MARXISM - COMMUNISIM social and political ,economic principles and policies advocated by Karl Marx. Which by the way includes a graduated income tax ,a central bank and other principles that we currently have in the unitedstates to some degree.It,also calls for a classless society and yet it has a ruling class.
It,also calls for everyone to get paid the same no matter what kind of work they do or how hard the work is.and it doesn't account for the ability or skill one pocesses.The means and distribution of goods and services is all government controlled While this last aspect of marxism may seem desirable by some.If,everyone gets paid the same no matter what skill level and knowledge they poccess,it discourages cooperation by those individuals to the benefit all .If,individuals are not paid what they are worth there is no Incentive for them to do their best.This is worse than socialism in some ways.

3.MARXIST - COMMUNIST - Of or relating to another Individual or group of Individuals based on need
4.FASCIST - A person who belives in a dictitorial social political system.with or without the help of corporations.More often with their help.
Capital has to come from either Individuals or groups of Individuals
The problem with this system in it's purest form is those who have the wealth are allowed to lord it over those with less wealth.The wealth may have come from both legal as well as illegal sources
Wealthy plutocrats historically got wealthy selling opium to China and weapons and mercenaries to fight in foreign wars as well as human capital such as slaves .
.Another problem with this system is cronism where those who make deals with eachother tend to gain wealth to the disadvantage of the majority of society.They have historically taken advantage of those less fortunate.Sometimes to the benefit of the disadvantaged Oftentimes to their furthur disadvantage.Where they would have been better off living self subsitance lives off the land than to pay to live in cities and made dependent on their employers for their continues livelyhood. A kind of modern slavery.
Behind the scenes arraingements have always been used to keep wealth in the hands of a few good old boys.
One example is the way an Individual or group of Individuals - conspire to take control over what should belong to all of the people.Things like land,water,the means of food production,and all other mutually beneficial activities in public and private busineses that use the assets we all need.
No wealth of any source has come without someone working for it This is true in Capitaism to the greatest degree and yet even in capitalism their are those who make their wealth by taking unfair advantage of those less wealthy than they are.through corporate takeovers,illegal price fixing and closed bidding on government selling of assets that belong to everyone.. Even with the money we use to exchange goods and services with
CAPITALIST's fund wars and sell weapons to those engaged in warfare.without reguard to poitical or patriotic views.Because it matters little to them who wins.Which ever side wins they never lose.
The stockmarket is the same way.Those who transact with buyers and sellers on Wallstreet never lose.They are like casinos that are calculated to win no matter what.
CAPITALIST'S are more subtle in how they go about controlling the majority
They could care less what other Ideologies do as long as they can control the wealth.
MONARCHIES AND OLIGARCHIES still exist .They can be benevelent, tyranical or Draconian in nature or a combination of all three.Sometimes they can appear to be one of the three.and sometimes more than one.It's up to each and everyone of us to decide which one they really are.
