It is a well-known fact that when something bad happens, people generally tend to put the blame on somebody or something else, even if they only explain the reasons of it to themselves, which is, especially in the latter case, somewhat illogical. But why is it done?
It is generally considered to be “more” moral to love and care for the others, than to love and care for oneself; a person is supposed to be putting the interests of others above his own for the sake of the humankind’s prosperity or something like that. However, is it logical?
Fascism and communism are often described as diametrically opposite political systems and ideologies – extreme right and extreme left. However, there is also another point of view, according to which they both should be referred to as subtypes of one system, namely, totalitarianism. I support the latter point of view for a number of reasons.
