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 Communism

This ideology killed millions of people - ElSherlock

Sounds good, doesn't work - yungstirjoey666

Biggest record of failure, highest death count, rots any nation it's implemented in, the fundamental principle is inherently flawed if anyone has even the slightest understanding of human nature. Yet unlike other drastically flawed ideologies (Fascism, Theocracy, etc.) is still widely advocated for.

Just commies

2 Facism

*Fascism* not "Facism" - ElSherlock

It's spelled "fascism." - Cyri

Communism is better

Fashy! Fascism is against humanity! Communism will win!

3 Nazism

How is racist genocidal fascism not higher than not so genocidal/not that racist fascism?

Definitely worse and more violent than any of the other ones

As a. Communism hater, seeing this below it is just horrible - 445956

Worst Idea Ever! Should be number 1. Communism was meant to bring equality, and Stalin wasn’t even a real communist. Even under Stalin the killing would have eventually stopped, but under Nazism, the genocide would have continued for ages because it would have taken FOREVER to kill every single Jew, Slav, Communist, Gypsy, Homosexual, etc.

4 Neo-Nazism

I don't support Antifa or Black Bloc but Richard Spencer got what he deserved. Should get punched again to be honest. - DarkBoi-X

Whoever said that Neo-Nazis need to be executed is probably a communist. Just putting that out there

Why so much positive comments about this? People who agree with this should Be Executed in the most brutal way possible! - GreenDayFan21

Richard Spencer should be punched again.

5 Anarchism

Anarchy is ass

Punk ideology.

It's much worse then communism...We can just look at antifa how would world with anarchy look like...

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. - Mrveteran

6 Sharia Law

Should be number 1

Islamic Totalitarianism, much?

The most darkness totalitrian ideology of all time ; it keeps going since 14oo years and it does not stop. 270 millions (minimum) killed and many says a lot more (India genocide) with rustics arms to do it. Just imagine a country like Saudi Arabia with the militairy power of the USA! Billions of people would be killed immediately.

A supremacist ideology that has as it tenants, laws that totally contravene every conceivable human right. Allows for slavery, calls for killing of non-Muslims unless they submit into dhimmitude, death for apostates, death for homosexuality, women are chattels, Jews are pigs etc etc. It is a cavalcade of murderous and hate filled barbarity that should be outlawed in civilized society. How it is not further up the list is beyond my comprehension as 270 million people have been killed in the name of Islam.

7 Conservatism

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.

Small minded people are here - 445956

People mistake us for alt-rightists. I believe this is why this is on here.

I think they are stuck in the past and can't understand that things need to change, despite it making them uncomfortable.

8 Anarcho-Primitive

Bro this ideology is cringe

Bro cringe

This ideology in a nutshell:
Mmmm. Stone Age is so good, I think I'd like to try it a second time!
If you get the reference, you deserve a medal. - TeamRocket747

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.

9 Anarcho-Communism

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

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

Perhaps the most contradictory ideology in existence.

10 Capitalism

Evil. The most manipulate tool to control people like savage animals. It turns communities against each other. And it is so ignorant and unstable. And it promotes competition, which separates society. A good capitalist is a dead one and anyone who defends it, like ignorant snobs, should be killed.

Capitalism killed over two billion people. From Native Americans, to black slaves, to religious genocides, to the brake up of the USSR and Yugoslavia, suicide rates and mental illnesses (mental illnesses sometimes comes from stressing out of bills and finances) sky rocketed in the 1990's in Russia, Eastern Deutschland, and Yugoslavia.

I hate capitalism so much I would much rather live in a fascist nation, and I hate fascism too, but not as much as capitalism. Capitalism is supported by those who are greedy, and are mentally unstable and confused. Capitalism promotes people to lie just to make a living wage. And conservatives lie so much, like "Most people go up the Income ...more


Communism will win

No dot like

The Contenders

11 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

12 Anarcho-Capitalism

Anarchy and Capitalism. Two bad things - 50

This ideology is an oxymoron.

13 Zionism

The state of israel was created as an escape zone for jews who frauded people on their money.

There are two kinds of people.Jew and Zionists,but Zionists are evil.

14 Stalinism

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

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.

Without Stalinism and Maoism, communism wouldn't look as bad as it is today.

Stalin won WW2. How is that a bad ideology?

15 Feminism

Third-wave feminists ruined this ideology - ElSherlock

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. - AdamDestructorJr.


Female version of a Male chauvinist but worse... it has political backing. smdh

16 Islamism

What is a religion doing on here - MChkflaguard_Yt

Are you autistic. Seriously.

Islamism is a dangerous movement

This is biggest danger

17 Maoism
18 Corporatism

What is communism doing on #1. We got a much greedier ideology here. Combining capitalism with oligarchy AND authoritarianism is the worst sum ever. - MChkflaguard_Yt

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

19 Monarchism

There are good kings. But the level of corruption in royality is just... next level I guess - MChkflaguard_Yt

A swedish queen quitted and became a nun. Many royalties don't care about politics at all. And sometimes the royalty is incompetent and has a disorder. You can fix that with constitutional monarchy but that is really inefficient.

A lack of modern examples? Sweden, Belgium, Spain, Great Britain etc... are still today monarchies. Are they working? Yes, but it cost a LOT of money to the people who live in those countries. They get paid for doing nothing.

There is a lack of modern day examples. But in france it was a total fail.

20 Globalism

It's just stupid!

21 Nationalism
22 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.

23 Feudalism

A joke that calls for a king to give too much authority to his lords which then leads to serfs being really poor

Unstable and does not work

24 Socialism

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

Socialism is evil. People should not get money for not working. Communism is already number one thankfully, but this should be number two.

Communism is the perfect way for one centralized form of power to control billions. Socialism is the perfect way of doing it and disguising it as heart felt and fair.

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.

25 Theocracy Theocracy Theocracy is a Christian progressive power metal band founded in 2002 by Matt Smith of Athens, Georgia.

A Progressive Power Metal Band? I might give them a listen. - AdamDestructorJr.

At least the leader wont be assassinated.

There is actually no greater government than theocracy...imagine being led by an unfailing God!

Hint: It's quite literally the same as Nazism.

29 Imperialism

Responsible for early middle ages and China in the 19th century. - MChkflaguard_Yt

You must bow down to your king and queen... They are your MASTERS!?!?!

Sorry, I will like to get my head ripped off before I had to bow it down to someone. - Nord666

Basically an excuse to get a few countries' worth of cheep minority labor rapped in a thinly veiled blanket of jingoistic nationalism.

Imperialism does not have a king and queen! That's Monarchism. Imperialism have Emperors and Empresses.

30 Progressivism
31 Social Darwinism

Zero safety. Anarchy but with much more chaos. We need a bigger government on this one. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Survival of the fittist

32 Left

It depends where. The left is just the opposition. - AdamDestructorJr.

Conseratives are so overrated... - MChkflaguard_Yt

33 Christian Democracy
34 Juche
35 Colonialism
36 Democracy

Alright,which fascist(Or communist or oligarch) put this on here? This is best system of government.-DarkBoi-X

37 Statism

Worst Ideology ever

38 Technocracy

YEAH -James Hetfield

39 Dynasty

Dynasty is not an ideology. It is the same as monarchy. Which China hater is it again? - MChkflaguard_Yt

It’s not the exact same flaguard monarchy passes to the oldest son dynasty is any sin it’s pretty close to the same though

40 National Bolshevism
41 Rugged Individualism
42 Greater Serbia

This ideology made Hitler Evil and got him sent to hell! it also cost Archduke Ferdinand his life! Not only that but its followers are killers who Condemn people to hell!

43 Anarcha-feminism

Oh, extremists. When will they learn? - AdamDestructorJr.


44 Liberalism

Liberalism is centrist. It is balanced. - MChkflaguard_Yt

I respect the ideology but some liberals don't know what they are doing or saying - SoloPotato


An ideology that is a mix of so many things on this list. They promote Neo-Nazis (Antifa, ironically enough), Sharia Law, modern feminism (mietriarchy), socialism (a worse version of communism), black supremacy, wanting people to be forced to marry LGBTs, trying to make everybody fat, so on and so forth. Liberals are always saying that Conservatives are Nazis, but that’s contradictory because Conservatives like small governments (unlike Liberals). Also, the Nazi and Conservative party are both different parties.

45 People who think "Zionism" is a real thing

Already here - AdamDestructorJr.

Zionism is a real thing, it's the whole reason Israel exists.

AKA Illuminati conspiracy theorists.

46 Democratic-Socialism

Good ideology.-DarkBoi-X


47 Dominionism
48 Oligarchy
49 Left Wing

Don't forget Right Wing - ElSherlock

Left wing is no different than communism, or socialism.marxism or whatever you want to call it.

Communism as a theory isn't even bad. Its implementation has been cartoonishly bad and some of its offshoots have been atrocious, but that's about it. - AdamDestructorJr.
