Yeah, I don't disagree with anything you are saying from an academic standpoint. On the spectrum scale, communism has more in common with the left and fascism the right. But people (especially on the internet) are defensive and will react as if the two are being conflated, even when they are not. So, from a practical standpoint, it's usually counterproductive to introduce those extremes as part of the natural political spectrum as they are such clear aberrations. But that's just my opinion.I largely agree with this. I’m sorry if my earlier posts were unclear: I did not mean to imply that either extreme is a teleological outcome of normal left- or right-leaning thought. Both are deplorable perversions.
