Transcript transmission of orders over the different branches of the State framework. Or he supervises the execution of the order by the lowest category in the social scale: the producer. The "employee" transcribes into figures and formulae everything accomplished around him, in his locality and region. But he also draws up statistics on what is done against the will of the center. His figures and reports serve as a basis for the orders of tomorrow, helping to formulate the organization or the repression that the brains of the Plan decide on. The "employee" is the middle class of the new regime. The little "employee" is a pariah. He is hated by the worker. Yet his standard of living is often below that of the workers, and it is very hard for him to rise to something better. The middle "employee", however, is quite a privileged individual. For as a group he touches at one extreme the standard of living of the higher-ups. Furthermore, he has not only to "obey"; sometimes he commands a more or less important group of workers. He does not have to do piece-work or sweat at the belt. He senses himself to be more or less bound to the existing State power, of which he is really a small cog. The Responsible-Specialist We use this term to designate all those who profit by their high function in a society where the enjoyment of social and economic privileges is determined by what the Russians call "functions." There are many specialists in Russia. Some have always existed; others are the special creation of the Soviet regime. The specialists we know—engineers, architects, jurists, doctors, professors, army officers, exist there as elsewhere. A new type of specialist has been created by the new regime, where he is indispensable: the agitator, the organizer of the masses, the artist, the State writer, the propagandist of the last order from above—in a word, the "engineers of the soul" extolled by Stalin himself. The economists of the Plan also constitute a new type of specialist. The responsible-specialist is a specialist who besides possessing professional knowledge and a diploma has the responsibility for running an important wheel of the social machine. The directors of factories, the heads of large establishments, high officials, commanding officers, managers of large newspapers, the big shots of the trade unions and Soviets: they are responsible-specialists. Today the specialist is recruited from among the young. It is the young specialist of worker origin who is most representative of his kind in 1937. He was born with the new regime. His kingdom on earth arrived with the new regime. He who attains one of the mentioned responsible posts must perforce be for the "directed economy" and help with all his might its consolidation and progress. What does it matter to him if every turn of the special wheel of the social mechanism whose handle manipulates, crushes the serfs under it. The same turn of the wheel that crushes the industrial serfs below opens for him a wide field of activity and the perspective of an unequalled future. 60
