Paul Varghese and Communism


“I do not say that I refuse to be convinced of the truth of your thinking. If you can convince me I am prepared to change my views. I am prepared to accept your angle of view and think with you. If you can show me that Soviet Communism is the way for the salvation of the world, the next letter will contain an application for membership in the communist party, and for appointment as a worker.”

– Paul Varghese

(Ambo, 23 June 1949)
