David Cameron should learn to love Trotskyites
Mr Cameron criticised critics of the scheme, saying it was time to “stand up against the Trotskyites of the Right to Work campaign”.
But what did Trotsky have to say about compulsory labor? Jamie Kenny points out:
The very principle of compulsory labor service is for the Communist quite unquestionable. “He who works not, neither shall he eat.” And as all must eat, all are obliged to work. Compulsory labor service is sketched in our Constitution and in our Labor Code [...] The only solution of economic difficulties that is correct from the point of view both of principle and of practice is to treat the population of the whole country as the reservoir of the necessary labor power – an almost inexhaustible reservoir – and to introduce strict order into the work of its registration, mobilization, and utilization.
Moderate social democracy or death!
