Communism is the opiate of the people.
For us in Russia communism is a dead dog. For many people in the West, it is still a living lion.
I dare hope that all the peoples who have lived through communism will understand that communism is to blame for the bitter pages of their history.
It would have been difficult to design a path out of communism worse than the one that has been followed.
The clock of communism has stopped striking. But its concrete building has not yet come crashing down. For that reason, instead of freeing ourselves, we must try to save ourselves from being crushed by its rubble.
