    Do you find the various political spectrum charts useful or do you think they just sow confusion?

    I find them confusing. For example some put anarchism on the far left and others put it on the far right.

    Its all a lie. There is no spectrum in the first place. You have to look at government as a single edifice that's placed in the way of liberty.

    Makes sense. I've given up on left/right thinking. People can't even agree on what is 'left' and what is 'right'.

    anarchism in far right ? wtf ? i never seen that.... it's fucking stupid and contradictory...

    right is about strong government, traditional values, conservatism, nationalism and capitalism... left is all about the opposite : social change, progressism, equality, free public services, etc

    anarchism is definatly leftish, except anarcho-capitalism...

    yes the political spectrums are useful and it is a good indication of the ideas of a groups or a party.... but you have to read the details of their project to understand the real meaning of it...

    In Australia, there has been a lot of talk about "The most left wing government in Australian history", like that its a bad thing. They dont bother to explain why its a bad thing, they just seem to talk about it like its the boogie man. God forbid the general population should actually WANT a leftist government... But lets face it, these guys are pretty center-right anyway.

    Here is an example of a political spectrum that puts anarchism on the far right.

    "Towards the middle of the political spectrum can be found the type of government limited to it's proper role: protecting the rights of the people. That's where the constitution of the United States is."

    "without law there can be no freedom."

    Socialism is bad, anarchy is chaos, the American government is perfect.

    Any questions?

    Needing a chart to tell you what kind of anarchist you are is lame.

    Pretty much this. Basically like genres of music, saying a band is rock will give you an idea in your head on what they may sound like but to truly understand the band you gotta listen to their music.
