Far-right politics or extreme-right politics are right-wing politics to the
right of the mainstream centre right on the traditional left-right spectrum.
They often involve a focus on tradition as opposed to policies and customs
that are regarded as reflective of modernism. They tend to include disregard
or disdain for egalitarianism, if not overt support for social inequality and
social hierarchy, elements of social conservatism and opposition to most
forms of liberalism and socialism. The terms are commonly used to describe
fascism, neo-fascism and other ideologies or organizations that feature
extreme nationalist, chauvinist, xenophobic, racist or reactionary views.
Some far-right movements, such as the Nazis, have pursued oppression and
genocide against groups of people on the basis of their alleged inferiority
or their alleged threat to the nation or state.
