Is there a breakdown to suggest which of the two blockchains should truly be considered "Bitcoin"? Lots of hate between sides, but is there anything technical that we can more substantially argue which is the true continuity of Bitcoin and which is the fork?

I've heard segwit => true Bitcoin as it attempts to keep power distributed among masses, but the progression (e.g. scaling) of the blockchain is also argued as the true Bitcoin.

This would all be a lot easier to put aside ~religion~ politics and just get to bare facts.
