Welcome back. Don't be such a stranger. Hopefully you'll make up for lost time.
I don't know how "decent" these are, but here are a few that mention it...

We rail at trade, but the historian of the world will see that it was the principle of liberty; that it settled America, and destroyed feudalism, and made peace and keeps peace; that it will abolish slavery.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882) US philosopher, poet, essayist
"Journals," 1909-1914, entry for Jan 1844.

"In the information age, you don't teach philosophy as they did after feudalism. You perform it. If Aristotle were alive today he'd have a talk show."
~Timothy Leary

In democracy it's your vote that counts. In feudalism, it's your count that votes.
~tagline

The ideological and social system of feudalism has a place only in the museum of history. The ideological and social system of capitalism has also become a museum piece in one part of the world (in the Soviet Union), while in other countries it resembles "a dying person who is sinking fast, like the sun setting beyond the western hills", and will soon be relegated to the museum.
~Chairman Mao Tse-tung
"On New Democracy" (January 1940), Selected Works, Vol. II, pp. 360-61

The Americans still think that feudalism rules the world and therefore demand that Iran explain its handling of the hijacking affair. Iran explains nothing to anyone but God.
