Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s life and times

If we look more closely, we see that any violent display of power, whether political or religious, produces an outburst of folly in a large part of mankind; indeed, this seems actually to be a psychological and sociological law: the power of some needs the folly of others. It is not that certain human capacities, intellectual capacities for instance, become stunted of destroyed, but rather that the upsurge of power makes such an overwhelming impression that men are deprived of their independent judgment, and…give up trying to assess the new state of affairs for themselves.

Karl Marx : The Man and His Work-The Constructive Elements of Socialism by Karl Dannenberg- 1918

When Marx went to eternal rest in 1883, already more than the proverbial baker's dozen had declared their allegiance to Socialism: it was the period when hundreds and thousands followed the standard of working-class emancipation—the dawn of modern capitalism, and the embryonic stage in the development of the modern labor movement. Today millions of disinherited all over the globe gather around the banner dedicated to the proletariat by Marx: a banner truly expressive of the demands of economic and social necessity, and symbolizing the ideals and historic mission of the working-class—the destruction of the political class state and the inauguration of the Industrial Republic.

Final Days of the Ld Isvar Chandra Vidyasagar-1891

At 4 A. M. the mournful funeral procession proceeded in the direction of the place of cremation by the side of the Bhagirathi. The uncovered stretcher with its majestic burden was borne on the shoulders of the son, grandsons, brothers, other relatives, and friends. On its way, the sorrowful cortege once stopped a while before the Metropolitan Institution building. Here Narayan Chandra cried out in loud, pathetic terms, and invoked the blessing of his parent, saying—'Oh! my beloved father, here stands your dear Metropolitan. Bless me from heaven—give me power to preserve your noble work.' The pathetic appeal so affected the processionists, that each of them was moved to a flood of tears. The procession moved on with, sad, slow steps, and at 5 O'clock reached the Nimtala cremation Ghat
