Through every botched practical application of social science there exists a mistrust in people. Fascism holds that an individual can and should not think for themselves, and must think and act in the same manner as its ruler. Communism/socialism holds that an individual must share equally with their community. Neither of these practical applications trust that an individual will act out of communal interest and self interest simultaneously. The two are not mutually exclusive. The practical application of these top down governments will not accept this paradox of the human spirit because it is born out of the rational mind. That is why stringent utopic ideals applied from the top down will always fail. Governments with the most flexibility for the individual will succeed. But you need a foundation for these individuals, healthcare, employment and housing. I'm out.
