All the sophisticated syllogisms of the ponderous volumes published by Marx, Engels, and hundreds of Marxian authors cannot conceal the fact that the only and ultimate source of Marx's prophecy is an alleged inspiration by virtue of which Marx claims to have guessed the plans of the mysterious powers determining the course of history. Like Hegel, Marx was a prophet communicating to the people the revelation that an inner voice had imparted to him.Human Actionp. 691; p. 695Marxism
Even the most orthodox Marxians are not bold enough to support seriously its essential thesis, namely, that capitalism results in a progressive impoverishment of the wage earners.Human Actionp. 691; p. 694Marxism
For Marx and his parties, the interests of the individual classes are irreconcilably opposed to each other. Each class knows precisely what his class interests are and how to realize them. Therefore, there can only be warfare.A Critique of Interventionismp. 118Marxism
In its most fundamental contentions Marxism has never risen above the level of a doctrine for the soap box orator.Socialismp. 305Marxism
In the eyes of the Marxians, Ricardo, Freud, Bergson, and Einstein are wrong because they are bourgeois; in the eyes of the Nazis they are wrong because they are Jews.Omnipotent Governmentp. 145Marxism
Marx and Engels never tried to refute their opponents with argument. They insulted, ridiculed, derided, slandered, and traduced them, and in the use of these methods their followers are not less expert. Their polemic is directed never against the argument of the opponent, but always against his person.Socialismp. 19Marxism
Marx's economic teachings are essentially a garbled rehash of the theories of Adam Smith and, first of all, of Ricardo.Theory and Historypp. 124-25Marxism
The Bolshevists persistently tell us that religion is opium for the people. Marxism is indeed opium for those who might take to thinking and must therefore be weaned from it.Socialismp. 7Marxism
The Marxian dogma according to which socialism is bound to come with the inexorability of a law of nature is just an arbitrary surmise devoid of any proof.Planning for Freedomp. 33Marxism
The Marxians love of democratic institutions was a stratagem only, a pious fraud for the deception of the masses. Within a socialist community there is no room left for freedom.Omnipotent Governmentpp. 51-52Marxism
