Struggle to the Death

Struggle to the Death

"A struggle to the death between capitalism and Communism is unavoidable. Certainly we are not strong enough to attack today. Our time will come in about 20 or 30 years. In order to be victorious we will need the element of surprise. The burgeoise must be lulled asleep. We will accomplish this by starting the most theatrical peace movement the world has ever seen. The capitalistic countries, being stupid and decadent, will work with pleasure towards their own destruction. Seizing the opportunity of this new friendship, they will walk straight into the waiting trap. And as soon as their defences are exposed we will smash them with our mailed fist."

—Manuilsky, Professor at the War Academy in Moscow. 1931.
