What determines what is “left” and what is “right” politically and socially? What are some of the core values of each ideology and how are they manifested in today’s society? Essentially, it comes down to collective vs. individual ethics. The left believes in collectivism and the right, individualism. Communism, socialism, and fascism are all examples of collectivist socio-economic societies. The right seeks to conserve Western Civilization, the Left seeks to tear it down and replace it with a collectivist Utopia. The problem with Utopias is they cannot exist without a high degree of authoritarianism.
In the podcast, I refer to a chart that lists several core values of the left and the corresponding value of the right.
