Quotes edit

  • Most revolutionary movements are unable to practise among themselves what they preach. Strong leadership cults, factionalism, ‘ego-tripping’, backbiting are the rule rather than the exception.
  • Do you hear the people sing? Singing the song of angry men? It is the music of the people who will not be slaves again!
    • À la Volonté du Peuple, To the Will of the People, Claude-Michel Schönberg, Alain Boublil, Jean-Marc Natel, Herbert Kretzmer. From the Les Misérables musical, 1980.
