Khrushchev declared: “[…] We must take a shovel and dig a deep grave, and bury colonialism as deep as we can”. Later, on August 24, 1963, Khrushchev remarked in his speech inYugoslavia, “I once said, ‘We will bury you,’ and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you,” a reference to the Marxist saying, “The proletariat is the undertaker of capitalism”, based on the concluding statement in Chapter 1 of the Communist Manifesto: “What the bourgeoisie therefore produces, above all, are its own grave-diggers. Its fall and the victory of the proletariat are equally inevitable.”
We went over the cliff.
