Agreed. The Nazis and Communists were competitors rather than opposites. Their intense rivalry was read by outsiders as putting them at opposite ideological extremes, rather than as a simple struggle for power. I'd still be wary of characterizing Nazism as "left" or "right" though.

I agree, the problem is the left has monopolized the political spectrum leaving out non socialist elements as much as possible.Mention John Locke and they will blank out.At least that is my experience.I do see a great danger in a linear political scale as it leaves very little room to manoeuvre.
