Marranos Nebraska 2059 Piercy, Marge. He, She and It. New York: Alfred A. Knopf (1991); pg. 4. "In the born-again Shintoism of Y-S [Yakamura-Stichen, a corporation], they were both marranos, a term borrowed from the Spanish Jews under the Inquisition who had pretended to be Christian to survive. Y-S followed a form of revivalist Shinto, Shinto grafted with Christian practices such as baptism and confession. Marranos in contemporary usage were Jews who worked for multis and went to church or mosque, paid lip service and practiced Judaism secretly at home. All multis had their official religion as part of the corporate culture, and all gruds had to go through the motions. Like Shira, Josh had the habit of lightint candles privately on Friday night, of saying the prayers, of keeping the holidays. "

Feher poked a finger at him and said, yeah, and under communism, it's vice versa. That got a good laugh. Popkin didn't like it, though.'

Marxism France 1977 Merle, Robert. Malevil. New York: Simon and Schuster (1973; original French ed. pub. 1972); pg. 365. "It was odd. Even though I wasn't a Marxist, he seemed to place more confidence in my judgment than in his own. And he looked very relieved suddenly. Although he could no longer aspire to the 'real Communism,' at least he could keep it enshrined in his mind as an ideal, a touchstone to which reality could be referred. "
Marxism galaxy 2300 Benford, Gregory. Against Infinity. New York: Timescape Books (1983); pg. 142. [1] "'Every civilization up until now has evolved because of internal contradictions--conflicts within it that forced change. Capitalism proceeded by contradiction to produce socialism--it was inevitable.'

'Uh-huh.' He was watching the light.

'The Marxists thought that under socialism, alienation and class warfare would stop. They ignored the fact that the dialectical model of change never predicted an end to contradictions, or to evolution. Socialism requires a bureaucracy, and that means an administrative class.. The administrators face a problem Marxism never discussed: how well socialism works, versus capitalism. What is the good of being exactly equal to everybody else, if that means you have to be poor? The last century has taught us--or rather, Earth, that socialism is less efficient than capitalism at producing goods.' "

Marxism galaxy 2300 Benford, Gregory. Against Infinity. New York: Timescape Books (1983); pg. 143. [3] "The waiter came, and Manuel reached eagerly for his drink...

'And therein lies the true comedy,' Gutierrez went on, picking up the thread as if there had been no interruption. 'You see, the Marxists always assumed the next step would complete the cycle of contradiction and change. It is so amusing! Because they could imagine no further change beyond socialism, they assumed--without thinking--that there would be none. They didn't notice that the dialectical model predicts no Final Revolution. There is instead an equilibrium between the two forms. So we get humankind--with refined, humanitarian socialism in the older, crowded core. And capitalism sprouting up like weeds at the edge.' "

Marxism galaxy 2300 Benford, Gregory. Against Infinity. New York: Timescape Books (1983); pg. 142-143. [2] "'So to stop socialism from sinking into the mud, the bureaucrats had to promote expansion--off-planet, out into the system. But socialism is an historical necessity that arises when you get a certain density of population. Once people spread out . . .' He opened his hands. 'The population density in the new worlds is low, of course, the dynamics of economics drives them to adopt individualist, capitalist measures. They must, to survive and prosper in harsh places. So the internal contradictions of socialism is that it must expand, to make up for its own inefficiencies. Expansion, though, produces capitalism at the frontiers. Your Settlement is really a small, communal capitalist unit. It interacts with Earthside through a market, not by edicts.' "
Marxism galaxy 2732 Simmons, Dan. Hyperion. New York: Doubleday (1989); pg. 56. [On the planet Hyperion.] "Their reaction to the cross certainly suggested that I had encountered a group of survivors of a once Christian colony--Catholics?--even though the data in the comlog insisted that the dropship of seventy colonists who had crashed on this plateau four hundred years ago had only Neo-Kerwin Marxists, all of whom should have been indifferent if not openly hostile to the old religions.

Marxism Ganymede 2300 Benford, Gregory. Against Infinity. New York: Timescape Books (1983); pg. 205. "The Aleph shifted, and Manuel stared at the place where Piet had been.

Marxism Haiti 2016 Goonan, Kathleen Ann. Crescent City Rhapsody. New York: Tor (2001; c. 2000); pg. 102. "'His name, according to his card, is Zion. Rastafarianism is a millenarian movement. It's not messianic. They don't believe that one of God's manifestations is going to save them and take them to heaven. I mean, Rob Marley said he felt like bombing a church once he knew that the preacher was lying. They are Marxist in their belief that organized religion is just a tool to oppress the masses, to make them feel as if being poor and downtrodden is a virtue and they'll be rewarded for their suffering in heaven. The Rastafarians believe there's going to be a golden age here on Earth. Like he said. And they really try to do something about that. You have to respect them for it. We can drop by his school--if that's what you're getting at.' "

'Ideology, sir'

'But if the material world and our method of manipulating it determine everything else, how can ideology happen? Where did they say it come from?'

'Some of them defined ideology as an imaginary relationship to a real situation. They acknowledged that imagination was a ppowerful force in human life.'

'But then they weren't materialists at all!' He swore with disgust. 'No wonder Marxism is dead.'

His tone was anything but approving. [Abraham] Lincoln found himself surprised; men who so emphatically disagreed with his positions seldom came so close to identifying their true nature. 'That is near the mark--near, but not quite on it, Colonel . . .?' he said.

'Roosevelt,' the cavalry officer answered impatiently. 'Theodore Roosevelt.' He scowled up at Lincoln through his gold-framed spectacles. 'How do you mean, sir, not quite on the mark. In what way am I in error?' The challenge in his voice declared that, like George Custer, he saw disagreement as affront.

Still, Lincoln judged the question seriously meant, so he answered seriously: 'A Marxian Socialist, Colonel Roosevelt, believes the revolution will come, no matter what measures be taken to prevent it. My view is, the revolution will come unless measures be taken to prevent it.' "

Marxism Montana 1881 Turtledove, Harry. How Few Remain. New York: Ballantine (1997); pg. 405. "'Socialist thought is divided on whether the proletarian revolution is inevitable,' Sorge said. 'The Marxian Socialists, now, believe it is, and--'

...'Here in the United States, the power of the ballot box gives th elaboring classes a power, or the potential for a power, that they lacked in the days when Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto, and in the places he knew best,' Lincoln said.

"'About Mr. Marx's theories in general, and the fate of the Manhattan Commune in particular Friedrich's generosity, in fact, made this current tour possible...

...'You knew Mr. Marx intimately, I believe.' In order to extract a given piece of information from Kriege, he knew, it was necessary to engage the man's dominant passion.

'Knew him? I was ther to greet him off the boat! He embraced me, and not a minute later had he borrowed twenty gold dollars, to pay for his rent in the Bronx!' Kriege assayed a sort of laught, strangled with abiding rage. 'He'd his Jenny with him, then, though the marriage didn't survive the revolution. . . . But he'd a Brooklyn Irish factory-girl in his bed when he expelled me from the Commune, sir, for preaching 'religionism and free-love'! Free-love indeed!' Kriege's large pale hands, with their unkept nails, plucked abstractly at a sheaf of papers. "

Oliphant thought of his friend, Lord Engels; it did seem extraordinary, that the brilliant textile-manufacturer should involve himself, however distantly, with people of this sort.

'There are factions within the Party . . .'

'Do go on.'

She always wears those suits that are almost uniforms--drab colors with tails to the backs of her knees. Never short tails, never the long ones.
