Ever since the beginning of politics, there has been a left-right spectrum containing the various political positions. As we know, communism is considered to be extremely far left whereas fascism is considered to be extremely far right. One may look at this and believe communism and fascism to be polar opposites, but in reality, they are merely two sides of the same coin.
Communism and fascism both thrive on enormous government being in absolute power. The two ideologies place a tyrannical leader in place to make all of the important decisions and ordinary civilians are deemed unfit to have the right to govern themselves. Both systems are the antithesis of freedom, individualism, and democracy. Communism and fascism both originated in Europe and gained popularity in the 20th century.
Another parallel between these two systems is they are each socialistic in theory and antagonistic towards capitalism. Essentially, communists and fascists both believe that civilians should be at the mercy of dictators. Both regimes prohibit citizens from gaining property or wealth of their own. There is no “middle class” under communism or fascism.
Ironically, communists and fascists claim to loathe each other, even though they are almost identical. Adolf Hitler, an infamous Nazi and fascist, claimed to abhor communism. Hitler believed communism to be “the scourge of the world” and “a cancer to be cut out of the world,” in his book ‘Mein Kampf.’ These beliefs of communism are paradoxical to fascism in a plethora of ways.
Fascism is a scourge and cancer because it suppresses free speech, invades privacy, promotes racism, sexism, and slavery. Fascism violates every human right imaginable and history has proven that fascism is a nightmare that results in the genocide of millions.
In closing, it is worth noting that in the majority of cases, extremes on either sides of the aisle are dangerous, and this is especially true on the political spectrum. You can only go so far left or so far right before you reach disaster and destruction.
