quote of the day: Aveling

"You will ask: ‘Will you not have a frightful struggle and will it not end in bloodshed?’ Possibly. I do not know. ‘Is it not setting class against class?’ Yes; and Socialists mean to devote their lives to setting class against class. We preach class warfare. We hope it may not be a warfare of bullets and steel, but if it is class warfare even this, alas! is possible. It is a warfare of the labour class against the capitalist class." —Edward Aveling
