State repression & out of control government are just part of the cycle & nature of political systems. The 20th Century was host to a new stage of the state, which was the industrial socialist totalitarian model, embodied by Nazi Germany, Communist Russia & Communist China. The revolutions against the old orders create a vacuum, which can then be quickly filled with something just as terrible, if not worse. The bureaucratic socialist governments tend towards a cold & mechanistic view of humanity, where people are reduced to numbers & their lives become statistics. Not unlike democracy, the socialist state claims to do best for the great mass of people & those that do not fit into this collective humanity must be transformed, sedated or destroyed.
