Talking About Politics: LEFT WING & RIGHT WING

Talking About Politics: LEFT WING & RIGHT WING

I left my heart in
San Francis-… Hi. James from engVid. I’d like to do a lesson
today with you on politics. I know, you’re used to grammar and vocabulary,
but it’s always good to expand your horizons, that means your learning abilities and look
at things that you may not need today but you will need in the future, especially when
you have, you know, educated conversations. In your own languages you often speak about
religion, politics, sexual relations, and in this lesson what I want to teach you is a
way to understand English terms, what they mean to us when we hear them and what we’re
trying to tell you when we’re saying them. That way you can get into political conversations,
and that doesn’t mean, you know, who’s right, who’s wrong, but be able to explain where
you’re from, what it’s like, and where we’re from and maybe understand
each other a little better. Are you ready? Let’s go to the board. I said I left my heart
in San Francisco. There’s a reason for it. Notice E says: “I’m a lefty.” Quick story for you
so you understand. A long time ago back in England
there were two houses. There’s the queen, I’m sure you probably know
that England has a queen, and they let the common people vote and there would be one
side where the people with title, or princes, and counts, and dukes would sit; another
side where the common people would sit. I’m wondering if you can figure
out which side which sat. Blah, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, I know, difficult. Let me explain. So if you were the king or queen you sat in the
middle, and you’d have your nobles, that’s your knights, your kings, your dukes, your princes,
barons; on the other side the common people. Well, I’ll let you know. This is my right side. On the right side the barons, and the kings,
and the dukes would sit; on the left side would be the common people. After a while what happened was people started
referring to people on politics as right and left. Why? Because on the right side, the nobles, the
kings, the princes, they wanted things to stay the same. They liked what they had, they didn’t
want to have anything to change. Of course, the common people who are on the
left side, they were the ones who had money and they were paying for things and not really
seeing things change, and they were like: “Hey, if we’re paying, we
should get to change things.” So this became known as “left wing” and “right
wing” because it was in the house of politics where the king would sit, there
was a left side and a right side. Today’s lesson is going to explain to you
what that old way of thinking has changed into in the modern day,
and where we sit now. You ready? Let’s go to the board. Okay. You see this thing here? It’s called a pendulum. A pendulum is basically you can have a string
with a rock, and once you move it, it goes back and forward, back
and forward, and swings. Politics, which is the business of people
being together, “polis” meaning people. That’s what it means. Politics. The people choose, and often sometimes they
change in the way they look at things. Center is when the
pendulum isn’t moving. Center. And as you can think, it’s
probably a nice place to be. But there’s more movement or activity when
the pendulum goes up to the right or up to the left. That’s when we see
a lot of changes. And it’s good to understand what terms
are used and how they affect us. So let’s start with… Well, let’s start with the
left, the common people. All right? Most of you would know the extreme
version if you’ve heard of it… Or let’s go here first. When we talk about left, we talk
about all for one and one for all. If you’re French, it’s
the three musketeers. One for one and one for all. It means we all work together for a
good community or a better community. No one person is
above the community. No one person is better
than the community. Okay? So that’s all for one. But we all will work for the individual, but
the community is the most important part. And that will help you understand the most
extreme form of left, left-sided politics which is communism,
which is communityism. Right? This is the most extreme form. An example of this would be in
1918 to 1991 in the U.S.S.R. We now call it Russia. Okay? What this means is the government is in control
of everything; the economy, how people make money, and how
land is given out. And the government tries to give
everybody the same amount of land. Everybody, I know it’s crazy, but hey,
that’s what they’re supposed to do. Everybody gets the same amount of land, the
same amount of money, and everybody gets jobs, and everybody does what they like to
do to help the community get better. That’s the book
communism, by the way. Real communism doesn’t work that way,
but that’s the way it should be. Normally when we think of communism we think
of the economy and how things work, which is the government controls how
things are made and what gets made. Okay? There’s no private
business or enterprise. You don’t have your own company. It belongs to the government, which belongs
to the community, which belongs to everyone. That’s the most extreme. As you can see, they tried this experiment from
1918 to 1991, and other countries have tried it. Didn’t quite work as well as we thought, so
people have kind of backed away from that. A lesser form or something not as
serious we have called socialism. Socialism is existing
right now in France. A country in Europe, in the middle of Europe, nice,
little country, and it’s a little different. They like some of the ideas of
communism, but they were like: “Dude, you gone too far. Sometimes I want to
go to Jeremy’s Bakery and eat from Jeremy’s. I don’t want state-run
bakery goods.” So what they said and what socialism
is about is we have to be social. Yes, we’re a community, but it’s more of our
interaction, how we work together, we’re social. All right? We’re not always one community. And what they say is: “Look, the government
runs a lot of the social programs.” In this case, things like daycare where babies
get taken care of or children get taken care of; medicine, when you go to the hospital;
social welfare, if you lose your job, the government gives you money; and retirement,
when you work no more and you don’t… You’re too old to work,
they give you money. In socialism what they say is very big and
important things-medicine, communications, roads-those are
government things. Business should have no
business in business. Or in other words: Business is not allowed
to be in because this is too important to the society. So this is about the community,
this is about the society. So you’re allowed to have
your own private business. So if you want to have a little English
school, no problem, have an English school. If you want to start your own
video company, go ahead. You want to start a hospital? Sorry, that’s the French
Government, not you. So they separate by saying the most important
things are run by the government, but you can have some private companies. So some private
companies are allowed. Cool? All right. Let’s go to my favourite place. Ta-da, it’s Canada. What? It’s in the center. That’s right, eh? Canada is central because they believe social
programs are necessary, so a little socialist, but they think sometimes people can make good
decisions and governments shouldn’t always tell you what to do. So they’re right in the middle. They’ve decided that we should have more
private business and social programs. So while in France you’ll notice medicine
is run by the government, in Canada you can have the government which does take care of
its people, but you can also have a private industry that can
take care of people. So if you don’t like the government’s business,
you can go out of it and say: “You know what? I want to go to a doctor.” In fact, we have our medicine paid for in
Canada, but you have to pay for a dentist. And in some cases the government will pay
for a dentist for you, so they balance or try to balance
private with social. Cool? All right. Okay, so when we… The pendulum swings to the right we go up
to conservatism, and we’re going to look at the United States of America. Sorry, Latin America, I know that you’re Americans
as well, but generally we consider in Canada “The United States of America”
its official title. Okay? So we’re not insulting you. In conservatism… Do you remember I talked about the rights,
they like things to stay the same? Well, also they like to be
able to do their own business. That’s part of being
conservative. And if we look up here, we’ll go here,
conservatism it starts one before all. They really care about
the individual. They want individual rights, not to
have government tell them what to do. They prefer lower taxes. They don’t want to pay taxes for a government
that’s not doing anything for them. They like less regulation, that means
less laws telling them what to do. It makes them a bit freer to
do what they wanted to do. And you have to remember if the people who
originally wanted this were knights, barons, and dukes who were independent people, who
had their own way of making money and took care of their own things, so they didn’t see
why a government or a king should be able to tell them what to do. And that’s where we have
American on conservatism. Some people would say it’s actually more moderate
than a lot of other countries, but when you think about it, most Americans will tell you
private business can do the job better than government and that’s why
they’re here over here. For instance, in America, private healthcare,
well, healthcare is done by insurance companies which people pay for. And I’ve made a small
mistake, here. When I said “medicine”, in
Canada, we pay for medicine. That’s in case… That’s drugs. We pay for our drugs. What we don’t pay
for is healthcare. Healthcare are your doctors. Okay? So healthcare. We don’t pay for our
healthcare or our doctors. United States, you do. Okay? Sorry, a little mistake there. But in the US you
do pay for this. We do pay for our drugs. Now, if we skip over here and we let the pendulum
go a little bit further, we go to the highest form of conservatism,
and that’s fascism. We can look here at Italy
from 1922 to 1945. Fascism is really interesting because, well,
in communism, the government runs everything. In Fascism the government
doesn’t run everything. They work with business so they like the idea
of business, but they do it for the country, for the nation because fascism has a lot to do
with what we call nationalism, caring about more the nation. In communism they care
more about the community. Fascism is more about the nation, not
necessarily the individual people. That’s why they can have business in
fascist states or fascist countries. Italy was a fascist country for a
pretty long time, 1922 to 1945. Yeah? Some people would say that there’s not much of
a difference between communism and fascism, and there is. Fascism is more national, so they do
whatever they’re doing is for the country. Remember, not necessarily the people but the
country itself, and they will do whatever to make the country great. Communism tends to want to spread,
it’s more international looking. All right? So now that we understand the pendulum and how
it swings, let’s see how well you understand left wing and right wing. One for all or one before all? Ready? Okay, so we talked before, we’re going to
do our quiz, and just a little hint for you on some things you’ve heard
before and may be confused by. Political systems and
economic systems go together. So many times when you hear communism, sometimes
you’re talking about the political system, sometimes they’re talking
about the economic system. Generally if you’re talking about communism,
as you can see here, they go hand in hand. If you have a communist government, you’ll
have a communist economic system because the economics of communism is to be in control,
the government controls how things are made, who makes them, and
where they’re made. Well, that’s going to have to have a political
system that follows that because you can’t really have a democracy where people vote, and
then the government tell them what’s going to be done and how. So generally, communism will be economics
and politics together, but people can refer or talk about them separately
as different things. So don’t get confused
with the two. You have to understand if they’re talking about
how things are done or how things are run. Okay? Socialism also has
politics and economics. In socialism for the politics, the government-once
again, notice how I talk about the government-gets to decide which is… Which things that they are in control of, from
healthcare, education, communications. Yeah. You think: “That’s private.” Some countries, no. The government decides what gets put on and
who gets to do it because they think it’s important for the society
more than the individual. Okay? And economics is the same thing. Well, if someone is making those decisions,
then they usually start telling people, who and what to do, who to do it, and
how to do it or when to do it. So these two tend to go together,
but they can be separate. Okay? Finally, this one is actually easy, capitalism
and conservatism usually go together. Capitalism, though, has the belief that private
hands or private companies make the best decisions better than governments. In conservative politics they think the individual
should be free to make the decision and that’s why these two go together rather well because
you get the individual who happens to be a private business owner,
they work well together. So, and sometimes these
couples go together. Not always, but you’ll find they generally do,
and you have to listen carefully sometimes because it can be confusing if you’re having
an economic conversation or political one. Okay? Let’s go to the board and do a very quick
test to see how well you understood before. What is communism and
which one’s capitalism? And if you notice my
Star Wars’ figures. I want you to take a good look here.
You go: “Which one’s which? Why are you using them?
Why are you using them?” Well, when we think more of the fascist kind of
governments, think more like a Darth Sidious. Okay? Individuals. Remember we talked about the
individual is more important? I’m not saying they’re all evil.
Okay? Fascism did have its time, it wasn’t a
good place, or it wasn’t a good thing. And you can think it’s a little dark,
but it’s about the individual. When we talk about
communism, this piece of… It’s more about the
collective of the community. You can see how communism
is about the community. Individual versus community.
Right? Okay, cool. I hope you got the
visuals, that’ll help you. Communism is a big piece of… Well, fascism can be a little bit evil
sometimes, it’s about the individual. The collective, the individual. Ready for your test? Let’s go. And those of you who are Star Wars
fans are like: “I think, I think not.” Well, that’s my… That’s Yoda.
Sorry. [Laughs] “Do not think.
Think…” Whatever. Let’s go to the board for
your quick quiz. Okay? Let’s talk about social… Okay, first one: “Communism and socialism are on the
__________ of the political pendulum.” Would that be the
left or the right? Communism and socialism. A bit tricky on that
one, but think about it. Na, na, na, na-na,
na, na, na, na. Hint, hint. Okay. Remember we talked about
the left in politics? It was for the people,
the common people. In “communism” we have community, and in
“socialism” we have social, which are people. So we would say it
was on the left. Yes, I know I put that piece on my
right shoulder, but it’s on the left. Left. All right? Good. Let’s try the next one.
You ready? “Moderate countries
__________ social programs. Moderate countries
__________ social programs.” Do they have them or
don’t they have them? O Canada. We’re so proud of that song. Yeah, some of you went: “Oh yeah,
Canada is central and moderate, and they have social
programs.” Right? They have social programs because moderate
means basically middle, so they’ll have some. Not everything, but some. A little less, well, much less in many cases
than the communism or socialist brothers, there. And the final question: “In countries that are conservative,
private businesses __________ allowed.” Are they allowed or not
allowed, what do you think? Hmm, well, here,
let’s take a look. We said conservative, and earlier on I told
you about capitalism and conservatism. If you put that that would be this, they are
allowed because capitalism usually goes with conservative countries. Right? Private business, private entities
or business for you. Cool? Anyway, I hope you enjoyed our
little chat together on politics. As I said before, it’s a bit of an advanced
lesson because some of you are still working on basic grammar or vocabulary. But you have to understand
that you have to grow and go. Right? So you may be here, but later on you’ll be
using these terms if you go to school or you have to take an IELTS exam or something
like that, these terms will be brought up. So if you have an understanding now,
it’ll be easier to deal with it later. All right? Anyway, look, you
have a good day. But before we go anywhere I want you to
go to my favourite place in the universe: www, what? eng, and I
always get this wrong, this one. Okay, got it right this time. eng as in engVid, eng as English,
v as in ( Okay? Don’t forget to subscribe, and as the pendulum
swings, it could be here, here, or here. I’m sure one day it’ll
be down here as well. But don’t forget to subscribe, and I look
forward to chatting with you soon. All right? Have a good one. And thanks, as always,
for being on engVid.


  1. I’m so not interested in politics and are forced to vote and absolutely hated voting day. Thank you for making voting understandable. May the force be with with you. Extra points for Star Wars figures.

  2. Just reading the whiteboard I don't think this guy knows his chops, Fascism has much more in common with Socialism and as such should be a characteristic of the Left… stick with English James.

  3. except facIsim is on the left. Fascism is state directed capitalism state directed private life. It falls on the left. Far right would be anarchy.

  4. Leftwing: Young, immature, no life experience , emotional wrecks. Rightwing: Regular mature logical folk.

  5. “Fascism” is not a political movement…. why do you say fascism is the same as nationalism, if you were an educated person you would know….. maybe you need to look at the thesaurus,,….. you ignorant “person” never are they in the same meaning……..

  6. Fascism on the right wing? Oh if you are joking, include nazism also. Lol. Leftists are a mess even in an english class.

  7. Thanks for saying that we should also learn to broaden our horizon rather than just the language itself

  8. I never cared about politics in school and I'm going to be 18 this year and will be able to vote so I want to educate myself more on politics.

  9. How did the dukes and knights and kings vote for conservatism in the USA if the USA was never a monarchy? Nice story, but it's not really true or accurate

  10. "..used to be called the USSR, we now call it Russia.."


    No we don't. What we call it, is a large country in the middle sort of – called the Russian Federation, with a bunch of other independent countries that used to be part of the Soviet Union, such as Ukraine, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Uzbekistan, etc.

    Lumping them all together and calling them 'Russia' is pretty offensive.

    And as for the story of the left and the right, that's not exactly true either. It actually stems from the French Revolution.

    But then you would know that, if you bothered researching it properly.

  11. JP has great intellectual ideas but he consistently brushes over the conundrum of the fact that many social activism is a result of lived realities and he barely has a pulse when talking about them. Rosa Parks – yah – sure she had a point – and the others – well, maybe I dunno. C'mon! If he wants the left to hear the message, dismissing realities of extreme state violence police harassment and little access to the justice system is not speaking truth to the issue.

  12. James. I enjoyed the video. I actually googled who are considered the right wing? And you video was recommended. TY. Was excellent. Well done. I feel empowered. Knowledge is Power.

  13. You made a mistake in the quiz: You said kings and queens sat in the middle, but in the quiz, your correct answer is the right side.

  14. You concentrate on war more than you should Jamarl, it wasn't the end of war that lead to second world war it was collapse of the economy. And war didn't win our way out of economic disaster and it never will. That's a false narrative. Doesn't surprise me that you remember a commercial, you lead your life according to Star Trek.

  15. The origins of the terms "left" and "right" to designate, respectively, liberals vs conservatives, trace back to the post-revolution National Assembly in France.

  16. Thanks man ! With all this stuff on tv i had to see what all tje fuss was about. Good job bro

  17. WRONG! Lefties have a fundamental misunderstanding of where Fascism lies. It has NOTHING to do with the Right here in the USA or Canada. His diamond shape illustration is taught by Lefties. Obama and the democrats are the ones who mixed government limits and rules with private business, banks and insurance, not the Right. If you want to be confused then go ahead and follow his circle of confusion. Its simple and straight forward and clear. Draw a straight line from left to right. Starting left is Warlord, then Patriarchy, Dictator, Communist, Socialist, Green Party, Fascist, Democrat, Centrist, Neoconservative, Republican, Constitutional Conservative, Libertarian, Anarchist, Sovereign Citizen. Trying to mix in which gov works closely with private enterprise is a Left Wing Tactic of ignorance. China is a perfect example of how wrong this guy is. The line goes straight from the left to right where the government or ruler wants more control and has harder penalty, to the Right where they want Less Gov, Less Taxation, More Individual Freedom. You see how easy it is? Its too easy for a Libtard because they have to confuse every fucking thing always.

  18. Umm this doesn’t make sense if right wing is being for the individual than fascism isn’t right wing because it’s focus was on the nation and not individual liberties

  19. Hhhmmm
    Democrats are for slavery and built based off that and Republicans were against slavery and fought against it.
    Democrats are for government control Republicans are not for big government.

  20. Facism was about the state above individualism which is more left than right. No individual was above the state. Communism no individual is above the collective. The collective make up the state. So they both are Anti individual. So there for both are left wing. Right wing is individualism so this guy is feeding us a line of BS… He is contradicting his on lesson. Come on man.. I thought I was going to learn something.

  21. You are the best. I don't matter if you are left or right, i love your lessons. I watched a few of your videos and i have already liked a lot. I am from Braziiiiilllllll.

  22. 11:20 — "In fascism they care more about nation, but in communism they care more about community" – complete ignorant statement.

    Fascio – "group, association," literally "bundle," from Latin fasces. Nazis – members of National Socialist German Workers' Party.

    All of them base their ideology of group rights trump individual rights. How can they be related to conservatism?

  23. One thing to mention. There are private hospitals in France for the rich who can pay out of pocket and want their healthcare right now.
    And in practice, Comminism and Fascism work the same (eg living in either Comunist China in 1955, Communist North Korea today, and in Facist Italy in 1940 is basicly the same).

  24. This video was excellent! Your way of explaining political philosophies was calm and pleasant. That's how it should be. But as a history student I have to say that the real situations in each explained system were more complicated and layerd than it is explained here.

  25. And then there’s Fucknut Wing, for the ignorant retarded slackers who believe in conspiracy theories on YouTube. You’re stupid even for Millennials. ?

  26. The term is usually said to have come from the French Revolution where the people who say on the right are the conservative group of revolutionaries that wanted to keep rules and then the left wing, the jacobins who wanted total rule to the common people, but this obviously has great consequences. That then caused the terror where a large group of the bourgeoisie got executed. There are many consequences to left wing politics including anarchism.

  27. The left wing fights for rights, women's reproductive rights, workers' rights, the climate, affordable housing. better and cheaper health care. The right wing are racists, propagate hate speech, are against refugees and immigrants rights and needs. HISTORICAL CONTRADICTION. Secretion of cortisol from oversized tonsils have it that right wingers fear others, change, competition. They are also close minded. It is not there fault, They are made like that genetically.  Ironic that in their extrme form they wished to put the ones they called the waek in gas chambers (infirms for instance Think of Stephen Hwkings) .

  28. Guys I know he got somethings wrong but he's an English teacher not a political teacher – I'm a conservative and I will always appreciate a man who imparts whatever knowledge he has – don't hate, appreciate and offer constructive criticism if not STFU…

  29. Oversized tonsils in people have them secrete excess amounts of cortisol making them mean and frighetened. This is the right wing. The left fights for rights. Reality check….Satan asked me 3 questions. I am God's Messenger. +++ Knock, Knock anyone home ?

  30. Ok. I understood. Well. I got a 69 scroe casue of misunderstading of direction. So when you say about it. Please explain it From our aspect. And got a 2 out of 3. And it was because of forgetting about moderate. I didn't think that was about Cnada. Actually. The Canada was having their social programs for some persons. ha…. my english….

  31. Friends! Russia is in deep trouble, extincting. Less then 90 millions of living here, while authorities either repeat fairy-tales about the quarter-century old statistics. With it's rulers, pushing the nation into the "friendly embraces" of terrible China. But if you say "Putin's regime", be acknowledged that it is the most part of rich people, who "fled" from Russia. Some of them made scandals before leaving Russia. Just to show off that they were opposition and therefore had to leave. Don't beleive them and don't provide them cooperation.

    I am not talking about common people. Most of the common people who'd fled ex-Soviet republics are victims. If they are not unexplainably rich.


  32. Funny. Working together as a community isn't a attribute of the left. They fight with each other more than they fight with the right. lol

  33. I am going to vote today in Canada and this lesson is very important to understand which party is great for our future as Canadian at large thank you for your explanation.

  34. this makes zero sense, Far right is ZERO GOVERNMENT ZERO TAXES
    Far left is 100% Government and 100% taxes.

    It is just that simple, your diagram makes zero sense.

  37. On fascism you miss the point. Mussolini was a admirer of communism but not based the idea of Engels and Marx. Instead of community control he believed in the nation state to control people. fascism and communism are not the same but are linked with each other. Both don't recognize the individual as the most important aspect of a society, Either the state of the community are central. Both systems are non democratic. Practically the power pyramids in both systems end with a single dictator or small elite ruling group. The fact that you associate conservatism with fascism makes this video much less valuable. It were the socialist after WO2 who projected the horrors of the war at the political right by creating an association between the term fascism and conservatism. In contradiction fascism is linked with socialism and it was Hitler with it's National Socialistic (Nationalsozialismus or nasism and so nazi) party who was good friends with the political ideas of mussolini. Both were not democratic, both were dictators, individualism was not recognized. so count your buttons… fascism is way closer to socialism tan it is to conservatism.

  39. Fascism was created by a communist, the word comes from a Latin phrase which means sticks, you can break a stick but that's not the case for a bunch of 'em. That's the whole idea, according to him it was also communism, but a more workable form, communism was for the community, but fascism was for the nation

  40. I read many books and the way you explain Left Vs Right concept is way more comprehensible than all the books I read. Excellent!

  41. Leftwing is a social construct. Mostly referred as communism. (=enslavement and destruction of the people and it's knowledge)

    "Right" is an individual construct mostly referred as fascism?
    But that's not right! This "right" just pure capitalism, NWO, enslavement of the whole human kind and destruction of nature.

    Real rightwing is a social construct too, but with a more fair system than communism. (=without the will to enslave or destroy everything (conservative))
    Real rightwing is no communism, fascism or capitalism.
    Real rightwing is pure national socialism.

    My question is: why do people always talk about "right" and "left" but never talk about national socialism?
    Why are people not seeing that national socialism is the truth for every living species on earth?

  42. You made a mess of the melody to "I left my heart in San Francisco", the terms "left" and "right" to describe political leanings originated in 17th century France, not England, and there is no such thing as the Queen of England. I had to stop watching… 🙂

  43. France isn't a socialist country. The government is at this moment leaning to the left, but it's not a good example of Socialism. Venezuela's a better one.

  44. I have two questions I would like to know. Why you like middle wing and other is what you mean Latin American that different from modern?

  45. From Lebanon to Chile, economic uncertainty is driving a wave of protests The people are fighting the Right wing or governments.

  46. I think most capitalism driven countries are leaning towards some socialist ideas. Both the left and right are present in capitalist economies so it's not as easy as the pendulum swing. Facisim and communism are both anti individualistic so bracketing facisim with capitalism isn't a great idea.

  47. Right wing views: If you want something you must work for it. Nothing in life comes easy that's worth it. : Left wing : I can stay in bed all day long and claim benefits you can't me work. I want what he has but I don't want to work for it. If you disagree with me you're racist. Give a 3 year old a loaded gun if the 3 year old kills himself or someone else,.why did that happen? Again obsessed with the word "Racist" yet are the biggest racist there is.
