Yoram Barzel zum Mythos der "volkseigenen Betriebe":
"The claim that private property has been abolished in Communist states and that all property there belongs to the state seems to me to be an attempt to divert attention from who the true owners of the property are. It seems that these owners also own the rights to terminology."
