Winni and others,
Here in American in particular...the duality..left/ right duality or if you prefer the left/right dichotomy is very popular as a population or soul maneuvering technique.
Very few people stop to think that there is little difference, in the long run, between the left and the right....only variations in methodology. Few people stop to think that behind the scenes both the left and the right are working together to maneuver the people in a desired direction.
Some people refer to this as a Hegelian Dialectic.
I am often want to liken it to two professional wrestlers..putting on a show for the audience. They go through the motions of beating each other up...even spilling some blood on occasion ..but in the end they both walk of and split the proceeds. Lawyers too.
To me being conservative is a different thing from being on the left or the right. I got disgusted with that left/right business years ago.
But this is not what is taught in public schools...nor on this computer. The left right paradigm is a powerful tool on the unwary...and in particular those easily swayed to join the mob to hunt down manufactured bad guys. Manufactured bad guys needed to keep people from seeing what is really happening to them....seeing behind the curtain. Good cop/bad
They love this manufactured/manipulated good cop/bad cop ..left/right template ..for keeping easily manipulated people on the puppet strings.
The other term I am often want to use to describe the scam as a whole..is...gaslighting.
Rewriting the history books is a necessary tool in the good cop/bad cop template to prevent thinking and permitting only predictable/controllable reactions...reactionarly....ie..revolutionary.
Or....if you prefer the Sharia/Islam....explaination......submission.
But your point referenced about right wing is very interesting and noted. I was not aware that Fascism had been re defined today in the left/right template but it fits within the politics or political education of today.

Winni, please please please (!!!) go to AMAZON.COM and stick in "America's Thirty Years War" by Balint Vazsonyi. I did last night after posting my last entry and found it IS available in paperback & hardcover ---- you have to scroll down a bit but it's there.
The separation of "fascism" as "right wing" and socialism as "left wing" is arbitrary and more "American" than anything else. A more honest division would be something that deliniates political system like the below:
FREEDOM<-----------------------[MIDDLE]--------------------------->SERVITUDE or BONDAGE.
"Right' or "Left" here really doesn't matter much.
Winni and TommyGun
Agree here ...you can wind up in bondage or lack of freedom by both paths...left or right...does not matter much. What is the essence. What is the substance...not the left/right counterfeit...used and misused to keep us off target."Right' or "Left" here really doesn't matter much.
I ordered that book in paperback Tommy.
