    ...that alleged quotation by Lenin.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

      somewhat apocryphal, although I read somewhere that Lenin is reported to have said it to a member of the Soviet Comintern ca. 1921.

      I do think it's funny as hell (in a black humor sort of way), mainly b/c it captures a dark truth about the 'profit motive.'

      Thanks for the annotation, though.
