Stalin for today: what do the capitalists want?

Do you want to know what the capitalists want?
All power to the capitalists—that is what they want.

Do you want to know what the capitalists want?
The triumph of the interests of their purses, even if it
means the doom of Russia—that is what they want.

6 August, 1917, Collected Works, vol. 3, pp. 203 and 206. (It is worth noting that by this stage Stalin already had a rather highly developed sentence production.)
