Still true today as it was a hundred year ago…
“Freedom in capitalist society always remain about the same as it was in ancient greek republics : Freedom for the slave-owners”
-Vladimir Ilyich Lenin / Leader of Bolshevik Communist Party, Russian Revolutionary and Political Theorist –
As one of the most important and influential political figure in 20th century, Vladimir Lenin had brought manifesto of marxism into being and his brilliant thought always strikes the russian people and yet the whole world. In one of his most timeless pithy that have been perpetuated through many generations, is his vitriolic contention and objection toward capitalist system. In this aphorism, he summed up a great deal on the reality of capitalist system and it’s predatory machine : no freedom for humanity, if it is not for feeding the massive ‘blood-sucking’ corporations.
