A fine example of Marxism-Leninism:

“Comrades, none of us wants to be or can be right against the party. In the last analysis, the party is always right, because the party is the sole historical instrument that the working class possesses for the solution of its fundamental tasks. […] I know that no one can be right against the party. It is only possible to be right with the party and through it since history has not created any other way to determine the correct position. The English have a proverb: My country right or wrong. We can say with much greater historical justification: whether it is right or wrong in any particular, specific question at any particular moment, this is my party.” (Trotsky, 13th Congress, 1923)
