- Governmental expenditures increased by leaps and bounds with the growing pauperization of the people; for the growing staffs of Bolshevist officials were utterly incompetent, a large army of mercenaries was required in order to keep down the ever- increasing number of insurrections and the ceaseless attacks from many foreign foes, enormous subsidies had to be paid to Bolshevist workingmen, regardless of the fact that the factories were producing sometimes little and sometimes nothing, and, finally, the Lenine government spent great sums in revolutionary propaganda in the different countries of the world. - "The Red Conspiracy", Joseph J. Mereto.
- It is demonstrated that the pauperization of the feebler rural population went on apace by the passage of poor- laws under Elizabeth, which, in the Middle Ages, had not been needed and, therefore, were unknown. - "The Emancipation of Massachusetts", Brooks Adams.
- He had very honestly tried to examine the thing all round; and had reasoned thus: If I keep this quarry open, I am really admitting the principle of pauperization, since I naturally look to each of my estates to support its own house, grounds, shooting, and to contribute towards the support of this house, and my family, and racing stable, and all the people employed about them both. - "The Patrician", John Galsworthy.
