    For American sensibilities born from classical liberal values, you’re correct.

    The political “left” is a big umbrella term, like the “right” is. Generally speaking, the left broadly wants distribution of resources and management to be more horizontal. The debate is how to achieve that. Some want total worker control, others believe a democratically elected government should be empowered to distribute wealth equitably. The most extreme and dystopian form is a parental centralised authority enforcing equality should do it, as you mentioned.

    On the right, they may believe in personal freedom but still uphold that human society still thrives in hierarchy. “You’re homeless? It is your fault and not my problem.” Many on the right believe you have to work hard to achieve your goals but through your own blood, sweat and tears. You have to keep up or you will be out competed. Some on the right still believe that government still has some role to help others, while some disagree. The most extreme form on the right is fascism, which advocates for total control of everything and order and hierarchy are utmost importance.

      You never notice how the crazy old men hiding up alone in the mountains wanting to be left alone by the government and everyone are somehow always called right wing when the government comes for them, often in a very fascist manner?

          Sometimes. Sometimes not, Anyways, there’s something very fishy or inconsistent with all these definitions. Rational anarchism still falls right, not left tho

            “Rational anarchism” isn’t the only type of anarchism.

                Anarcho-syndicalism to left. Anarcho-capitalism to the right.

                As others mentioned, you need to learn more about the topic.

                    I mentioned anarcho-syndicalism.

                    “Rational anarchism” isn’t a thing. I Googled it, and you just read it from a sci-fi novel, which is not an authoritative and academic source on the topic.

                    READ an actual authoritative and academic book on the topic.
