Our enemy sees us clearly. … They will not start a war. They’re worried about one thing: If democracy develops here, if we succeed, we will win
Democracy is the wholesome and pure air without which a socialist public organization cannot live a full-blooded life.
Without glasnost there is not, and there cannot be, democratism, the political creativity of the masses and their participation in management
It is better to discuss things, to argue and engage in polemics than make perfidious plans of mutual destruction.
The shortage of fresh water is the major ecological problem of this moment.
We must treat water as if it were the most precious thing in the world, the most valuable natural resource. Be economical with water! Don’t waste it! We still have time to do something about this problem before it is too late
Water, like religion and ideology, has the power to move millions of people. Since the very birth of human civilization, people have moved to settle close to it. People move when there is too little of it. People move when there is too much of it. People journey down it. People write, sing and dance about it. People fight over it. And all people, everywhere and every day, need it
God has given us enough wisdom to make improvements in our relations.
Jesus was the first socialist, the first to seek a better life for mankind.
The ecologization of politics requires us to acknowledge the priority of human values and makes ecology part of education at an early age, molding a new, modern approach to nature and, at the same time, giving back to man a sense of being part of nature. No moral improvement of society is possible without that
