They are. The amount of state control has nothing to do with it.

The UK was a centre-right police state until recently and is rapidly moving leftwards whilst entrenching state control of the populace and the power of the executive.

The "Scandanavian Model" is a centre-left democracy.

The Bush US was a right wing plutocracy with increasing "police state" overtones.

Stalin's USSR was a far-left police state. Nazi Germany was a dictatorial police state but economically centrist.

My point being that left and right are shades of economic and social policy. Mass murder of dissidents / Jews / other tribes is nothing to do with left and right.
