    a form of faux-left fascism... people did not have much say in what they were told to do or the decisions made in their name...

    An apparachnik and secret police nobility with a secular Czar ruling via fear and violence replacing a Hereditary monarchy which ruled via a hereditary nobility which ruled via the threat of force and violence... not all that much of a change under the surface.

    Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie (hah...)

    •  you're looking at the political side (0+ / 0-)

      socialism is a economic, not political model. If the government runs industry, it's socialism

      capitalism - private entities run industry

      socialism - government runs industry. Government requires the existence of some sort of ruling class

      communism - the people, in common, run industry. Communism according to Marx also has a (non)political part where there are there is a classless society. If society had classes then it would stand to reason one class would have greater pull over what industry did than another
