How to use masses in a sentence?

  1. Anuj Somany:

    Classes differentiate themselves from masses by the yardstick of mental prowess standard than by the monetary power status. A true leader hails from the classes and others belong to the masses.

  2. Giuseppe Mazzini:

    Insurrection: Insurrection as soon as circumstances allow: insurrection, strenuous, ubiquitous: the insurrection of the masses: the holy war of the oppressed: the republic to make republicans: the people in action to initiate progress. Let the insurrection announce with its awful voice the decrees of God: let it clear and level the ground on which its own immortal structure shall be raised. Let it, like the Nile, flood all the country that it is destined to make fertile.

  3. William Osler:

    One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.

  4. Prime Minister Viktor Orban:

    If Turkey chooses the latter, these people will arrive at Hungary's southern border in huge masses.

  5. Jon Rappoport:

    Let's see socialism for what it is. Not in the abstract, but in reality. Socialism is: The taking of money (taxes) from some people who work for it and giving it to others who don't work for it. On a grand scale. The vast expansion of freebies doled out by central government. In order to create and sustain dependence. The government protection of favored persons and corporations, permitting them and aiding them to expand their fortunes without limit, regardless of what crimes they commit in the process. (Monsanto would be a fine example.) The squeezing out of those who would compete with the favored persons and corporations. The dictatorship by and for the very wealthy, pretending to be the servant of the masses. The lie that the dictatorship is being run by the masses. The gradual lowering of the standard of living for the overwhelming number of people. The propaganda claiming socialism is the path to a better world for all. In other words, socialism is a protection racket and a long con and a heartless system of elite control, posing as the greatest good. It is just another form of top-down tyranny as old as the hills.
