Eugene V. Debs

  • "Riches are the savings of many in the hands of one."
  • "The rights of one are as sacred as the rights of a million."
  • "Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder...the master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles."
  • "When great changes occur in history, when great principles are involved, as a rule the majority are wrong. The minority are right."
  • While there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free."
