Our top 10 worst political ideologies list because over the course of human history there have been many bad ideas, but some are worst than others.
Top 10 Worst Political Ideologies
This semi-religious, semi-political ideology promotes terrorism.
Islamism, also called political Islam, a broad set of political ideologies that utilize and draw inspiration from Islamic symbols and traditions in pursuit of a sociopolitical objective.
Among the many disparate groups considered Islamist are reformist movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood as well as transnational jihadist movements such as al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL; also called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria [ISIS]).
Outright dictatorship and personality cult.
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.
In his 1955 speech, the first known to refer to Juche, Kim Il-sung said:
To make revolution in Korea we must know Korean history and geography as well as the customs of the Korean people.
#8 National Bolshevism
A mix of Fascism(If not, then Nationalism) and Communism, it’s essentially utter tyranny.
The name was initially applied to the Russian National Bolshevik Party (NBP)
Although abandoned by the Russian group as a name.
The term is still used to refer to a loose federation of National Bolshevik organizations that spreads across much of Europe.
National Bolshevism even has branches in Venezuela and Bolivia.
#7 Sharia Law
A supremacist ideology that has as it tenets in-laws that totally conflict with every conceivable human right.
Sharia Law allows for slavery, calls for the killing of non-Muslims unless they submit into dhimmitude.
Sharia laws also calls for the death of apostates and homosexuals. It also considers women chattel, Jews pigs, etc.
It is a cavalcade of murderous and hate-filled barbarity that should be outlawed in every civilized society.
Over 270 million people have been killed in the name of Islam.
Anarchism is pushed by people who want to do whatever they want with no consequences.
If it was implemented on a global scale, it would absolutely be one of the most dangerous ideologies and most likely one of the most deadly.
Anarchism would lead to a total collapse of society, leading to small groups attempting to seize power.
The most ironic part of Anarchism is the fact that which group ultimately gained power, would reinstate a government.
The reason Anarchism isn’t higher on the list is the fact that there are no large-scale examples on record because when implemented it doesn’t last very long.
Whoever said that Neo-Nazis need to be executed is probably a communist.
Neo-Nazism refers to the post-World War II militant, social, and political movements seeking to revive and implement Nazi ideology.
Neo-Nazis seek to employ their ideology to promote hatred and white supremacy, attack racial and ethnic minorities, and in some cases to create a fascist state.
It borrows elements from Nazi doctrine, including ultranationalism, racism, xenophobia, ableism, homophobia, anti-Romanyism, antisemitism, anti-communism, and creating a “Fourth Reich”.
Holocaust denial is common in neo-Nazi circles
Anarcho-Primitive is an ideology centered around stripping away modern technology, medicine, and science and going back to the stone age.
Anarcho-primitivism is a political ideology that advocates a return to non-“civilized” ways of life through deindustrialization, abolition of the division of labor or specialization, and abandonment of large-scale organization technologies.
Can you imagine how much death and suffering this would cause?
Not just from people dying of diseases or wounds that would be simple to cure using modern medicine, but from the amount of lawlessness.
Who was stupid enough to combine Nationalism and Totalitarianism?
Fascism is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.
The first fascist movements emerged in Italy during World War I, before spreading to other European countries.
Opposed to liberalism, democracy, Marxism, and anarchism, fascism is placed on the far-right within the traditional left-right spectrum.
Fascism is nationalist socialism while Communism is internationalist socialism.
Fascism plus genocide…Worst Idea Ever!
Should be number 1 except for the fact that Nazis killed 16 million (6 million Jews). While Communism killed an estimated 700-750 million.
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 long after Hitler went to hell, because it would have taken FOREVER to kill every single Jew, Slav, Communist, Gypsy, Homosexual, etc.
Communism killed an estimated 700-750 million…Nuff Said!
A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.
Personally, I think that communism is more of a system than an ideology, and each state which had a communist system each had a different ideology to go with it.
For example, the USSR followed Stalinism, while China had Maoism.
Only in a fantasy utopia world would Communism ever work.
