Today all Americans use one of these two systems to get what they want. Talk to an American and you are either talking to a little Stalin or a little Hitler.
As an animal, mankind lives in the same system of dominance and subservience as other animals. Self interest is the only universal incentive nature provides. Predators, to facilitate survival, first try to live off the efforts of others. They hunt or work only when there are no other options.
Human beings look first to government to sustain them. When that option is not available they are truly industrious.
