. Armchair internet know-it-alls seem to think that Google can teach them everything they need to know about this topic,


Did ya MISS this on wiki ?



Political scientists have frequently noted that a single left–right axis is insufficient for describing the existing variation in political beliefs, and often include other axes.


en.wikipedia.org...

By ALL means,

Please continuing trying to pin it on the right.

Yeah people.



The arrangement of positions along the left-right axis—progressive to reactionary, or conservative to liberal, communist to fascist, socialist to capitalist, or Democrat to Republican—is conceptually confused, ideologically tendentious, and historically contingent. And any position anywhere along it is infested by contradictions.


The Left-Right Political Spectrum Is Bogus



The left-right spectrum is often characterized in terms of two extreme poles. One way to see that this is incoherent is that these poles can be defined in mutually incompatible ways. It’s awfully strange that Rand Paul and John McCain belong to the same political party and are generally held to be on the same end of the political spectrum. I'd say they each disagree more profoundly and substantially with the other than either disagrees with Barack Obama, for example. Some of the most historically salient “right-wing” movements are monarchism, fascism, fundamentalism, and libertarianism, which have nothing in common except that they all have reasons to oppose Marxist communism, and vice versa. Yet they also all have similar reasons to oppose one another. Toss in David Brooks Burkeans, security-state neocons, and so on, and you have a miscellany of unrelated positions.


The measurement is FLAWED.

You think you brought something new? People have mentioned that few times here. One axis measurement is silly. Bring something new please.

That has been pointed out before but the OP and others continue to use left-right only.

This is a perfect example:

Please continuing trying to pin it on the right.

If the first part of the post is true then this part is meaningless.

What ever people.



National Bolshevism must strike some on the left as quite perplexing. After all, Bolshevism and Nazism — like fascism and socialism — are opposites, right? Read more at: www.nationalreview.com...




If you read my book, you’d know I consider this the greatest myth and/or lie of the 20th century (coming in a distant second: the idea that there is a difference between good flan and bad flan). Read more at: www.nationalreview.com...

If Wikipedia is your "go-to" source, then you might want to check out the first sentence of its definition of right-wing politics before lauding the "right wing" as some bastion of abolition of slavery:


Right-wing politics are political positions or activities that view some forms of social stratification or social inequality as either inevitable, natural, normal, or desirable, typically defending this position on the basis of natural law, economics or tradition.


Somewhat paradoxically, while I tire of seeing people bastardize political terminology, I shall never tire of pointing it out.

National Bolshevism does not incorporate any Bolshevik principles. It is entirely a right wing conceit. It does draw on Stalinism, but that is just the word used to describe Stalin's brand of Fascism.

The MSM/Academic complex has you totally sucked in.

Still no valid and unbiased "definitions".

Maybe if more people read it they would know LEFT/RIGHT had nothing to do with ideology.

But where people were seated.

Gasp!



The political term right-wing was first used during the French Revolution, when liberal deputies from the Third Estate generally sat to the left of the president's chair, a habit which began in the Estates General of 1789. The nobility, members of the Second Estate, generally sat to the right. In the successive legislative assemblies, monarchists who supported the Ancien Régime were commonly referred to as rightists, because they sat on the right side.

You'll find those definitions embedded within the text of a reply I tendered to you at least one day ago.

Did this post have a point? If so, it certainly failed to convey as much.

I can only remind you that you brought an ill-defined concept of right-wing politics to this discussion. My correction stands.

WOW You must be a genius. You have read and researched more than 40 sources, not to mention thousands of other sources.

I guess that's why they call you clever fox.

Sure did.

Everything about politics is 'bastardized' someone else's word.

And people should not take ANY of it as the 'gospel'.

You still can't show any clear and concise "sources" or even "definitions".

None of the "Academic" references have any verifiable facts.

I love how the KKK got tied in to 'fascism'.

Although It was the RIGHT WING that freed the slaves, Started a war for the emancipation.

The KKK was formed by the LEFT WING as political group in OPPOSITION of the RIGHT WING.



?????????????????????????
I'm sorry, but you obviously have little if any idea about American political history and how both the Democrats an Republicans have changed over the past one and a half centuries.

Now what sort of views did the wealthy landowners sitting at the King' s right hand have, do you suppose? Were they into social equality and the redistribution of wealth?
