Top 10 Worst Political Ideologies

There have been many bad ideas. But which one was the worst. Please comment I want to know why.
The Top Ten
1 Nazism

I hate this almost as much as I hate communism. Same with fascism. Just as with communism, people were hurt and killed. And now, the Marxists have abused the word so much to the point where it has lost ALL meaning. I hate it.

As much as I disagree with Communism, this ideology is responsible for probably the most destructive war in history. It incorporates racism and genocide, and was responsible for the horrible event the Holocaust was. I know the idea of Communism just doesn't work out in general, but it at least tries to strive for democracy and doesn't have horrible intentions like Nazism.

Nazi killed 6 million. Commies killed 700-750 million. Actually, Nazi didn't wanted to conquer the whole world, they wanted only Lebensraum, that was inhabited by dirty commies, so it would be not too bad. They even didn't have an intension to genoside these commies (actually, they wanted to save about 30 million on these territories to serve Nazis as slaves, but they were already slaves in the USSR, with no salaries, no education, no healthcare, no food, no human rights etc). Hitler would develop these territories, while commies ruined everything they could.
Also Nazism is much closer to western ideologies, than communism. It doesn't denies private property and deals with capitalism.

Ideology that started World War II, failed and caused millions of death Slovenes, Jews trough genocide. This is one of the worst ideology behind communism that has ever been practiced, and the only reason it started was to kill a lot of innocent people.

2 Communism

Even the Nazis didn't try to outright conquer the entire planet, and the Communist's lust for sheer power and his hatred and persecution of the religious, especially Christians, in history would make the likes of Herod and his Roman overlords recoil in shock. The worst part is that these communists actually got within reach of their diabolical goals in the 70s with the decimation of the US military and executive office. That is not a future I'd want to live in for sure.

Communism is evilness and corruption combined. Anybody who supports communism or is a communist or even a socialist is a disgrace to our society. We need peace and no more genocides. Communism is always going to lead to failure and more deaths and we don't need anymore families torn apart because of communism. Some children are growing up without parents or families because they have been killed by the communist. A message to all communist think about if you had your human rights stripped and could not have the freedom to live your life the way you want to live it. Humans only live once and why waste that one chance at living as a puppet forced to do what the government tells you. If you want to get people killed and take away peoples rights than go ahead become a communist. But all that blood will be on your hands like Mao Stalin and the whole Kim family.

Karl Marx invented Communism, but he didn't just write one book; he wrote many pieces of literature. One of Marx's literary works is called "Human Pride". In it, he expresses a desire to smash the creations of God. He states, "I shall build my throne high overhead, cold, tremendous shall its summit be…Then I will be able to walk triumphantly, like a god, through the ruins of their kingdom. Every word of mine is fire and action. My breast is equal to that of the creator… I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above." This is a tacit admission that Karl Marx never wished for a better world; rather, he sought to drag the world down with him and destroy it. A second piece of evidence is in Marx's poem, "The Fiddler". In it, he recalls, "See this sword? The prince of darkness sold it to me. For me he beats the time and gives the signs. Ever more boldly I play the dance of death." The Prince of Darkness is another word for Satan ...more

Communism throughout history has killed millions of innocents animals have died places bombed and destroyed and cities in ruins all thanks to communism and the fools who choose to follow it. I will die before I let communism destroy my country and my people. Also the communist are responsible for some of the worlds bloodiest and most destructive wars such as Vietnam war Korean war and the cold war and even some civil wars in countries. The communist have little to no regard for peoples lives and will not stop killing until their blood lust is satisfied which may take decades to end.

3 Fascism

There is actually nothing in the doctrine of Fascism that is pro racist or anti Semitic. It's a bad ideology but not racist kind of the opposite. Only after 1938 when mussolini allied himself with Hitler did he pass anti Semitic laws that where never really inforced for strategic reasons. So this definition is a bit incorrect.

This is when people reject capitalism but backwards. They lament the end of the world they knew, the world where loyalty to god, country and family (read, theocracy, racism and patriarchy) were standard and thus try to revive Feudal values, reconciled with industrial productive forces and capitalistic modes of production. It is a nationalist socialism while Communism is internationalist socialism.

Who was stupid enough to combine Nationalism and Totalitarianism. Because that's essentially what this ideology is. A Totalitarian Ultranationalist Oligarchy that also advocates for genocide.

Fascism is an ideology based on sectarism and discrimination, there is not freedom and I think that if we are against this ideology, it's for a good reason.

4 Anarcho-Primitive

This should genuinely be in the top 3. It's an ideology centered around stripping away modern technology, medicine and science and going back to the stone age. Can you imagine how much death and suffering this would cause? Not just from people dying of diseases or wounds that would be simple in our current timeline but from the amount of lawlessness.

I'll give it to the Anprims that they arn't naively taking on other ideologies with rose tinted glasses and understand the fundamental flaws of their ideology. They think Life would be simpler if we were all just monkeys with no modern Medicine and Technology. However I still don't agree with this ideology.

No technology, going back to the Stone Age, probably the worst ideology for that alone. Plus believing that humans should do that is foolish and wrong; my vote for the worst ideology on here.

The ultimate reactionaries who want to roll us back to the Stone Age, destroying all technology, instead of looking forward to fix our problems.

5 Neo-Nazism

I do not understand why anyone finds this desirable. The two core ideas of Nazism are racism and totalitarianism. Anybody deemed undesirable will find their only hope in defecting, and the others better watch their mouth. Economics don't matter if a slip of the tongue becomes a heart attack, and especially not if the authorities put your life at stake for the way you were born.

People don't understand Nazism. The idea is to help developed one's own country leading to a to a strong, rich government. Also leading to a better society and government will be able to support the people in any programs. Also stopping greed people from taking advantage of the public and controlling economy.

They are militant extremists who promote hatred, ultranationalism, and outright authoritarianism, literally wanting to create a fascist state.

Why so much positive comments about this? People who agree with this should Be Executed in the most brutal way possible!

6 Anarchism

The most pointless ideology to have. Human nature means that we are conditioned to be led, and those leaders don't necessarily have to be the government. It can be parents or role models for example. As such, if we overthrow the system, we will inevitably develop a new one consisting of leaders and such that will render anarchism pointless. It's all pointless.

Anarchism is the absolute most dangerous ideology on Earth, and it would probably be one of the most deadly if it was implemented on a global scale. Anarchism would lead to a total collapse of society and hopefully a sane group would seize power over the anarchist society and reinstate a government.

Anarchism is the worst political ideology, even worse than communism. At least with communism, it could work in a country with 200 people. But anarchism will never work, maybe on paper, but not in practice.

Anarchism is a temporary and unsustainable power vacuum, not a power structure. Just as soon as it forms, a different centralized power will take its place.

7 Anarcho-Communism

The most contradictory style of Government, while Democracy MIGHT work with communism, Anarchy will force any nation to collapse indefinitely. If you want anarchy, don't worry about the other part, since you will only have anarchy.

Let me get this straight; The government should steal property and redistribute it, without existing?

Perhaps the most contradictory ideology in existence.

How... how is an ideology like this even possible?

8 Islamism

Muhammad was obviously a false prophet. For example, he claims to be a prophet of the Abrahamic God, yet prophethood in Judaism and Christianity requires that the prophet be from the Tribes of Israel. The last of the tribes was destroyed in AD 70, directly after the death of Jesus Christ, and some 500 years before the birth of Muhammad. The man was also born in Arabia, far away from the Levant. Furthermore, Muhammad's source of revelations was an angel.

Notably, Muhammad said that he would die with his aorta cut if he made a false revelation (Quran 69:44-46). His own holy book says that this was true, and he himself stated that: " The Prophet in his ailment in which he died, used to say, O 'Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison" (Sahih al-Bukhari 44:28). This confirms that he is a false prophet.

Fortunately for Muslims, Christ died for humanity's sins. Thus, there ...more

"hmm let me just die in the precise way that makes me a liar" —muhammad (piss be upon him), 632
Anyhow this is the way that we get millions dead worldwide through history. It does makes sense for that to happen because "Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light" according to 2 Corinthians 11:14. After all, Muhammad was reportedly told everything he was by an angel.

Islamism is the worst form of fascism, fascism simply proposes the stifling of one's opponents views whether this be by imprisonment or deportation the method is inconsequential to the bare foundations of the ideology. Islamism on the other hand explicitly prescribes to its adherents the necessity of exacting the murder of its adversaries.

Indeed, the adherents of such a principle have killed millions thus, Islam carries the title of the most murders according to the principles of the religion. The Islamic conquests of India for instance, served to claim the lives of in excess of 30 million people. This indubitably renders the argument that Christianity has killed more individuals as mere incompetence as whilst it is perhaps the case that supposed adherents of the Christian faith may have committed more murders than Muslims, this is to be expected given that it has always comprised more followers. The numbers of murders committed both for and in accordance to Islamic doctrine ...more

It's a false religion made by a false prophet. He claims legitimacy from the Bible, but doesn't flow the requirements to be a prophet. Also his religion led to millions of deaths in Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and India.

9 National Bolshevism

This is the Combination of the worst things ever it should be number 1.

The only ones that are this are people who try to be edgy.

A mix of Fascism(If not, then Nationalism) and Communism. So, it's just as bad as it seems.

This is legit the worst thing.How is this not number 1?They want to repeat what both Communism and Nazism did.

10 Juche

The official ideology of North Korea. It's basically Stalinist Communism with elements of Ultranationalism and isolationism.
It could also be called "Monarcho-Communism" since the rule is hereditary.

If Communism and Fascism have a baby, you got this.

Outright dictatorship and personality cult.

Fake communism, and a wannabe religion.

The Newcomers

? Bolshevism
The Contenders
11 Conservatism

This isn't that bad. Same with classic liberalism. And for those who call conservatives privileged, have you thought that maybe you are projecting? You also could be considered privileged.

You have folks arguing that conservatism emphasizes on civil liberties, and history (and the present, just look at Hungary) has shown it to be quite the opposite. At the core of conservatism are "traditional values", a good portion of which are not libertarian and even call for further control of society.

All people who hate all conservatives are small-minded bigots. And it's ironic that they claim conservatives to be closed-minded when they're being the same way. For cryin' out loud, there are open-minded conservatives.

Why would anyone be a conservative? They are greedy rich people who just want more money for themselves. They don't think people should have healthcare or a good environment, and they support going off and invading whatever country they like.

12 Anarcho-Capitalism

They claim to hate Corporatism yet somehow will advocate for a system that is easy for corporations to exploit. They go on about their NAP but will the NAP save you from a collective mob of thugs who were paid to ignore it by somebody who can afford it?

Also it's a very contradictory ideal. That even Libertarians find them extreme.

The big problem with this ideology is that even if realized, it would implode on itself as it has no leviathan to keep the exploited peoples in order. Unless it has one secretly but that is just self-defeating except to just manipulate people into submission. Remember the corporate oligarchy is a political party and "ancapistan" is just another single party state.

Big corporations is almost as dangerous as communism. Because they can control all means of human life.

I can't imagine how these two contradicting ideologies could even work anyways. Terrible idea.

13 Corporatism

Should be higher. It is pretty much a more extreme and oligarchic form of capitalism. Corporatism is what happens if you remove all regulations and it is what happens when government decides to support big businesses. It is basically where big businesses control most of the economy and can even control the country by getting support from government. Under such a system workers would be highly exploited and have no rights, small businesses would not have any way to get success and would have to close early and the middle class would most likely not exist. So while Capitalism as a whole can be flawed, at least regulated capitalism is good because it allows for innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit while also having workers rights. Corporatism is where big businesses are the only ones that succeed. I think a mixed economy is best. - DarkBoi-X

Also can be known as "Extreme Capitalism", this ideology is essentially when big corporations and the government are in bed. Under Corporatism, there would be no regulations and the big corporations would have total control of the economy and as a result, the environment would be damaged even more, workers would have little or no rights and small businesses would have no way to get success.
Overall, it's a terrible ideology and should be higher than 18.

My idea of corporatocracy (this is the actual name of government by big business, corporatism is something else) is that ONE corporation is in control, not several. Either way it's not going to be great.

I mean, this is literally just capitalism. only reason why anyone is calling it "corporatism" is because they're so cucked by capitalism that they wanna add a superficial divider between the two. late stage capitalism is corporatism, this is how "real capitalism" is currently running. neoliberal propaganda that humanizes corporations to children, turns anti-capitalism into a pro-capitalist concept, and suggests no alternative. neoliberal late stage capitalism IS corporatism, if you want a fair market again, then socialism is the way to go. form governance amongst your community, work for your community, and get rewarded for your work, but without the ability to expand exponentially and exploit the working class to become an emperor. corporatism is to capitalism as the electoral college is to democracy, both claim to be the other but the results show something very different

14 Stalinism

Stalinism and fascism are one of the same. Stalin claimed to be a communist but he was not. Communism is when all people are equal. Stalinism had one absolute ruler. Stalinism and fascism both wanted the wipe out of all other ethnicities and the annihilation of free will. They were the purest level. I am a classical liberal.

Don't get me wrong, Stalin was not a communist, he chose to kill people to pretend that communism is bad, this person was the reason communism is bad, he made Stalinism for the Soviet Union look bad by killing many people

Severe human rights abuses and suppression of freedom.

Stalin isn't even a communist. Thanks for putting it here.

15 Maoism

Maoism is, by far, the worst ideology known to man. Mao made people make steel in their backyards while working collectively in the fields, and when that didn't work; he killed millions of those who protested. China would've surpassed the USA in terms of economic, diplomatic and democratic power by now if it weren't for Mao.

Mao? He still is our famous chinese guy and he too is one of the reasons communism looks evil, Stalin and Mao are the reasons why communism looks like a dirty evil ideology

Destructive, neglectful, and dictatorial one-party politics.

16 Posadism
17 Marxism
18 Anarcho-Posadism

Who the hell wants this?

Supports nuclear war.

19 Fundamentalism
20 Anarcho-Syndicalism

Not that bad but I don't know if this will work because while it has it only lasted for a few years.-DarkBoi-X

21 Cultural Marxism

Should be number 1

This is not only the worst ideology ever, but it's even the basis for some other ideologies on this list. Cultural Marxism destroys civilisations by letting women be complete degenerates, importing incompatible cultures, tolerating obvious mental disorders, supporting socialist policies and using political correctness to silence opinions. It is the ideology which modern leftism is pretty much built on.

22 English Socialism

A bad derivative of socialism, as well as the perfect recipe for civil uprising.

23 Socialism

Socialism is just envy and jealousy of the successful. Communists get all of the money of the rich in their nations, yet remain poor.

Everyone equal and dependent on government descisions is only for absolute socialism. This kind of socialism doesn't exist anymore. Socialism is now democratic-socialism. Meaning that people have the right to accept or to reject certain ideas that a democratic-socialist government are proposing. Social Healthcare works very well in Europe and Canada for instance.

Jesus was a more or less a socialist. All it means really means in colloquial terms is that the political system should allow a safety net for the needy and that the wealth gap should not become too big. This is most often found mixed with capitalism (typically social democratic systems in Canada, France (current run by the Socialist party), scandinavia, the uk, Netherlands much of developed Europe) in state terms.In more radical terms it is done without the state in systems that are anarchist or yes, marxist communist. Don't mistake left-libertarian style communism for the Soviet brands of Marxism, Leninism and Stalinism which were the foundations of pretty much all the Communist states throughout the world. They became corrupt and because of their authoritarian approach, and many Marxists and Anarchists at the time to criticize the Russian Revolution in 1917. Meanwhile just like the democratic peoples republic of Korea is NOT democratic the National Socialist party were NOT ...more

This is just a lessened and more "humanised" form of communism that is designed to fool the idiotic millennial sheep who live with their parents, too lazy to work and expect free handouts from the government or probably just haven't experienced the real world yet. Or if they already maintain a job and own their own private property, all traits of Capitalism, then they're just downright politically misinformed.

Socialism always leads to a bigger and more corrupt government who steals money from the hardworking middle class and upper classes who worked hard for their wealth and singlehandedly destroys business through oppressive taxes and regulations.

And speaking as a European myself, who is considering moving to the US in the future, quit praising Europe in general as some sort of "Socialist paradise", because it's not. Come here and see for yourself. Europe and the EU as a whole is laden with debt, corruption and has the slowest economic growth and highest unemployment ...more

24 Nationalism

Nationalism is problematic, and with the advent of social media and the internet, the future world is going to reject nationalism. Napolean and Caesar were nationalists.

Only terrible when it's nationalism of the oppressing nation and people's.

While not bad, it can lead to massive deaths and hate.

25 Feminism

Feminism is a power grab. Giving women rights led to the rise of big government and Prohibition in the early 20th century and later, the Sexual Revolution and antinatalism. In modern times, they have given the world the metoo campaign and the fat acceptance movement. Feminism also indirectly contributed to the rising prominence of buggery and other indecent fetishes (and indirectly to groomers and pedophilia) in society as it was their Sexual Revolution that provided these people some legitimacy where they once had none, through the logic of "two consenting adults can have sex freely". The destruction of the institution of marriage, however, is the most damaging thing that the feminists accomplished to society. Without marriage, kids are now being raised in single mother homes and are consequently deprived of suitable role models.

We just want to create a utopia where everyone is equal. Wait, white men exist? Ew, Nazis. Kill them all and spit on their graves. White men don't deserve anywhere near as much equality as anyone. In fact no, equality means that we'll have to do the same as them to survive, and that's not fair. We deserve special treatment, we deserve to be deified, we deserve our words to be immortalised as truth, no matter how backstabbing and bogus. We deserve to be shot before we tarnish the name of feminism any further.

I have created a new ideology
All people who support an ideology should live together in a country totally run by them.then the fun begins.
In capitalism all rich 1% population will live together and will have no labours to exploit so they'll have no source of income.
Communists will stay in peace forever.
Feminists will have a place full of women.

I think you mean Feminazism, which is the type of "feminism" they have today. To compare the feminism of the 20th century with the whining, unstable, neckbeard patriarchy obsessed idiocy that infests websites like tumblr today is insulting.
