Obey and Eat

In a country where the sole employer is the State, opposition means death by slow starvation. The old principle: who does not work shall not eat, has been replaced by a new one: who does not obey shall not eat.
Leon Trotsky (1937, The Revolution Betrayed: What Is the Soviet Union and Where Is It Going?)
