      I can remember a story he wrote about the state railway system. The

      old engineers unable to properly maintain the system due to a lack of

      resources lightened the loads carried, they were sent of to a gulag

      for failing to move enough freight. The next generation of engineers

      assured the state that the loads could be increased and destroyed the

      infrastructure in the process and joined their predecessors in the gulag.

      You would have to be unhappy being a slave in a communist ( or any

      other) regime. You would have to have a lot of guts to complain as well.
