Friedrich Engels quotes
All history has been a history of class struggles between dominated classes at various stages of social development.

Friedrich Engels

Friedrich Engels

Friedrich Engels
From the first day to this, sheer greed was the driving spirit of civilization.

Friedrich Engels

Friedrich Engels
