Anarchists are almost always communists so that’s wrong.

Anarchy means absolutely zero government. That is the opposite of communism.

Well, yes, except that communist idealists say true communism is stateless.

Communism is literally statist ultraliberalism which calls for the redistribution of wealth among citizens and idolization of the leader. And guess who redistributes said wealth? A communist state.

Read. I didn’t say I believe this. I said communist idealists believe it. Back to the original point, most anarchists are also communists.

Right there it is in the first paragraph. You can find countless additional sources if you care to look for them. It’s wise to understand who those people are and what they think. They’re delusional, but believers.

This is why when someone says “Cuba” they say “that’s not true communism.”
“Soviet union.”
“That’s not true communism.”

It’s a very self-serving and academic position, but that’s the basis of their denial every time another communist state fails.

Know your opponents. Understand them and the world will make more sense to you.

Okie is correct - Marxist-Communism is not a state run theory. The theory is that no government is required because everyone works for society benefit. Its a pipedream that led to Lenin-communism which was an iron fist state.

One of many reasons why communism (regardless if people think "true communism" has been tried or not is a fallacy for morons and the economic illiterates)

Right. It’s a juvenile and immature philosophy as it rails against all that is human nature. Nobody wants to work and give all their stuff to everyone else. The likelihood of it working in practice is less likely than a real Santa clause who visits every house in a single night. This is why there’s NEVER been a true communist society according to their belief. Even the Israeli kibbutz have a government with rules that can get you ejected from the group if you don’t work, confirm, behave. I suppose a small group of hippies hiding in the woods somewhere would represent the most successful form of communism there’s ever been. Even these groups, however, disband after the hippies grow up a little.

Your policies on clubbing seals has a lot to be desired.

A one-dimension spectrum for politics? Infantile.

Unfortunately most people can't understand more than that.

Nope. Both are atrociously inaccurate.

Even the four dimensional political compass has its inaccuracies when it comes to the placements of fluid extreme ideologies, I've seen fascism placed on the far right corner of authoritarian right and another where fascism was placed on the same quadrant, but further left almost so it was on the left authoritarian quadrant.

How is a constitution anarchy...

Also I would say neither of those are an accurate political spectrum... You need more planes

A Constitution is not anarchy. Anarchy is on the end. The Constitution is closer to anarchy (no government) as it is a restraining document, than either of the current parties.

Why would we not be taught the political spectrum as it relates to our politics? Of course the American left is very different from the European left. But in American politics, that's not the most important concept. Left and right in America, even if they don't correspond to left and right elsewhere, aren't wrong or irrelevant and I don't think it's bad to teach those, especially when teaching about American politics.

The one on the right needs more dimensions than left and right

This is why the Democratic Party needs to break up, they are either all moving closer to Marxism or half the party is and the moderate Dems are being drug into shitty waters.
