“Society must be made to operate in such a way that it eradicates once and for all the desire of a man to become richer, or wiser, or more powerful than others.”*

"The masses can no longer find a way to go on living; they see that they possess nothing and that they suffer under the harsh and flinty oppression of the ruling class. The hour strikes for great and memorable revolutionary events, already foreseen in the writings of the of the times, when a general overthrow of the system of private property is inevitable, when the revolt of the poor against the rich becomes a necessity that can no longer be postponed."
*-François-Noël Babeuf

Robert Owen*

*- (A Welsh social reformer and one of the founders of utopian socialism and the cooperative movement.)
"Millennium" I know not what ideas individuals may attach to the term; but I know that society may be formed so as to exist without crime, without poverty, with health greatly improved, with little, if any misery, and with intelligence and happiness increased a hundredfold; and no obstacle whatsoever intervenes at this moment except ignorance to prevent such a state of society from becoming universal.”
