In civilised and advanced Europe … a point in history has been reached when the commanding bourgeoisie , fearing the growth and increasing strength of the proletariat, comes out in support of everything backward, moribund and medieval. The beourgeoisie is living out its last days, and is joining with all obsolete and obsolescent forces in an attempt to preserve tottering wage slavery.' – Lenin May 18, 1913
