“We stand today … before the awful proposition: either the triumph of imperialism and the destruction of all culture, and, as in ancient Rome, depopulation, desolation, degeneration, a vast cemetery; or, the victory of socialism.” — Rosa Luxemburg, The Junius Pamphlet, chapter 1, in the Rosa Luxemburg Internet Archive
