Synthesis One: Codreanu - Marx

Under the headline Synthesis Spöknippet will publish various attempts to create some sort of synthesis between persons generally thought to be at opposing ends of the political spectrum. It may take the form of more elaborate analysis or, as is the case below, just some short quotations.

"This country is dying due to lack of men, not lack of programmes: at least this is our opinion. In other words, it is not programmes that we must have, but men, new men."
Corneliu Zelea Codreanu 1903-1938

"Every step of real movement is more important than a dozen programmes."
Karl Marx 1818-1883

Don't forget:
"Programmes, programmes, always with your endless programmes when it is sweat and hard work we need!" - Winston Churchill

"I've been accused of not being interested in programmes. But no one can accuse me of not standing up and moving forward!" - Margaret Thatcher

"My fellow Americans. My opponent claims to bring a radical new program to the table, but what does he know about progress?" - John F. Kennedy

"A party's aim is to achieve power under the pretext of carrying out its programme. And yet, democratically, none of these parties should govern the whole people because of the diversity of interests, ideas, temperaments, localities and beliefs, which constitute the people's identity." - Mu'ammar al-Qadhafi

"Authors often claim a special connection with programs they have written, and go on to assert that, as a result, their desires and interests concerning the program simply outweigh those of anyone else---or even those of the whole rest of the world." - Richard Stallman
