Transcript From the moment when party tradition with some and fear of it with others, cease holding the official party together, and hostile forces break through to the surface, state economy will suddenly feel the full force of the political contradictions. Every trust and every factory will cancel the plans and directives coming from above in order to insure their interests by their own means. Contracts between single factories and the private market, behind the back of the state, will become the rule instead of the exception. The struggle between the factories for working forces, raw materials, sales markets will automatically call forth among the workers the struggle for better working conditions. The plan principle inevitably liquidated in this manner, would not only signify the re-establishment of the internal market but also the disruption of the foreign trade monopoly. The managements of the trusts would quickly approach the position of private owners or agents of foreign capital, to which many of them would be compelled to turn in their struggle for existence. In the village, where the forms of collective farms which are not very capable of offering resistance, would hardly have had time to absorb the small commodity producers, the collapse of the plan principle would precipitously unleash the elements of primitive accumulation. Administrative pressure would be unable to save the situation if only for the fact that the bureaucratic apparatus would be the first victim of the contradictions and centrifugal tendencies pressing outward. Without the spiritual and cementing force of the Communist party, the Soviet State and planned economy would consequently be condemned to collapse. 29
