Capitalism is inevitable. Today, of course, we

the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie (that's
you and me) will have to be put to sleep. So
we shall begin by launching the most spectacu-

electrifying overtures and unheard of concess-

be friends. As soon as their guard is down we
shall smash them with our clenched fists.'
