What is to you the worst/most terrifying ideology?

Postby The USOT » Thu Aug 30, 2012 2:13 pm

Pretty simple question.

Personally off the top of my head it has to be something akin to National Bolshevism.
Whilst the ideology itself does not appear to have any consitency whatsoever, it seems to generally be a blanket term for people who like the extreme xenophobia and racial policies of Hitler whilst promoting the economic and totalitarian ideals of Joseph Stalin.

What is to you the most terrifying ideology?
Eco-Friendly Green Cyborg Santa Claus

Contrary to the propaganda, we live in probably the least materialistic culture in history. If we cared about the things of the world, we would treat them quite differently. We would be concerned with their materiality. We would be interested in their beginnings and their ends, before and after they left our grasp.

National Socialism. It combines the worst left-wing and right-wing ideas into a horrifying ethos of hatred and state-sanctioned violence against minorities.

That comes in a very close second for me. The only reason that I didn't pick it is that for all of its faults, Objectivism at least gives lip service to the concept of individual freedom.

Anything authoritarian in general.

And while not necessarily scaring me, I don't get the appeal of right-wing conservatism either. (Too much of it just seems to boil down to selfishness. I guess it could also creep me out if it's expressed in an extremist way.)

Basically, on the political compass, anything in any way above that line separating "authoritarian" from "libertarian" scares me, and the closer to the top the more terrifying and worse it is.

Tea Party Conservatism. Nazism and Stalinism are probably worse (alright, not really), but at least they're discredited ideologies.

Ideologies don't scare me, people do.

So the one that has the most aggressive, large and stupid members.

I guess neo nazis I don't know.
we, unlike the bourgeoisie, have nothing to lose and therefore our expression will be the only honest one, our words will be the only challenging ones and our art will be the one revolutionary expression. We need new noise and new voices and new canvases to become something more than the last poets of a useless generation.
