despotism is inevitable in all authoritarian and left wing countries. the system is designed to suppress the ambitions and power of anyone who reaches past a certain point, but those who are able to beat the system will become it's dictators. the system controls the public, the dictator controls the system. to control people's income, livelihood and the entire economy of a country takes tremendous amounts of power, power centered in the hands of a handful of individuals. do you actually trust any kind of authority with that kind of power? you shouldn't. it draws the most vile, corrupt people imaginable. people who wish to control the lives of others and enslave them to their will. freedom with responsibility is better than servitude without responsibility.
