    Freedom in capitalist society always remains about the same as it was in ancient Greek republics: Freedom for slave owners.
    —Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870–1924)

    All our lives we fought against exalting the individual, against the elevation of the single person, and long ago we were over and done with the business of a hero, and here it comes up again: the glorification of one personality. This is not good at all. I am just like everybody else.
    —Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870–1924)

    Imperialism is capitalism at that stage of development at which the dominance of monopolies and finance capitalism is established; in which the export of capital has acquired pronounced importance; in which the division of the world among the international trusts has begun, in which the division of all territories of the globe among the biggest capitalist powers has been completed.
    —Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870–1924)
