„The worst reproach that Engels could make against the first English Marxists was that they were applying Marxism in a sectarian spirit. What would he have said, had he lived to see it, about a school of Marxists who after succeeding in capturing the state power proceeded to make a state religion of Marxism, a religion whose articles of faith and their interpretation are watched over by the government, a religion, the criticism of which, nay, the slightest deviation from which, is sternly punished by the State; a Marxism ruling by the methods of the Spanish Inquisition, propagated with fire and sword, practicing a theatrical ritual, as illustrated by the embalmed body of Lenin: a Marxism reduced to the status not only of a state religion but of a medieval or oriental faith? Such a Marxism may indeed be called a doctrinaire fanaticism.“

„People who are liberals look upon the principles of Marxism as abstract dogma. They approve of Marxism, but are not prepared to practice it or to practice it in full; they are not prepared to replace their liberalism by Marxism. These people have their Marxism, but they have their liberalism as well - they talk Marxism but practice liberalism; they apply Marxism to others but liberalism to themselves. They keep both kind of goods in stock and find a use for each. This is how the minds of certain people work.“

—  Mao Zedong Chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China 1893 - 1976

Combat Liberalism (1937)
Eredeti: (zh-CN) 自由主义者以抽象的教条看待马克思主义的原则。他们赞成马克思主义,但是不准备实行之,或不准备完全实行之,不准备拿马克思主义代替自己的自由主义。这些人,马克思主义是有的,自由主义也是有的:说的是马克思主义,行的是自由主义;对人是马克思主义,对己是自由主义。两样货色齐备,各有各的用处。这是一部分人的思想方法。
