"We'll be the invisible army: our uniform will be that of the man in the street, the peasant in the field."
- Michael Collins

"We live in a really decadent society, like Russia before the revolution, or China before the revolution or Cuba before the revolution. We're like a sewer: there's a tremendous amount of crime, tremendous amount of backwardness, tremendous amount of individualism, competition, hatred of people."
- Weather Underground

"For a successful revolution to take place, the vast majority of people have to be involved in it, with some people doing different types of fighting. Some people leading mass struggles, some people leading the armed struggle. And those things are very closely related. So that means that everything that we do is built around the strategy of trying to mobilize, lead, and or participate in those struggles."
- Weather Underground

"You've got to conform to the society in which you live. You've got to live within it or outside of it. You can't just straddle a fence. Now are you going to live outside the American culture or are you going to live within it? As long as you stay in America, you've got to conform. What else are you going to do?"
- Unnamed US Citizen

"Citizens throughout the country who cherish an orderly society will be outraged by the fact that it has become necessary to close this institution because of an uprising that can only be described as anarchy."
- Robert Byrd

"I say violence is necessary. Violence is a part of American culture. It is as American as cherry pie. America taught people to be violent."
- H. Rap Brown

"Yo tengo un hermano muerto. Lo mató una bala en la cabeza. Del fusil del soldado del gobierno del poderosos que sirve a otro poderosos que sirve a otro en todo el mundo."
- Subcommandante Marcos

"We will use that violence to rid ourselves of oppression if necessary. We will be free by any means necessary."
- H. Rap Brown
