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 Worst Political Ideologies

1 Communism

Killed more people than any other ideology in human history.

"But that wasn't real Communism"
Okay then. Let's look at "real Communism"(Which is Marxism). The major flaw here is the temporary dictatorship of the proletariat which is supposed to then slowly transition into a stateless, classless and moneyless society.
Sounds good on paper but do you really think a dictator would slowly decrease his power and after 20 years of ruling just give up his power and make society Anarchy? Only in a fantasy utopia world would that happen. - DarkBoi-X

This kills way too many people, please don't ever let USA, or any other country for that matter, hit communism, we can't afford it, especially with Russia and China also being Communist. Nobody would ever be able to save us, so please, let's all put an end to this terrible man slaughtering ideology

If you thing "fascism" is worse you really need to rethink your Political stand mate

2 Nazism

Yeah, this is the worst one. Fascism plus genocide. At least feudalism didn't set out so deliberately to destroy whole peoples.

how is this below communism - yeah communism sucked but it didn't literally ask for the direct extermination of entire races

this website has got to be full of nazis

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

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

3 Fascism

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. - DarkBoi-X

At least communism related deaths had a point to the, whereas facism was just killing due to race.

NOT the same as communism.

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. - DarkBoi-X

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.

Bro this ideology is cringe

5 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

I think Nazism without anti-semitism and xenophobia would be good.

6 Anarchism

Anarchism is actually a very misunderstood political theory. It doesn't advocate total mayhem, but the reconstruction of society from the bottom up on the principles of voluntary association and self-governance. Anarchists (like myself) believe that as adherence of an individual's nation to a certain system of government isn't decided by said individual (rather they are forced into it) and may not suit their needs, there is no such thing as the consent of the governed. Anarchism emphasises individual freedom, and (contrary to popular belief) we are not against all types of authority. We are not against the authority of a teacher over a learner for example, but instead are against strict human domination. Anarchism additionally holds that everybody should be able to choose whichever economic system they want to work and/or live under (this would come through communes centred around any ideology, worker co-ops or business firms). So, anarcho-communists believe in the superiority of ...more - ThePoliticalTheorist

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.

7 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.

Barbaric, sexist and it's meant to protect a child molester. That is all I'm going to say about this twisted garbage for now. - AGK

8 Anarcho-Capitalism

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.

It's essentially Corporatism but without a state. Ideology for psuedo-intellectual neckbeards. - DarkBoi-X

Anarchy and Capitalism. Two bad things - 50

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.

Just as bad as communism

10 National Bolshevism

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

The Contenders

11 Conservatism

It isn't the worst ideology but I genuinely hate how backwards SOME Conservatives are. Especially the ones that deny climate change. - DarkBoi-X

Very old fashioned, only works for rich or privileged people. They just want everything to stay the same, which is stupid. I believe in progress!

Conservative literally means to stay the same and only people with privledge want that. Everything is better when civilization progresses and diversity thrives.

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.

12 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

13 Posadism
14 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. - DarkBoi-X

Hint: north korea - Dvafan2

15 Anarcho-Posadism
16 English Socialism
17 Corporatism

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. - DarkBoi-X

This is why people hate capitalism. This is what happens when governments become corrupt and institutions meant to provide for the people turn into machines that protect the rich.

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

18 Zionism

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

Racist towards who can be Jew or not.

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

19 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?

20 Transhumanism
21 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

Capitalism... because the people who grow up in a country like US really don't know the other ideologies and they really believe that the other ones are evil...

22 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

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

Third-wave feminists ruined this ideology - ElSherlock

23 Islamism

Islamism is a dangerous movement

Are you autistic. Seriously.

What is a religion doing on here - MChkflaguard_Yt

This is biggest danger

24 Maoism
25 Nationalism
26 Fundamentalism
27 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

28 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.

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.

29 Globalism

It's just stupid!

30 Anarcho-Fascism
31 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!

32 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

33 Marxism
34 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

35 National Socialism

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

36 Imperialism

Nationalism at it's worst. Basically an ideology based on invading or controlling countries and taking advantage of them. - DarkBoi-X

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.

37 Social Darwinism

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

Survival of the fittist

38 Left

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

Conseratives are so overrated... - MChkflaguard_Yt

39 Christian Democracy
40 Colonialism
41 Democracy

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

42 Statism

Worst Ideology ever

43 Anarcha-feminism

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

"REE ORANGE MAN BAD"

44 Technocracy

YEAH -James Hetfield

45 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

46 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!

47 Progressivism

This is a great ideology. It strips away the poison of reactionaries and allows people of any background to do well in life. There's also the pursuit of scientific and technological progress if that counts as a part of this. - DarkBoi-X

48 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.

49 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.

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

50 People who think "Zionism" is a real thing

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

AKA Illuminati conspiracy theorists.

Already here - AdamDestructorJr.
