Trotsky on state power

“The rich say: don’t touch state power; it is the sacred hereditary privilege of the educated classes. The Anarchists say: don’t touch it, it is an infernal invention, a diabolical device, don’t have anything to do with it. Both say: don’t touch it. But we say: don’t just touch it, take it in your hands, and set it to work in your own interests, for the emancipation of the working class.” —Trotsky
