How to use vanguard in a sentence?

  1. Noam Chomsky:

    The consistent anarchist should be a socialist, but a socialist of a particular sort. He will not only oppose alienated and specialized labor and look forward to the appropriation of capital by the whole body of workers, but he will also insist that this appropriation be direct, not exercised by some elite force acting in the name of the proletariat. Some sort of council communism is the natural form of revolutionary socialism in an industrial society. It reflects the intuitive understanding that democracy is largely a sham when the industrial system is controlled by any form of autocratic elite, whether of owners, managers, and technocrats, a vanguard party, or a State bureaucracy.

  2. Todd Rosenbluth:

    There's a very small handful of managers who are known, and like everybody else they are getting older and sooner or later they will be retiring, at that point it's not inconceivable for investors to say I'm just going to choose a Vanguard 500 index fund from now on.

  3. Debasish Mridha, M.D.:

    Life is nothing but changes. Don't resist changes, but be the vanguard of it.

  4. Rod Doss:

    In many instances we've been in the vanguard of creating change, because we do challenge the community from within, that's where it begins.

  5. Dan Wiener:

    Vanguard is a passive player pretending to take an active role. But their weapon is a gun loaded with blanks.
