Socialism is the gradual and less violent form of communism, and socialist is the project of the European Union, which was born in Maastricht in 1992.

Socialism has no moral justification whatsoever; poor people are not morally superior to rich people, nor are they owed anything by rich people simply because of their lack of success.

Americans mythologize competition and credit it with saving us from socialist bread lines. Actually, capitalism and competition are opposites. Capitalism is premised on the accumulation of capital, but under perfect competition, all profits get competed away.
We need wealthy dogs off the seats of power. They're taking us back to feudalism and I really don't want that. But I'm very far from being a socialist.

Lalu Prasad Yadav
I think Barack Obama is a socialist.

Michael Eric Dyson
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
