Their administration is not properly, and cannot be, a matter of politics. Letter to the editor, Washington Post (1953); quoted in Lost Woods: The Discovered Writing of Rachel Carson (1999) edited by Linda Lear, p. 99

„There has never been a free people, a civilized nation, a real republic on this earth.“

—  Eugene V. Debs American labor and political leader 1855 - 1926
Context: There has never been a free people, a civilized nation, a real republic on this earth. Human society has always consisted of masters and slaves, and the slaves have always been and are today, the foundation stones of the social fabric. Wage-labor is but a name; wage-slavery is the fact.
