Who is more authoritarian, the left or the right?

left

Side Score: 43
VS.

right

Side Score: 33

The left, hands down. They are the ones who want to rule your life and have more say-so over what you do and use Big Gov't to do it for them.

Big government is a right wing thing because if you think about it 100% to the left means everyone is on equal standing socially and 100% to the right would mean total stratification and class hierarchy.

How would you make everybody equally standing in society? It's not possible without the use of force as everybody is unequal and so fair differently through all walks of life. Just because some people fair far better economically, doesn't make it unfair. The left however does not want any actual diversity, the Khmer Rouge is a great example as to how they tried to equalise everything but couldn't because humans are not equal and so they ended up killing everyone lol

The Right here wants smaller government, it is the Left that wants BIG Gov't. You need to get your head straight.

The left wants to rule your life, at even a micro-managed level. They want to guilt, shame, coerce, manipulate, etc. into establishing control over people--ostensibly in the name of "compassion". Yeah--right.

It depends what you mean by right and left. If you go by the classical definition, then communism, socialism, fascism, monarchy and theocracy come under left, whereas liberalism, conservatism, libertarianism come under the right.

These days however all of these definitions have been mixed up by the left and now supported by all so you can’t really say.

By the classical standard. Right wing is freedom and left wing is authoritarian.

You are a lying RETARD and everything you say is RETARDED.

Opposed to liberalism, Marxism and anarchism, fascism is usually placed on the far-right within the traditional left–right spectrum

XD you're nuts. right wing= traditionalism and hierarchy so by definition anything progressive like liberalism that attempts to free people from oppressive traditions like slavery and the idea that you are better than me because you have a ding dong is left wing and anything that divides people into classes and groups is right wing such as fascism and, monarchy and theocracy.

Fascism, monarchy and theocracy are the opposite of communism and socialism because communism and socialism are egalitarian and democratic (collectivist) and fascism, monarchy, and theocracy are hierarchical (right wing).

Socialism and communism divides people into classes and groups too, yet its left wing. Conservatism, libertarianism is individualism yet it's right wing. This is why the modern left right divide is so confusing.

Fascism, monarchy and theocracy are the opposite of communism and socialism because communism and socialism are egalitarian and democratic (collectivist) and fascism, monarchy, and theocracy are hierarchical (right wing).

So you have just admitted as much. Collectivist opposes individualist. Egalistarian opposes freedom.

An understanding into hierarchies and the roles of liberals and conservatives in hierarchies. We need both liberals and conservatives. However that isn't what POLITICAL conservatism is. Conservatives (politically) are far closer to classical liberalism than the modern left.

So if you want we can divide the political compass by individualism (right) and collectivism (left)

Classical liberalism, libertarians, conservatives, anarchists are all individualists.

Socialists, fascists, communists are all collectivists.

They want science downgraded to a matter of opinion and equal classtime given to the Biblical version of creation.

Yep, and any right wingers throughout history who have been authoritarians they simply lie and claim were lefties. The right has become a joke in America because everything they say is lies.
