Today many of the worst totalitarian states are democracies—people’s democracies, so-called. They are Communist states wherein by doctrine, the government exists for and draws its power from the proletariat, or the workers. In practice, however, they are dictatorships which pay lip service to the people and obtain their power from the barrel of a gun. The Soviet leaders tell the people of Russia that Communism is the rule of the people. In America, our leaders tell us the same. But in fact, a power elite is ruling both Mother Russia and Mother America.
