Communism is a radical form of statism that is totalitarian/authoritarian.
Racism is a form of collectivism that ascribes moral and political significance to an individual’s race and/or ancestry.
Anarchism is not a form of capitalism; anarchism is a form of collectivism, where individual rights are subject to the rule of competing gangs.
“State capitalism” is not capitalism, but capitalism crippled by statism (government controls).
