It's the "Political Ring"* theory that I proposed and no one ever commented on.
*Rather than a "Spectrum" as represented by a straight line, politics are represented by a ring, with left and right set east and west, then anarchy and totalitarianism set opposite each other, north and south.
Consider that the stated, ultimate goal of Communism is purportedly-----anarchy, no government at all. Thus covering the entire arc from tyranny to liberty on the left side. (Assuming that it actually runs it's course as advertized.)
Modern day conservatism purports to seek ever less government, with the extreme right apparently suggesting anarchy. (While espousing ideas that stink of government invasive to even the most private aspects of our lives, interestingly enough.) Thus covering the arc on the right.
I know this is not a perfect example, but do you see what I'm getting at?
A "Ring"---Not a straight line.
