rifles, muskets, long-bows and hand-grenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon --so long as there is no answer to it-- gives claws to the weak.

  3. Van Fleet:

    One of the teachers was considered bourgeoisie because she liked to wear pretty clothes, so the students attacked her and spit on her. She was covered with spit… and pretty soon it became violence.

  4. Joseph Goebbels:

    Socialism is possible only in a state that is united domestically and free internationally. The bourgeoisie (capitalists) and Marxism are responsible for failing to reach both goals, domestic unity and international freedom. No matter how national and social these two forces present themselves, they are the sworn enemies of a socialist national state. We must therefore break both groups politically. The lines of German socialism are sharp, and our path is clear. We are against the political bourgeoisie, and for genuine nationalism! We are against Marxism, but for true socialism! We are for the first German national state of a socialist nature! We are for the National Socialist German Workers Party!

  5. President Nicolas Maduro:

    If the managers are committing sabotage, here's the head of Sebin (Venezuela's intelligence service) and he'll put them in prison right away, enough of the bourgeoisie. Imprison them.
