My name is Rangerjs1 and from the United States and currently reside there.

I am a Marxist-Leninist and believe we must put all effort towards the promotion and propagation of Scientific socialism and that Communism is the only path forwards for us as a species.

I speak English as my primary and first language and speak/am continuing to learn Spanish as my second language.

I have been an atheist since the age of 6 when I learn about evolution and rejected Christianity on the basis that intelligent design had been disproven by the theory of evolution. I therefore, on the same basis, reject all non-materialistic analysis of the world. I have also become an antitheist due to a belief that religion causes great harm to the working class.

I have been vegan since the age of 13 when I read Animal Liberation and came to the conclusion that it was inappropriate for humans to exploit animals for our own pleasure.

I will try to contribute to Prolewiki in whatever way I can though primarily I try to focus on history.

I joined Prolewiki on June 26, 2023 and became a trusted editor on July 31, 2023.


“We must choose between champagne for a few or drinking water for all.”

“Capitalism is the arsonist of our forests.”

— Thomas Sankara

“We must recognize today that it is normal for the wealthiest to be the greatest thieves. When a poor man steals it is merely a theft, a petty crime -- it is solely about survival and necessity. The rich are the ones who steal from the treasury, customs duties, and who exploit the people.”

— Thomas Sankara

“The revolution and women’s liberation go together. We do not talk of women’s emancipation as an act of charity or out of a surge of human compassion. It is a basic necessity for the revolution to triumph.”

— Thomas Sankara

“When the people stand up, imperialism trembles.”

— Thomas Sankara

“My God is none other than the people. Only the popular masses are omniscient and omnipotent and almighty on earth. Therefore my lifetime motto is: ‘The people are my God.’”

— Kim Il-Sung, Reminiscences: With the Century

“Socialism is a human ideal, an inevitable course of historical development, and therefore it is perfectly clear that socialism will rise again in the end.”

— Kim Il-Sung, Reminiscences: With the Century

“The people are the masters of the revolution in each country. It is like putting a cart before the horse that foreigners carry out the revolution for them. The revolution can neither be exported nor imported.”

— Kim Il-Sung

“All exploiting classes, after all, constitute a reaction against history; they are the target of revolution.”

— Kim Jong-il, On the Juche Idea

“Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.“

— Karl Marx, A Contribution to the Critique of Hegel’s Philosophy of Right

“One good schoolmaster is of more use than a hundred priests.“

— Thomas Paine

“Where knowledge is a duty, ignorance is a crime.”

— Thomas Paine, Public Good

“We live to improve, or we live in vain“

— Thomas Paine

“Have these gentlemen ever seen a revolution? A revolution is certainly the most authoritarian thing there is; it is the act whereby one part of the population imposes its will upon the other part by means of rifles, bayonets and cannon — authoritarian means, if such there be at all; and if the victorious party does not want to have fought in vain, it must maintain this rule by means of the terror which its arms inspire in the reactionists.“

— Frederick Engels, On Authority

“I can hardly believe that it took a revolution to teach the world that extreme disparities in wealth lie at the root of many ills and crimes, but we are not the less convinced that the realization of an equality of fortunes is a visionary’s dream.”

— Maximilien Robespierre

“I leave to the oppressors of humanity a terrible testament, which I proclaim with the independence befitting one whose career is so nearly ended; it is the awful truth: ‘Thou shalt die!’”

— Maximilien Robespierre

“The United States appear to be destined by Providence to plague America with misery in the name of liberty.“

— Simón Bolívar
