The Political Spectrum Explained In 4 Minutes

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
In the modern political world, the terms ‘left-wing’ and ‘right-wing’ can often be heard and misunderstood. But what do these terms mean and where do they come from? The terms Left and Right were first used in an ideological context during the French Revolution of the 18th century. Those on the left were in support of the revolution and those on the right supported the monarchy. This idea of the left supporting change and the right wanting to keep the status quo continues today and is key in some of their philosophy.

Regardless of what you believe, if you approach a political discussion with hostility, you're in the wrong.

The left is when the government does stuff. Except when it's not. The right is when there's a focus on individual freedom. Except when it's not

I think that terms of right-wing and left-wing should be abandoned, since they are too general and often create misunderstandings. There are at least 3 spectrums of values, that should be taken into consideration:

Culture and Values (Liberal - Conservative)

Economic (Socialist - Capitalist)

State Authority (Totalitarian - Libertarian)
