Do you agree that collectivism and authoritarianism are the two most dangerous things? Why or why not?
In my honest opinion, whether it be a far right or a far left ideology, including fascism and communism, they all are rooted in same thing, so although they may be different, I view them all as essentially the same, in a way: ideologies that are rooted in authoritarianism and collectivism and as a result consequently violate rights to life, liberty, and private property.
I can’t think of any evil ideology that doesn’t fit collectivism and authoritarianism. Communism? Yes. Fascism, including Nazism? Yes. White supremacy? Yep. Radical Islamism? Yep. So, are authoritarianism and collectivism not at the core of many of the world’s problems, at least in this context? I think so, but I wanna hear what y’all think.
