  1. The secret is that there are no “axes of the political spectrum” and if you are trying to determine the affiliation of a particular party or political party. if you move along these axes, then you will make a mistake by choosing a false criterion. There is a Western esoteric tradition that clearly explains where the right is and where the left is. Fascists and National Socialists are definitely left-wing, as are the Commie, the BLM, antifa, and absolutely all the political forces of modern Russia.

  2. The red-brown ones are extremists. They are located so far along the edges of the political spectrum that these edges merge (circle, yes). At the same time, commies are traditionally considered to be extremely left-wing, and fascists and Nazis are considered to be extremely right-wing. Anarchists – somewhere between them, there is already “left/right” – nothing at all.

  3. Fascists – extreme right, a generic name for extreme-right totalitarian ideologies and regimes (falangism, chortism, Italian fascism, German National socialism). All these modes are distinguished by the following features::

    1. “Chiefdom”, a rigid pyramid structure of the organization of parties with a single leader at the head, who holds the formal post of head of state.

    2. Ideology: orientation vector. In fact, the image of a “mythical national glorious past” is imposed on the population – that is, a reference to the Roman Empire (for the Italian fascists) and the “Aryan Hyperborea” for the Nazis. Usually, the story is distorted and lengthened, and sometimes it is simply made up.

    3. Ideology: general: nationalism, super-statism, the idea of pan-European unity in the face of” threats from the West and East”, the idea of” eternal values”, a return to them.

    4. Image of the enemy: the enemy is mostly external, internal enemies are few and perceived by official propaganda as his “messengers” to “corrupt the nation”.

    5. Militarism – all such movements prepare (and conduct) aggressive wars of conquest, or participate in wars on the side of stronger political movements. So, Italian fascists and Spanish falangists participated in World War II on the side of the Nazis, Italian troops held the flanks near Stalingrad, Franco's “blue division” participated in the siege of Leningrad.

    6. Social base: As a rule, the base for right-wing radical regimes and ideologies is the “middle class” – civil servants, officers, skilled workers, intellectuals, as well as part of the upper class (mainly the old military aristocracy and financial circles associated with the production of weapons).

    7. Attitude to the left: sharply negative. Communists and social-democrats, even moderates , are all enemies of the nation and the leader, apostates. They are punished, imprisoned, executed, and killed without trial.

    8. The attitude towards the” market economy ” and private ownership of the means of production is positive. Capitalism is declared part of traditional values, and any encroachments on private property are suppressed. The exception is private property and the personal property of the “enemies of the nation”, it is essentially appropriated by the state.
