    Are you implying that there is a difference?

    Perhaps (I'm hoping this isn't a troll post) the understanding is still in the names. Communisms don't elect their leaders. An oligarchy of a few appoints and affirms these positions.

    Democratic socialism, as I understand it, still requires elected office for a number of the chief positions in government.
