I'd call it collectivism by the "Left" and the "Right"

although I might point back to the Lincoln presidency instead of Wilson. Lincoln also tried to institute an income tax and fiat currency, but both were short-lived. BTW, the Federal Reserve and the 16th amendment came about in 1913 (four years before the Bolshevik Revolution), so we may have preceded the Soviets in that regard.
