Talking About Politics: LEFT WING & RIGHT WING


I left my heart in
San Francis-… Hi. James from engVid. I’d like to do a lesson
today with you on politics. I know, you’re used to grammar and vocabulary,
but it’s always good to expand your horizons, that means your learning abilities and look
at things that you may not need today but you will need in the future, especially when
you have, you know, educated conversations. In your own languages you often speak about
religion, politics, sexual relations, and in this lesson what I want to teach you is a
way to understand English terms, what they mean to us when we hear them and what we’re
trying to tell you when we’re saying them. That way you can get into political conversations,
and that doesn’t mean, you know, who’s right, who’s wrong, but be able to explain where
you’re from, what it’s like, and where we’re from and maybe understand
each other a little better. Are you ready? Let’s go to the board. I said I left my heart
in San Francisco. There’s a reason for it. Notice E says: “I’m a lefty.” Quick story for you
so you understand. A long time ago back in England
there were two houses. There’s the queen, I’m sure you probably know
that England has a queen, and they let the common people vote and there would be one
side where the people with title, or princes, and counts, and dukes would sit; another
side where the common people would sit. I’m wondering if you can figure
out which side which sat. Blah, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I know, difficult. Let me explain. So if you were the king or queen you sat in the
middle, and you’d have your nobles, that’s your knights, your kings, your dukes, your princes,
barons; on the other side the common people. Well, I’ll let you know. This is my right side. On the right side the barons, and the kings,
and the dukes would sit; on the left side would be the common people. After a while what happened was people started
referring to people on politics as right and left. Why? Because on the right side, the nobles, the
kings, the princes, they wanted things to stay the same. They liked what they had, they didn’t
want to have anything to change. Of course, the common people who are on the
left side, they were the ones who had money and they were paying for things and not really
seeing things change, and they were like: “Hey, if we’re paying, we
should get to change things.” So this became known as “left wing” and “right
wing” because it was in the house of politics where the king would sit, there
was a left side and a right side. Today’s lesson is going to explain to you
what that old way of thinking has changed into in the modern day,
and where we sit now. You ready? Let’s go to the board. Okay. You see this thing here? It’s called a pendulum. A pendulum is basically you can have a string
with a rock, and once you move it, it goes back and forward, back
and forward, and swings. Politics, which is the business of people
being together, “polis” meaning people. That’s what it means. Politics. The people choose, and often sometimes they
change in the way they look at things. Center is when the
pendulum isn’t moving. Center. And as you can think, it’s
probably a nice place to be. But there’s more movement or activity when
the pendulum goes up to the right or up to the left. That’s when we see
a lot of changes. And it’s good to understand what terms
are used and how they affect us. So let’s start with… Well, let’s start with the
left, the common people. All right? Most of you would know the extreme
version if you’ve heard of it… Or let’s go here first. When we talk about left, we talk
about all for one and one for all. If you’re French, it’s
the three musketeers. One for one and one for all. It means we all work together for a
good community or a better community. No one person is
above the community. No one person is better
than the community. Okay? So that’s all for one. But we all will work for the individual, but
the community is the most important part. And that will help you understand the most
extreme form of left, left-sided politics which is communism,
which is communityism. Right? This is the most extreme form. An example of this would be in
1918 to 1991 in the U.S.S.R. We now call it Russia. Okay? What this means is the government is in control
of everything; the economy, how people make money, and how
land is given out. And the government tries to give
everybody the same amount of land. Everybody, I know it’s crazy, but hey,
that’s what they’re supposed to do. Everybody gets the same amount of land, the
same amount of money, and everybody gets jobs, and everybody does what they like to
do to help the community get better. That’s the book
communism, by the way. Real communism doesn’t work that way,
but that’s the way it should be. Normally when we think of communism we think
of the economy and how things work, which is the government controls how
things are made and what gets made. Okay? There’s no private
business or enterprise. You don’t have your own company. It belongs to the government, which belongs
to the community, which belongs to everyone. That’s the most extreme. As you can see, they tried this experiment from
1918 to 1991, and other countries have tried it. Didn’t quite work as well as we thought, so
people have kind of backed away from that. A lesser form or something not as
serious we have called socialism. Socialism is existing
right now in France. A country in Europe, in the middle of Europe, nice,
little country, and it’s a little different. They like some of the ideas of
communism, but they were like: “Dude, you gone too far. Sometimes I want to
go to Jeremy’s Bakery and eat from Jeremy’s. I don’t want state-run
bakery goods.” So what they said and what socialism
is about is we have to be social. Yes, we’re a community, but it’s more of our
interaction, how we work together, we’re social. All right? We’re not always one community. And what they say is: “Look, the government
runs a lot of the social programs.” In this case, things like daycare where babies
get taken care of or children get taken care of; medicine, when you go to the hospital;
social welfare, if you lose your job, the government gives you money; and retirement,
when you work no more and you don’t… You’re too old to work,
they give you money. In socialism what they say is very big and
important things-medicine, communications, roads-those are
government things. Business should have no
business in business. Or in other words: Business is not allowed
to be in because this is too important to the society. So this is about the community,
this is about the society. So you’re allowed to have
your own private business. So if you want to have a little English
school, no problem, have an English school. If you want to start your own
video company, go ahead. You want to start a hospital? Sorry, that’s the French
Government, not you. So they separate by saying the most important
things are run by the government, but you can have some private companies. So some private
companies are allowed. Cool? All right. Let’s go to my favourite place. Ta-da, it’s Canada. What? It’s in the center. That’s right, eh? Canada is central because they believe social
programs are necessary, so a little socialist, but they think sometimes people can make good
decisions and governments shouldn’t always tell you what to do. So they’re right in the middle. They’ve decided that we should have more
private business and social programs. So while in France you’ll notice medicine
is run by the government, in Canada you can have the government which does take care of
its people, but you can also have a private industry that can
take care of people. So if you don’t like the government’s business,
you can go out of it and say: “You know what? I want to go to a doctor.” In fact, we have our medicine paid for in
Canada, but you have to pay for a dentist. And in some cases the government will pay
for a dentist for you, so they balance or try to balance
private with social. Cool? All right. Okay, so when we… The pendulum swings to the right we go up
to conservatism, and we’re going to look at the United States of America. Sorry, Latin America, I know that you’re Americans
as well, but generally we consider in Canada “The United States of America”
its official title. Okay? So we’re not insulting you. In conservatism… Do you remember I talked about the rights,
they like things to stay the same? Well, also they like to be
able to do their own business. That’s part of being
conservative. And if we look up here, we’ll go here,
conservatism it starts one before all. They really care about
the individual. They want individual rights, not to
have government tell them what to do. They prefer lower taxes. They don’t want to pay taxes for a government
that’s not doing anything for them. They like less regulation, that means
less laws telling them what to do. It makes them a bit freer to
do what they wanted to do. And you have to remember if the people who
originally wanted this were knights, barons, and dukes who were independent people, who
had their own way of making money and took care of their own things, so they didn’t see
why a government or a king should be able to tell them what to do. And that’s where we have
American on conservatism. Some people would say it’s actually more moderate
than a lot of other countries, but when you think about it, most Americans will tell you
private business can do the job better than government and that’s why
they’re here over here. For instance, in America, private healthcare,
well, healthcare is done by insurance companies which people pay for. And I’ve made a small
mistake, here. When I said “medicine”, in
Canada, we pay for medicine. That’s in case… That’s drugs. We pay for our drugs. What we don’t pay
for is healthcare. Healthcare are your doctors. Okay? So healthcare. We don’t pay for our
healthcare or our doctors. United States, you do. Okay? Sorry, a little mistake there. But in the US you
do pay for this. We do pay for our drugs. Now, if we skip over here and we let the pendulum
go a little bit further, we go to the highest form of conservatism,
and that’s fascism. We can look here at Italy
from 1922 to 1945. Fascism is really interesting because, well,
in communism, the government runs everything. In Fascism the government
doesn’t run everything. They work with business so they like the idea
of business, but they do it for the country, for the nation because fascism has a lot to do
with what we call nationalism, caring about more the nation. In communism they care
more about the community. Fascism is more about the nation, not
necessarily the individual people. That’s why they can have business in
fascist states or fascist countries. Italy was a fascist country for a
pretty long time, 1922 to 1945. Yeah? Some people would say that there’s not much of
a difference between communism and fascism, and there is. Fascism is more national, so they do
whatever they’re doing is for the country. Remember, not necessarily the people but the
country itself, and they will do whatever to make the country great. Communism tends to want to spread,
it’s more international looking. All right? So now that we understand the pendulum and how
it swings, let’s see how well you understand left wing and right wing. One for all or one before all? Ready? Okay, so we talked before, we’re going to
do our quiz, and just a little hint for you on some things you’ve heard
before and may be confused by. Political systems and
economic systems go together. So many times when you hear communism, sometimes
you’re talking about the political system, sometimes they’re talking
about the economic system. Generally if you’re talking about communism,
as you can see here, they go hand in hand. If you have a communist government, you’ll
have a communist economic system because the economics of communism is to be in control,
the government controls how things are made, who makes them, and
where they’re made. Well, that’s going to have to have a political
system that follows that because you can’t really have a democracy where people vote, and
then the government tell them what’s going to be done and how. So generally, communism will be economics
and politics together, but people can refer or talk about them separately
as different things. So don’t get confused
with the two. You have to understand if they’re talking about
how things are done or how things are run. Okay? Socialism also has
politics and economics. In socialism for the politics, the government-once
again, notice how I talk about the government-gets to decide which is… Which things that they are in control of, from
healthcare, education, communications. Yeah. You think: “That’s private.” Some countries, no. The government decides what gets put on and
who gets to do it because they think it’s important for the society
more than the individual. Okay? And economics is the same thing. Well, if someone is making those decisions,
then they usually start telling people, who and what to do, who to do it, and
how to do it or when to do it. So these two tend to go together,
but they can be separate. Okay? Finally, this one is actually easy, capitalism
and conservatism usually go together. Capitalism, though, has the belief that private
hands or private companies make the best decisions better than governments. In conservative politics they think the individual
should be free to make the decision and that’s why these two go together rather well because
you get the individual who happens to be a private business owner,
they work well together. So, and sometimes these
couples go together. Not always, but you’ll find they generally do,
and you have to listen carefully sometimes because it can be confusing if you’re having
an economic conversation or political one. Okay? Let’s go to the board and do a very quick
test to see how well you understood before. What is communism and
which one’s capitalism? And if you notice my
Star Wars’ figures. I want you to take a good look here.
You go: “Which one’s which? Why are you using them?
Why are you using them?” Well, when we think more of the fascist kind of
governments, think more like a Darth Sidious. Okay? Individuals. Remember we talked about the
individual is more important? I’m not saying they’re all evil.
Okay? Fascism did have its time, it wasn’t a
good place, or it wasn’t a good thing. And you can think it’s a little dark,
but it’s about the individual. When we talk about
communism, this piece of… It’s more about the
collective of the community. You can see how communism
is about the community. Individual versus community.
Right? Okay, cool. I hope you got the
visuals, that’ll help you. Communism is a big piece of… Well, fascism can be a little bit evil
sometimes, it’s about the individual. The collective, the individual. Ready for your test? Let’s go. And those of you who are Star Wars
fans are like: “I think, I think not.” Well, that’s my… That’s Yoda.
Sorry. [Laughs] “Do not think.
Think…” Whatever. Let’s go to the board for
your quick quiz. Okay? Let’s talk about social… Okay, first one: “Communism and socialism are on the
__________ of the political pendulum.” Would that be the
left or the right? Communism and socialism. A bit tricky on that
one, but think about it. Na, na, na, na-na,
na, na, na, na. Hint, hint. Okay. Remember we talked about
the left in politics? It was for the people,
the common people. In “communism” we have community, and in
“socialism” we have social, which are people. So we would say it
was on the left. Yes, I know I put that piece on my
right shoulder, but it’s on the left. Left. All right? Good. Let’s try the next one.
You ready? “Moderate countries
__________ social programs. Moderate countries
__________ social programs.” Do they have them or
don’t they have them? O Canada. We’re so proud of that song. Yeah, some of you went: “Oh yeah,
Canada is central and moderate, and they have social
programs.” Right? They have social programs because moderate
means basically middle, so they’ll have some. Not everything, but some. A little less, well, much less in many cases
than the communism or socialist brothers, there. And the final question: “In countries that are conservative,
private businesses __________ allowed.” Are they allowed or not
allowed, what do you think? Hmm, well, here,
let’s take a look. We said conservative, and earlier on I told
you about capitalism and conservatism. If you put that that would be this, they are
allowed because capitalism usually goes with conservative countries. Right? Private business, private entities
or business for you. Cool? Anyway, I hope you enjoyed our
little chat together on politics. As I said before, it’s a bit of an advanced
lesson because some of you are still working on basic grammar or vocabulary. But you have to understand
that you have to grow and go. Right? So you may be here, but later on you’ll be
using these terms if you go to school or you have to take an IELTS exam or something
like that, these terms will be brought up. So if you have an understanding now,
it’ll be easier to deal with it later. All right? Anyway, look, you
have a good day. But before we go anywhere I want you to
go to my favourite place in the universe: www, what? eng, and I
always get this wrong, this one. Okay, got it right this time. eng as in engVid, eng as English,
v as in vid.com (www.engvid.com). Okay? Don’t forget to subscribe, and as the pendulum
swings, it could be here, here, or here. I’m sure one day it’ll
be down here as well. But don’t forget to subscribe, and I look
forward to chatting with you soon. All right? Have a good one. And thanks, as always,
for being on engVid.

  1. Communism has been an utter failure in every attempt. No one is so virtuous as to be able to properly execute the "book communism" to which he refers.

  2. You are a genius!! i am in fishiotherapy with my hands in a basket, but watching your amazing lesson! i learn a lot!.thanksss!!

  3. Very good discussion, very smart man. Thank goodness there's educated well spoken dedicated people to set the record straight and allow us to see inside our own myths. Individuals have leanings. Individuals are all different. Individuals differ widely in their level of understanding. Right wing left wing, is just a way for the criminals, con artists, and money grubbing bomb throwers to keep people at each others throats as they rob the treasury. Time to discard the labels, and myths, to think for ourselves. That will be difficult for some who apparently have lost the ability to reason.

  4. Sooooo…….communism is good? What kind of government will let me say "dude, what the fuck?" And let me go to work so I don't have to be in my fucking house all day and let me keep my money?

  5. Sorry, but fascism is more left wing concept that the right wing, they don’t care about individual rights and they had had a lot of regulations. If you look how they started they took Ideas from Marx

  6. The left is completely terrible today. originally, classical liberals (who value freedom of speech above all else), would have been considered left. They are increasingly refusing to call themselves left wing cuz of how authoritarian they are behaving (go watch videos of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and any activist group that gets violent – they'll be on the left). The closest thing you have to a violent movement on the right is the Alt-Right, and they don't go to left wing events and attack them, they hold their own rallies, which left wing people attack. This even happened in Charlottesville. The Alt Right hold racist views, but that doesn't change the fact that the left initiates the physical violence with them.

  7. France is not socialistic country… its caled social republic… a big diference.
    Fascism is not right… its left. It was found by Giovanni Gentile. He was a leftist, his mentor was Karl Marx and he hated capitalism.
    Learn your stuff

  8. Dear confused libertarians watching this…
    Fascism is right wing, Hitler privatized locally controlled utilities and purged the country of "lefties" Hitler killed socialists, commies and liberals
    ………Fascism is right wing

  9. Instant subscription! Great tune to intro with and as soon as you mentioned your usual videos being on grammar and vocabulary I will have to check those out as I'm rusty on the fine details from Grammar school…
    I'm writing a sci-fi book, that is quite political, so this is very good to sharpen the mind as my novel style is quite Lovecraftian but has a modern, satirical vibe like a comedy such as the Simpsons! I've also descibed it as Mad Max 2 in space. So I'm absorbing the knowledge, so thank you, James.
    I've always proposed a Swiss-style direct democracy with a House of Lords or something to quetion the public vote. But there are so many cross Left/Right details to describe and living in UK a good social safety net is key also.

  10. There was a lot of evil going around the time of ww2 with fascism but don't forget the death toll was higher with stalin's communism and it was just as genocidal for an ideology, one killing over ethnicity and the other over social class, but stalins communistic genocide has less evil acknowledgement.

  11. I have to watch this video a couple of times bc even after watching it i still quite dont understand what this means and i watched several videos explaining the difference

  12. I always had a BASIC understanding of different parties. This really broke it down, and explained it in terms I can understand. Thanks for taking the time. Interesting. Well done.

  13. I have no problem to argue about gun control or taxes and the risks of legal and illegal migration but when people start with conspiracies about a staged breeding programs in Europe to replace the population … What in the hell have you been smoking ?

  14. Far right is not fascism. Right wing ideology consist of the freedom of the individual "One before all". Fascist are against democracy, individual rights, and enforces its authority through violence. It is a branch of socialism mixed with righting characteristics and does not fit on this scale. The farthest right you can go would be anarchism, No rules or regulation.

    You should have done your homework.

  15. Fascit and Socialism have the same ideia of collective above the individual about a social control. There's only a little difference: The fascist believe in a economic intervention (like work's laws and state-owned enterprises), but in a indirect way. In the socialism this control is stronger, even the private property of productiv ways turn out.
    The both have the same social control and a little difference in a economic.
    Hence, the far-right in a economic line is who want a free market. They can be either libertarians (who believes that the state should be destroyed, like me) or conservative, who wants a control by state only in a economic questions.
    In U.S.A, the word liberalism isn't as here in Brazil, that means small state. But, yes the keynesianism (who believes in a economic control, but not a social control).
    Hence, the fight in USA between democrats against the republicans, is who wants a economic intervention against the social intervention respectively.
    The both think that the state (that existes because takes the property by tax, or be theft) can control other people's life.
    Because that, I'm anarchocapitalism and believe in individuals

  16. the old southern democrat and the new Democrats have one thing in common they are extremes of the left and hate the other races. the alternative to the right is the leftist

  17. So what side am I on if I say leave me out of all this political crap and then I continue doing whatever I've been doing before I was interrupted?

  18. This video is really helpful, it really clarify left and right.
    1: Right is usually the dominant hand, it has more power, it want more freedom. Those people don't believe social program, or they don't need it.
    2: Left hand is the weaker hand most of time, it need more help, need more social programs. They need to support each other.
    I know this may not politically right, or not even right, but it's easy to remember.

  19. * LEFT = Global Socialism = Equal Outcome & "Diversity" + Censorship + Open Borders + Victimhood/Group blame + Remove Due Process & Evidence

    * NON LEFT = National Democracy = Equal Opportunity + Merit + Free Speech + Proper border control + Individual accountability + Due Process & Evidence

  20. 5:51 – 2016-2019 – We saw how socialism worked out
    High cost of living
    High Tax's
    High CRIME
    Massive amount of crime from BLACK SOUTH AFICANS and ISLAMIC people
    France has had riots on the streets for MONTHS

  22. 8:01 Canada is NO LONGER CENTRE , the same with AUSTRALIA , UK and NZ
    its all going full FAR LEFT GLOBAL SOCIALIST DICTATORSHIP CONTROL AND CENSORSHIP

  23. Here in Brazil is a little different, we have the left-wing and the right-wing.

    The left-wing people say Fidel castro, Lenin, Stalin, Nicolas maduro, Che guevara are heroes and the americans are capitalist monsters who live the american dream by robbing third world countries. they also believe the true way of improving a country is by dividing the wealth. The left has a effective way to manipulate the blacks, gays and women by saying our society is full of racist, misogynist and homophobic opression. Our midia is also predominant left-wing because the workers party (partido dos trabalhadores) stayed almost 14 years in power spending public money and helping the left-wing midia.

    The right-wing guys say the true way to improve our country is by capitalism because you can't truly increase the wealth by dividing it. The right-wing also believe no class is opressed so no class should have more rights than the other.

    So what is my side? well I wouldn't be writing in the "imperialist capitalist language" (english) if I was from the left…

    The good thing about being a USA citizen is that your equivalent of the left-wing (democrats) don't get even close to our leftist activists and politicians. Our left-wing activists really blame the americans for everything bad that happens in Brazil…

  24. I'm from Bermuda and lack quite a lot of knowledge regarding politics in England, America or anywhere else cause I've just lived on an island for most my life. I'm 16 now and reside in England so, it's starting to get a little embarrassing not knowing much about politics at all. Your one of the sources I'm finding useful but I'm continuing to research and learn about it. Even tho I have no interest and would much rather read about books and research on the universe and conspiracy theories. This does effect me and will like you said effect me and my generation more so in the future so I'll toughen up. Thank you this was super useful.

  25. I really enjoyed this program, Thanks for clearing that up. Sometimes i would get confused with it all . Thanks so much . great lesson. great Teacher lol

  26. I’m so not interested in politics and are forced to vote and absolutely hated voting day. Thank you for making voting understandable. May the force be with with you. Extra points for Star Wars figures.

  27. Just reading the whiteboard I don't think this guy knows his chops, Fascism has much more in common with Socialism and as such should be a characteristic of the Left… stick with English James.

  28. except facIsim is on the left. Fascism is state directed capitalism state directed private life. It falls on the left. Far right would be anarchy.

  29. Leftwing: Young, immature, no life experience , emotional wrecks. Rightwing: Regular mature logical folk.

  30. “Fascism” is not a political movement…. why do you say fascism is the same as nationalism, if you were an educated person you would know….. maybe you need to look at the thesaurus,,….. you ignorant “person” never are they in the same meaning……..

  31. Fascism on the right wing? Oh if you are joking, include nazism also. Lol. Leftists are a mess even in an english class.

  32. Thanks for saying that we should also learn to broaden our horizon rather than just the language itself

  33. I never cared about politics in school and I'm going to be 18 this year and will be able to vote so I want to educate myself more on politics.

  34. How did the dukes and knights and kings vote for conservatism in the USA if the USA was never a monarchy? Nice story, but it's not really true or accurate

  35. "..used to be called the USSR, we now call it Russia.."

    What?

    No we don't. What we call it, is a large country in the middle sort of – called the Russian Federation, with a bunch of other independent countries that used to be part of the Soviet Union, such as Ukraine, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Uzbekistan, etc.

    Lumping them all together and calling them 'Russia' is pretty offensive.

    And as for the story of the left and the right, that's not exactly true either. It actually stems from the French Revolution.

    But then you would know that, if you bothered researching it properly.

  36. JP has great intellectual ideas but he consistently brushes over the conundrum of the fact that many social activism is a result of lived realities and he barely has a pulse when talking about them. Rosa Parks – yah – sure she had a point – and the others – well, maybe I dunno. C'mon! If he wants the left to hear the message, dismissing realities of extreme state violence police harassment and little access to the justice system is not speaking truth to the issue.

  37. James. I enjoyed the video. I actually googled who are considered the right wing? And you video was recommended. TY. Was excellent. Well done. I feel empowered. Knowledge is Power.

  38. You made a mistake in the quiz: You said kings and queens sat in the middle, but in the quiz, your correct answer is the right side.

  39. You concentrate on war more than you should Jamarl, it wasn't the end of war that lead to second world war it was collapse of the economy. And war didn't win our way out of economic disaster and it never will. That's a false narrative. Doesn't surprise me that you remember a commercial, you lead your life according to Star Trek.

  40. The origins of the terms "left" and "right" to designate, respectively, liberals vs conservatives, trace back to the post-revolution National Assembly in France.

  41. Thanks man ! With all this stuff on tv i had to see what all tje fuss was about. Good job bro

  42. WRONG! Lefties have a fundamental misunderstanding of where Fascism lies. It has NOTHING to do with the Right here in the USA or Canada. His diamond shape illustration is taught by Lefties. Obama and the democrats are the ones who mixed government limits and rules with private business, banks and insurance, not the Right. If you want to be confused then go ahead and follow his circle of confusion. Its simple and straight forward and clear. Draw a straight line from left to right. Starting left is Warlord, then Patriarchy, Dictator, Communist, Socialist, Green Party, Fascist, Democrat, Centrist, Neoconservative, Republican, Constitutional Conservative, Libertarian, Anarchist, Sovereign Citizen. Trying to mix in which gov works closely with private enterprise is a Left Wing Tactic of ignorance. China is a perfect example of how wrong this guy is. The line goes straight from the left to right where the government or ruler wants more control and has harder penalty, to the Right where they want Less Gov, Less Taxation, More Individual Freedom. You see how easy it is? Its too easy for a Libtard because they have to confuse every fucking thing always.

  43. Umm this doesn’t make sense if right wing is being for the individual than fascism isn’t right wing because it’s focus was on the nation and not individual liberties

  44. Hhhmmm
    Democrats are for slavery and built based off that and Republicans were against slavery and fought against it.
    Democrats are for government control Republicans are not for big government.

  45. Facism was about the state above individualism which is more left than right. No individual was above the state. Communism no individual is above the collective. The collective make up the state. So they both are Anti individual. So there for both are left wing. Right wing is individualism so this guy is feeding us a line of BS… He is contradicting his on lesson. Come on man.. I thought I was going to learn something.
