Arguments

  • Sure, extremes on any side of the political spectrum are bad. I really don't see anyone disagreeing with your position. 
  • I am very far right; I believe that, ideally, a government should be abolished, and realistically, a government should have no other function than to guarantee people basic human rights.

    A very far left would be an extreme form of communism, where also the government plays a small role, if any - but, instead of the individual rights defining the society, we have extreme collective rights surpassing any possible individual rights. 

    A very far right would be something akin to the wild west of the 19th century, where there is you and your farm, and it is up to you and only you to defend your interests from would-be interlopers.
    A very far left would be a typical tribe from pre-civilization times: the tribe as a whole has full control over the individual, and the economy is based not on a consensual exchange, but, rather, on the principle of reciprocity, where one's influence is directly proportional to their contribution to the tribe's wealth.

    Are they equally bad? I do not think it is a fair question. They arise in very different circumstances; you cannot just take a society and first try one, and then the other, in it. The society defines which of these two, if any, has a chance to even be tried legally.

    In my view, the far left is the end of humanity, as it collapses it down to a cattle, a hive mind, a colony of ants.
    The far right is what I hope humanity will end up as, because it is the only possible system in which a human individual can live the life on their own terms. 

    As such, no, they are not equally bad; in fact, the far right is infinitely better than the far left. The far left is a totalitarian dystopia; the far right is the apex of the ideas of individual freedom and liberty, the concepts that define the modern system of values in civilized states.

  • @McSloth Thank you. America and the world are so divided right now. Sad.
