Abstract
I somehow missed Craig Biddle's essay "Political 'Left' and 'Right' Properly Defined" when it was posted on TOS Blog, but I enjoyed reading it in the Fall [2012] issue of the journal.
To the Editor: I somehow missed Craig Biddle's essay "Political 'Left' and 'Right' Properly Defined" when it was posted on TOS Blog, but I enjoyed reading it in the Fall [2012] issue of the journal. The accompanying diagram that essentializes the political spectrum is wonderful. Ayn Rand had already clarified the fact that fascism and Nazism (which many regard as far-right) and communism (which is in fact far-left) are essentially the same and only superficially different, but this diagram really helps underscore that point in a visually clear format.
