Best of all or worst? 

“Since slaves are the personal assets of the master he makes sure they are well fed and well medicated because the personal riches of the master depends on the well being of his slaves. 

So in many ways the system of slavery is more humane than the modern factory system where workers are underfed and given meager wages.”

The aforementioned argument was made by the the pro slavery ideologues when slavery was being abolished in the US. 
But when a fascist state makes arguments like it’s subjects have no rights over their bodies it’s simply trying to mix the worse of both the system. Because no slave owner would take the control of a slave’s body without assuming the responsibility of feeding him. 
From slavery they took the idea of controling one’s body. From factory system they took the concept of keeping the worker in destitution. And from democracy they took the name.
