I really wonder how people can associate authoritarianism with freedom of market.

Probably simply because, in most Western countries, most political parties are aligned roughly along a diagonal line from left-wing libertarian to right-wing authoritarian. I do agree that it makes no sense, but people probably just got used to the right-wing parties being authoritarian and the left-wing parties being libertarian and then associated those together.

Well how about the Labour Party, UKIP and Conservatives all being more right wing than the BNP?

(For those not British)
Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_National_Party
The British National Party (BNP) is a far-right political party in the United Kingdom.

That chart doesn't mean anything. Its a gimmick. Its not a true representation of people's political spectrums.

By several measures, the BNP is more left-wing than the Tories or even Labour. They want trade controls over foreign goods, prosecution of the bankers associated with the '08 crash, "the renationalisation of monopoly utilities and services", "- The creation of a bulk transport tax regime that pushes supermarkets to supply more local and seasonal produce;" a fully public NHS, "Take all privatised social housing stock back under local democratically controlled council ownership," etc.

Being 'right wing' in terms of social policy does not imply being right-wing economically.

The rightward march continues:



I have become a lot less crazy over the past few weeks:



Definitive evidence that being politically left is directly correlated to being crazy.

It's not really my fault. Tony Abbott is destroying any faith I had in the ability of a government to spend rationally.
