The fact that you genuinely think that any political system can be analyzed on a one-dimensional scale confirms everything I've suspected about you.

Your ideas about politics are either ignorant or stupid. I don't care which you pick.


Did I say that?

I don't think I ever did. I did say that this is the left/right axis.

Just because you want to think this is the only one so that you can stroke your ego and think I only see a single possible axis to confirm your own notions about my intellect or lack thereof says as much about you as anything else.

No, it's just a concept and isn't implemented in any country.

Self-education is the only education because it never stops.

"Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school."

-Albert Einstein


LOTS of people who have educations (college or advanced degrees) continue their education. It's actually required that they do so, in order to keep their credentials. It's called "continuing education."

But on that note - yes, a person who has been taught HOW TO LEARN, and to think CRITICALLY about what they are seeing/reading has a better chance of not being 'indoctrinated'. A high school drop-out who KNOWS HOW TO do research, and use the internet to keep up with the current knowledge is educated - educated to NOT fall for the crap from the MSM.

Countries are Leftist.

Countries do nothing for production and make crony cartels and central banks.

Countries must be dealt with, but they have no reason to be except as a foil against other countries.

Countries are a legacy from the might-makes-right past.

Did you not get to go to college?
That's a shame.
Education really helps people who buy into propaganda to NOT BUY INTO IT anymore. But, I understand if your family wasn't able to pay for it.



I think you saw the exposure of the wiki page Fascism and are feebly attempting to diminish and erase the thought.



Fascism (/fæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism[1][2] that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy during World War I, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, and Anarchism. Fascism is usually placed on the far-right within the traditional left–right spectrum.[3][4]



Take notice how they establish a "rock solid" definition with 4 references ( [1]+[2]+[3]+[4] )

Then look deeper into those so called references and see how cleverly they elude to books.

Books that are more than likely just simple novels in reality.

The hidden references exposed

So, you're all getting all "pendantic" (look it up if you don't know what 'pedantic' means) rather than addressing the real life issues facing the USA at this point in time. Because...........

education.

But this topic is about Fascism and where it "fits in".

You are cleverly avoiding this like the plague.

The wiki file is clearly biased and I bet they won't allow edits on the "definition" either.

Maybe you can study those books and present a valid rebuttal?

Why?
What is the point?
This country is a mess. "Definitions" have very little to do with anything going on.

You tried to make it look like Leftists are Fascists, which is clearly not true.
Again - education. Get some.

Then, according to you, Fascism can't be on the right, because the right does not exist.

Therefore it must be on the Left.

Here's the real cash spending charts.

Obama has out-spent Bush and he ain't done yet.



you still have time to edit your post


Why would I?

You are counting the 2009 budget as Obama.

That's Bush's budget. The 2009 budget is set the year before. Just like the 2001 budget is Clinton's (also the last one with a budget surplus).

Notice that under Obama, the budget hardly budged - it went up in 2011 and then went down.

Look at Bush's budgets: not one decreased.

So tell me, in light of this evidence, who actually increases the size of government?

No, according to you.

Based on:

My definition of the Right.

Social behavior that respects the rights of others. Anarcho-Capitalism.

Its a left issue because of the government involvement.

Do elaborate.

Which states were resisting the recognition of marriage, again?

I seem to recall them being Republican states... and if Republicans are on the Right, then wouldn't they be resisting legal recognition of gay/lesbian marriages?
