Is anarchy the true Right-wing?

    I have been thinking, since Communism, the idea that everyone shares everything equally, is the ultimate left-wing government, would that make Anarchy the deffinitive right wing policy?

    The way I see it, in an anarchy, everyone fends for themselves (unless they want to help others). So would that make Anarchy/pure Capitlist society the opposite of Communism?

    On the other hand, I suppose a Fascism would be a Capitalist Government to the extreme. Where the people with the most money or power can control everyone else.

    So would anarchy, fascism, or what be the ultimate right policy?

    Fascism. Anarchy refutes government completely, whereas a true radical right would be pure dictatorship. If a system is based on no politics whatsoever, it's not really political system. . .

    I concur. This would be a good thread for us in MD.

    That sums up everything. Communist and Capitalist are organized. Anarchist don't even exist; Anarchy is in its own categlory. Its hard to call it right wing.

    See, your problem is that you think of the political spectrum as a linear thing whereas it's really a Cartesian Plane. The x axis determines the countries views on ruling their people, with the left normatively nearer to absolute Communism and the right being absolute Facism, but we also have the y axis. This determines the economic systems involved with the top normatively pure Socialism and the very bottom pure Libertarianism.

    It adds a lot of variables in there, and Anarchy is somewhere in there. Just because Anarchy rejects the government doesn't mean that it rejects system all together.

    I believe you are confusing a social condition (anarchy) with a political system (Communism) and there is no comparison in my opinion. Anarchy occurs when civil lawlessness/riot occurs (social condition) while Communism is a type of government (political system).

    I agree - politics on a 3D scale = cool - but Anarchy isn't the right wing in that sinario. Anarchy would oppose government all together.

    If thats how you discribe it, then anarchy should be where Communism is (as in a country with no ruler/rule to oppose a country with an absolute ruler/rule), and Communism being where Socialism is since its core theory is nobody owns anything, all is shared.

    I say anarchy itself is right wing though because it has eliminated the government, an extreme of the conservative practice of taking power away from the government and giving it to the people. However, anarchists themselves are extreme left wing because they work to radically change (eliminate) the government through force.

    Believeing there should be no goverment is as legitimate a political idea as beliving that a government should run everything.

    Malificus,
    I agree with InTheNet. Anarchy is a social condition that doesn't need a government of men for it to happen. This thread reminds me of a section from the book of Acts in the New Testament:
    The writer of this ancient writ is describing the very earliest appearances of the sect of Jewish followers of Jesus of Nazareth. They were under Roman rule and Jewish Law. Yet they seemed to have some form of communism that wasn't enforced by a government. This is perhaps an example of a social condition that could manifest under many different types of government.
    v/r,
    Carl
