Hi everyone! This article claims that a general secretary of the Communist Party USA stated the following:

“The Communist attitude towards the Great Society can be summarized in an old saying that two men sleeping in the same bed can have different dreams. … We support these measures because we dream of socialism.”

However, I was not able to find a source for those claims. Hope you guys can help, thanks!

I dont see the first part of your quote anywhere. Although i dont find the saying odd at all.


the second half seems to come from 1966. i'm not going to sign up to that site though for full quote.

Just one question, how do you search for specific quotes like you did in your screenshot?

just put quotes around the text you are sure of.

i often break up alleged quotes into small bits of words, as one or two words might be off and ruins the whole search.
so in that case i pasted:

"We support these measures because we dream of socialism.” Great

into google. (bold not needed i just did it here for emphasis. )
