Famous quotes containing the word politics:

    When feminism does not explicitly oppose racism, and when antiracism does not incorporate opposition to patriarchy, race and gender politics often end up being antagonistic to each other and both interests lose.
    Kimberly Crenshaw (b. 1959)

    Politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)

    Politics is repetition. It is not change. Change is something beyond what we call politics. Change is the essence politics is supposed to be the means to bring into being.
    Kate Millett (b. 1934)
