They’re not even Marxists/communists anymore. Just a power-grab by people who consider themselves upper-class and want to live well on the peasants’ labor. That’s all. No ideology, no ‘system’, nothing.
Just force the taxpayers to hand over $$$$$ and then live like kings.

I wish you were right, squarebarb - but they’re starting to feel like old fashioned communists to me too...

I believe what we have before us is a Kleptocracy. Kleptocracy, alternatively cleptocracy or kleptarchy, (from Greek: κλέπτης - kleptēs, "thief" and κράτος - kratos, "power, rule", hence "rule by thieves") is a form of political and government corruption where the government exists to increase the personal wealth and political power of its officials and the ruling class at the expense of the wider population, often without pretense of honest service. This type of government corruption is often achieved by the embezzlement of state funds.
