- Forms of the economy, however firm they may seem, are changeable (...) Only the annihilation of a system of exploitation carries with it the core of the rebirth of our people.
- Socialism is the doctrine of liberation for the working class.
- The bourgeois is about to leave the historical stage. In its place will come the class of productive workers, the working class, that has been up until today oppressed. It is beginning to fulfill its political mission. It is involved in a hard and bitter struggle for political power as it seeks to become part of the national organism.
- The battle began in the economic realm; it will finish in the political. It is not merely a matter of wages, not only a matter of the number of hours worked in a day—though we may never forget that these are an essential, perhaps even the most significant part of the socialist platform—but it is much more a matter of incorporating a powerful and responsible class in the state, perhaps even to make it the dominant force in the future politics.
- The bourgeoisie does not want to recognise the strength of the working class.
- We are socialists because we see the social question as a matter of necessity and justice for the very existence of a state for our people, not a question of cheap pity or insulting sentimentality.
- The worker has a claim to a living standard that corresponds to what he produces. We have no intention of begging for that right.
- It is a matter of forming a new state consciousness that includes every productive citizen. Since the political powers of the day are neither willing nor able to create such a situation, socialism must be fought for.
- Work is not mankind’s curse, but his blessing. A man becomes a man through labour. It elevates him, makes him great and aware, raises him above all other creatures. It is in the deepest sense creative, productive, and culture-producing. Without labour, no food. Without food, no life.
- We are a workers’ party because we see in the coming battle between finance and labour the beginning and the end of the structure of the twentieth century. We are on the side of labour and against finance.
- Profit is a filthy word.
Well. Who may be the author of these words? A Marxist politician, maybe? Not quite. The author believed Marxism was not radical enough:
- While the working class gradually disintegrates in the Marxist front, bleeding itself dry, the bourgeoisie and Marxism have agreed on the general lines of capitalism, and see their task now to protect and defend it in various ways, often concealed.
Not spiritual enough, too:
- The sin of Marxism was to degrade socialism into a question of wages and the stomach.
So. What wrote all the above?
It was Joseph Goebbels in 1932, except for the 'profit is a filthy word' quote. (It was Russell Brand who said that.) Somebody just loves to talk about issues such as class struggle, socialism, oppressed workers, and evil bourgeoisie.
This is Goebbels' word cloud based upon the above quoted speech:
