Neither of them are forms of Government. That needs to sink in for a wide spectrum of people.

Thinking that they are is a deception (self or otherwise), it is missing the obvious, and is how we end up with totalitarian tyranny.

A tyranny where everybody gets looted and pillaged, and no matter their means and no matter their station in Society, nobody is safe, whatever nonsensical label is slapped on what is being done to them.

And before that, it was a really awful place. So it won't necessarily remain trapped in this phase.

My uncle and aunt were a Dr and nurse there in the late 1960's/1970's, and my grandmother was worried whether they would make it out alive.
