New Re: Stalin ad right-winger?
I suspect we are running into a difference in definition here.

To me, a lone dictatorship is a right wing political structure. A left wing tyranny would be something like the French Revolution, where a pure majority rules system is combined with a willingness to override yesterdays vote and to vote somebody to an execution.

New Not sure I agree on that one either
Chavez definitely runs on a left/liberal platform and there are many who call him a dictator.

I'm not sure dictator == Right Wing. Nor does it == Left Wing.
New you need to re-read your history
the sans coulottes were never a pure majority.
thanx,

New I thought the left wing defined
by vilification of private property, egalitarianism, collectivism (how it coexists with cult of personality, I don't know but id does), worship of State.

The places where extreme left wing (Marxist) people take power start out very much like your idea of "left", and end up with a dictatorship.
