Kiri dan kanan (politik)

Dalam spektrum politik, sebuah ideologi, partai maupun posisi politik dapat diklasifikasikan dengan istilah kiri dan kanan. Sistem klasifikasi ini mempertentangkan politik sayap kiri dan sayap kanan.[1] Istilah ini berasal dari Prancis, dimana sayap kiri dianggap sebagai "partai gerakan" dan sayap kanan sebagai "partai keteraturan".[2][3][4][5] Posisi di tengah-tengah dua sayap ini disebut sentrisme atau posisi moderat.[1] Selain itu, pada kenyataannya seseorang atau suatu kelompok dapat saja memiliki posisi sayap kiri dalam suatu hal dan sayap kanan dalam hal lain.[6]

Ideologi kiri dan kanan


Pada umumnya, sayap kiri diasosiasikan dengan ide-ide seperti kebebasan, persamaan derajat, solidaritas, pembelaan hak-hak, perjuangan sosial, reformasi dan internasionalisme, sedangkan sayap kanan diasosiasikan dengan ide-ide seperti hirarki, keteraturan, kewajiban, tradisi, nasionalisme, dan mematuhi pihak berwenang.[7]

Kelompok-kelompok yang berbeda dapat diklasifikasikan ke sayap kiri maupun kanan. Pengamat politik biasanya mengelompokkan anarkisme,[8][9] komunisme, sosialisme, sosialisme demokrasi,[10] libertarianisme kiri, progresivisme, liberalisme sosial,[11][12] persamaan ras[13] dan gerakan buruh[14] ke kelompok sayap kiri. Konservatisme, libertarianisme kanan,[15] neokonservatisme, imperialisme, monarkisme,[16] fasisme,[17] reaksionerisme, dan tradisionalisme, biasanya dianggap sayap kanan.

Berbagai ideologi politik, seperti demokrasi Kristen,[18] progresivisme, beberapa bentuk liberalisme, Pancasila,[19][20] dan sentrisme radikal, dapat diklasifikasikan sebagai sentris.[1]

Berikut adalah ideologi politik kontemporer paling utama menurut posisinya.
