Though understand here. People compare right wing here to US right wing
So they assume the US is full of relligious fundamentalists that think LGBT is sinful but are okay with cousin marriage and child brides.
alot of people compare to us
its weird cause they often misinterpret
What they dont realize, that the US has progressed so much, that Malaysia's liberal and progressive party is the right wing in the US
Is closer to the right wing in the US i mean
yea just one of the reasons i try not to use left-right cause other countries have differences
And well, I tend to say left and right in regards to the US unless specified otherwise
authoritarian vs libertarian is the more important axis anyways
And dosent help that the current US left candidates are authoritharian, but somehow, the right wing is very libertarian for some reason.
At least according to ISideWith
varies per candidate imo
they're both moderate authoritarian parties, but at the moment the right is less authoritarian than the left
The most authoritharian is Pence.
ANd hes leaning libertarian as well
probably because trump is in charge and he's more interested in getting us a wall than any other changes he might want
Actually, Trumps closest to center I check
Pence is the most conservative
But Trump is the most centrist.
Trump has his own quadrant. haha
According to the site at least.
It floats around.
Populism is right or left wing again?
It depends on the policy.
So more accurate to say neither
populism is dependent on public demand
Bernie and Trump both campaigned as a populist
Populism can be either Left or Right. It's based on passion and not policy.
Usually, popularist candidates gain power when people are dissatisfied with the current political order
That basically the U.S. lol
Gaius Julius Ceasar was a member of the populares
His death was very unpopular with the common folk
Just gonna lay it out there. I WILL find every opportunity to add a historical comment to every conversation
History repeats itself
The roman civil war that resulted in the dissolution of the republic and the formation of the empire, began with the normalization of political assassinations following the killings of the gracchi brothers.
