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

I think that communism in itself is a flawed system. The reason why I think this is because in order for all people to be equal there has to be a government reinforcing this which results in dictatorship and tyranny. Personally I think that communism is more of a system then an ideology and each state which had a communist system each had a different ideology to go with it, for an example Stalinism in the USSR for a while and Maoism in China. it's just like democracy it's a system not a political ideology. Like you can get liberal democracies and republican democracies. The ideology is liberalism or republicans but the system is democracy. If you disagree with my opinion, that's totally fine, everybody is free to have there views without other people judging them unless they openly hurt somebody.

65 million in the People's Republic of China
20 million in the Soviet Union
2 million in Cambodia
2 million in North Korea
1.7 million in Ethiopia
1.5 million in Afghanistan
1 million in the Communist states of Eastern Europe
1 million in Vietnam
150,000 in Latin America mainly Cuba
Yeah, communism causes a crap ton of deaths.

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.

Stalin (85 million) killed more people than Hitler (14 million) Osama (1 million) and Trump (0) combined! - Maddox121

2 Facism

NOT the same as communism.

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.

Communism is better

Fashy! Fascism is against humanity! Communism will win!

3 Nazism

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

Definitely worse and more violent than any of the other ones

The fact that there's many positive comments on this and neo nazism makes ne ashamed to be a human.Nazism/Neo Nazism(Technically part of Fascism but different from other forms of Fascism) and Communism are the worst.-DarkBoi-X

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

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.

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

It is worse than communism

5 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. - Mrveteran

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

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

6 Sharia Law

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.

The worst political ideology to have. It's one where God rules the land, there is a lack of democracy and has repressive attitudes towards women & gays. Terrible in every way. - Mrveteran

Seriously, call me whatever you want, but Sharia law is terrible. Seriously, just read it. Any intelligent human being with a moral compass can see it.

The worst ideology next to Liberalism, which supports it. Sharia Law, contrary to what they tell you, as a law that oppresses women and LGBTs, saying that it is okay to rape or kill a women/LGBT/somebody of a different race at ant time. And people actually say that Christianity is oppressive.

7 Anarcho-Primitive

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.

This is literally the idea that we all need to go back to the Stone Age from thousands of years ago and get rid of all technology.

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

Funniest thing I ever heard of. Lmao

8 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.

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

All Christian racists idiots not allowing me to listen to heavy metal! Hail Satan! - GreenDayFan21

"Hail satan" this is why Christians don't like heavy metal...
I have nothing wrong with that but you should be maintaining the image of heavy metal instead of defaming it. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Small minded people are here - 445956

9 Anarcho-Communism

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

The greatest economic system in the world. It can help the poor to survive and help themselves, while allowing anyone to succeed at what they want to do. And while some on the left may equate it with slavery, they forget that unlike slavery you aren't forced to buy products or work. It's all up to you. Besides, you have far more freedoms and rights than under a communist government which is far more equitable to slavery. It may be very flawed, but it is the best out of the bunch. - Mrveteran

Capitalism is just alittle bit more evolved form of feudalism. It makes the West and first world countries rich and powerful. Because of the exploitation of resources(gold, oil, drugs, minerals, food) in the third world by American and European corporations which is neo-colonialism. Any country who trys to nationalize it's own resources for the benefit of it's own working class. Either gets invaded by A first world country(USA,UK) or gets a western backed coup for the benefit of the ruling class, big banks and multinational corporations. Two examples of this would be Chile and Honduras.

Another issue with capitalism is that it exploits the working class by outsourcing labor to places like China were they get paid poverty wages. All while they break up labor unions, pollute the environment and stagnant American worker wages. Because capitalism puts profit before people and planet just to make the 1% even richer and more powerful turning democracy into plutocracy and ...more

Communism will win

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 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

15 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.

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

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

Stalin won WW2. How is that a bad ideology?

16 Feminism

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.

Masandry disguised as "equally" that was solved almost 100 years ago

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.

Worst of all time lmao

18 Juche
19 Maoism
20 Globalism
21 Nationalism
22 Monarchism

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.

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

23 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.

24 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

25 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

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.

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.

If government is corrupt takes power away from the people and gives it to the gov socialism doesn’t make everything easyer

26 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!

27 Marxism
28 Imperialism

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.

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

29 Christian Theocracy

The Crusades (All 8 of them)
The 30 years war
The Witch Hunts
The Klu Klux Klan
The Jesuit-lead Native American genocides
The Spanish Inquisition
The St. Bartholemew's Day Massacre

30 National Socialism

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

31 Christian Democracy
32 Social Darwinism

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

Survival of the fittist

33 Left

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

Conseratives are so overrated... - MChkflaguard_Yt

34 Technocracy

YEAH -James Hetfield

35 Democracy

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

36 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

37 Statism

Worst Ideology ever

38 National Bolshevism
39 Rugged Individualism
40 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!

41 Anarcha-feminism

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


42 Colonialism
43 Progressivism
44 Liberalism

Liberalism is actually a very good ideology, liberalism is split up into two different schools, classical liberalism and social liberalism, although social liberals are just triggered buthurt people, classical life herbalism is actually a very good ideology it is the ideology of almost all of the western world, this includes Britain, germany, france, and many more, America has to ideologies, classical liberalism is the primary one and republicans is the secondary one the founding fathers even said so. Its an ideology that suports freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion, free markets, civil rights, democratic scoiciety, secular governments a d international cooperation.

Liberalism is centrist. It is balanced. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Worst. Ideology. Ever.

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.
