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 National Socialism (Nazism) Nazism, or National Socialism, is a totalitarian ideology that was practiced in Germany from 1933 to 1945, advocating for racial purity and expansionism.

They commit genocide at the same time as they are not allowing migration which means they would lose any war unless they build robots.

Many people claim that because communism supposedly killed more people than Nazism, it is worse. However, even if this is correct, there are other reasons to consider. Communist governments could often realize more of their plans, and communism survived much longer - 106 years, compared to the 12 years of Nazi rule. Hitler also had many more genocidal goals he wanted to realize after his planned victory, which didn't take place.

At least 5 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust, over 3 million Soviet POWs, 1 million Soviet citizens in Leningrad, at least one million Soviet citizens killed in reprisal actions, over 2 million non-Jewish Poles, 250,000 T4 victims, hundreds of thousands of Slavic people in other occupied countries (mostly Yugoslavia), hundreds of thousands of Porajmos victims, and hundreds of thousands of political opponents - 14 million victims is a very conservative estimation of victims of Hitler's planned "New Europe." Considering WW2 killed 60 million, the actual number is probably much higher.

2 Communism Communism is a socio-economic system that advocates for the collective ownership of property and the means of production.

At least the Germans were able to atone for their mass killings at the end of WW2. The Chinese and the Russians have done literally nothing similar regarding Mao's or Stalin's horrors.

The most evil and dumbest ideology in existence. I'm sorry, but this ideology is not about sharing at all, it's about suffering, laziness, greed, and hunger. People who accomplish big things in communism are left out in the dust just like all the other citizens in the coop, which is pretty much unfair.

Did you know that communism supports global warming and has killed more than any other ideology has killed on earth? Yeah. The fact that people are writing positive comments about this horridness makes me sick to be a human being. This should have never been created and should have never been continued when it failed to work in the first place.

3 Fascism Fascism is a political ideology that centralizes power in a dictatorial leader, regimenting all industry and commerce under the state, and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism.

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.

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

4 Neo-Nazism Neo-Nazism is a post-World War II movement that seeks to revive and implement the ideology of 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.

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

5 Anarcho-Primitivism Anarcho-Primitivism is a political ideology that advocates for a return to non-"civilized" ways of life through deindustrialization, abolition of division of labor, and abandonment of large-scale organization technologies.

This isn't one of those ideologies with a load of blood on their hands, but it's still a pretty dumb ideology, in my opinion. The Stone Age does not sound good. I don't know who would want to go back there unironically.

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.

6 Anarchism Anarchism is a political philosophy that opposes all forms of hierarchical control and advocates for voluntary cooperation among individuals.

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.

Who likes this? Getting rid of the government may work for some time, but you've got to realize that the people will elect a government to lead them no matter what. It is just human nature to have order and cooperation.

7 Islamism Islamism is a political ideology that seeks to implement Islamic law and values in political systems.

The muslims are literally addicted to war so they have to attack other muslims or use terror to provoke other countries to attack them. Islam will fall just like the romans.

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. 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 vastly outweigh the numbers committed according to alternative religious doctrine.

8 Anarcho-Communism Anarcho-Communism combines anarchism and communism, advocating for the abolition of the state, capitalism, wages, and private property.

The most contradictory style of government. While democracy might work with communism, anarchy will cause 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?

It is an oxymoron and you will starve because everybody is eating each others food anyway.

9 National Bolshevism National Bolshevism is a political movement that combines elements of radical nationalism and Bolshevism.

This is an unholy thing that combines two opposing ideologies that are the opposite of each other. And both of them are bad.

Nazi ideology is bad, but combine it with Bolshevism, and it falls way back...

This is the combination of the worst things ever. It should be number 1.

10 Juche Juche is a political ideology originated in North Korea that emphasizes self-reliance, independence, and national sovereignty.

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.

Almost nothing different from absolute monarchy.

Outright dictatorship and personality cult.

11 Corporatism Corporatism is a political ideology that organizes society by major interest groups, or corporate groups, such as agricultural, business, ethnic, labor, military, patronage, or scientific affiliations, on the basis of common interests.

Oppression is oppression, whether it's from a government or a corporation. People should really stop being corporate sycophants and realize that corporate oppression is no better than government oppression. Don't judge something solely based on its source.

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 the 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 the 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

12 Anarcho-Capitalism Anarcho-Capitalism is a political philosophy that advocates for the elimination of the state in favor of individual sovereignty in a free market.

It would never work in real life it would be chaotic like in the wild west. People are greedy and legally steal from each other.

They claim to hate corporatism, yet somehow 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 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 manipulate people into submission. Remember, the corporate oligarchy is a political party and "ancapistan" is just another single party state.

13 Stalinism Stalinism refers to the governance and policies of Joseph Stalin, including rapid industrialization, totalitarianism, and extensive political purges.

Stalinism and fascism are one and 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 wipeout 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 perceived as bad. He made Stalinism for the Soviet Union look bad by killing many people.

14 Conservatism Conservatism is a political ideology that values traditional institutions and practices, advocating for minimal change in society.

You have folks arguing that conservatism emphasizes 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.

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

15 Maoism Maoism, or Mao Zedong Thought, is a variant of Marxism-Leninism that emphasizes peasantry, small-scale industry, and agricultural collectivization.

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.

Sure, I'm from China, but let's just agree that Mao wasn't a good person. At least, he was an important part of China's history.

16 Posadism Posadism is a Trotskyist ideology that believes in the power of nuclear war to destroy capitalist societies and trigger socialist revolution.
17 Anarcho-Posadism Anarcho-Posadism is a variation of Posadism that combines anarchism, believing in the abolition of hierarchical structures, with the Posadist faith in extraterrestrial life.
18 Marxism Marxism is a socio-economic theory that analyzes class relations and societal conflict using a materialist interpretation of historical development.
19 Socialism Socialism is a political and economic theory that advocates for the means of production, distribution, and exchange to be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

Everyone equal and dependent on government decisions 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 reject certain ideas that a democratic-socialist government proposes. Social healthcare works very well in Europe and Canada, for instance.

Jesus was more or less a socialist. Essentially, in colloquial terms, this means that the political system should provide a safety net for the needy and prevent the wealth gap from becoming too large. This approach is often found mixed with capitalism, typically in social democratic systems like those in Canada, France (currently run by the Socialist Party), Scandinavia, the UK, the Netherlands, and much of developed Europe.

In more radical terms, socialism is implemented without the state in systems that are anarchist or, yes, Marxist communist. However, don't mistake left-libertarian style communism for the Soviet brands of Marxism, Leninism, and Stalinism, which were the foundations of nearly all the Communist states throughout the world. These states became corrupt due to their authoritarian approach. Many Marxists and Anarchists at the time criticized the Russian Revolution in 1917.

Meanwhile, just as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is not democratic, the National Socialist Party was not socialist. Learn your history.

20 Anarcho-Syndicalism Anarcho-Syndicalism is a theory of anarchism that views labor syndicates as the potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society democratically self-managed by workers.

Just plain trash. Mostly the anarchist part.

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 Fundamentalism Fundamentalism typically refers to a belief in strict and literal interpretation of religious texts.

Same as conservatism as i said you can not run the same system for an unlimited time. Thats why ages exist.

22 Cultural Marxism Cultural Marxism is a critique of the capitalist system, viewing culture as a main influencing factor for societal problems.

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 civilizations 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.

23 English Socialism English Socialism, or "Ingsoc," is a fictional political ideology in George Orwell's dystopian novel "1984," characterized by totalitarian control of society by the Party.

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

24 Feminism Feminism is a socio-political movement that advocates for gender equality and women's rights.

They are pro equality except when it comes to mens rights. They do have a point tho because women were not always allowed to vote.

This is a crappy ideology, and I hate it. It's just made by a bunch of idiots that are sexist, and it shouldn't be taken seriously. Unless it actually becomes a major ideology, then humanity is doomed.

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% of the population will live together and will have no laborers to exploit, so they'll have no source of income. Communists will stay in peace forever. Feminists will have a place full of women.

25 Nationalism Nationalism is a political ideology that emphasizes loyalty, devotion, or allegiance to a nation or nation-state.

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

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

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