„Life has improved, and now as never before the doors to a happy and cultured life for all the peoples of our Union stand wide open.“

—  Vyacheslav Molotov Soviet politician and diplomat 1890 - 1986

Speech (10 January 1930) as quoted in The Communist International (1936) Vol. 13
Contexto: Life has improved, and now as never before the doors to a happy and cultured life for all the peoples of our Union stand wide open. We are already enjoying the first fruits of our victory and we see that an unparalleled rise in the standard of living and culture of all the peoples of the Soviet Union awaits us. And in spite of all this, we have not yet seen the last of people who in their blind hatred of the new world are planning the seizure and dismemberment of the Soviet Union. Well, what shall we say to them? It is true that we appeared in the world without the permission of these gentlemen, and undoubtedly against their wishes.... This means that the time has come when the old world must make way for the new.
