Let no one charge that socialists have arrayed class against class in this struggle. That has been done long since in the evolution of capitalist
society. One class is small and rich and the other large and poor....One consists of capitalists and the other of workers. These two classes are at
war. Every day of peace is at the expense of labor. There can be no peace and good will between these two essentially antagonistic economic
classes.  We propose to destroy the capitalist and save the man. We want a system in which the worker shall get what he produces and the capitalist
shall produce what he gets.  
Eugene Debs

If the workers took a notion they could stop all speeding trains; every ship upon the ocean they can tie with mighty chains. Every wheel in the
creation every mine and every mill; fleets and armies of the nation, will at their command stand still.  
Joe  Hill

The future social organization should be carried out from the bottom up, by the free association or federation of workers, starting with the
associations, then going on to the communes, the regions, the nations, and, finally, culminating in a great international and universal federation. It is
only then that the true, life-giving social order of liberty and general welfare will come into being, a social order which, far from restricting, will affirm
and reconcile the interests of individuals and of society.
