On believing firmly in the state's right to decide over every aspect of people's personal life, yes. Hitler and Mussolini would probably be even a bit more authoritarian, probably in the +8 to +9 range... On economic issues though, both unpleasant characters were far to the left of that though, probably even left of centre. In my opinion a score like that would place him probably much more accurately in the company of Pinochet... (which would in my opinion be about equally as unpleasant...)

Hitler is in the right quadrant on the website.

Mussolini advocated for corporatism, which is the cornerstone of left wing politics.

Hitler was a socialist! All these regimes failed! Euro followed it and now Nobama is???
The question is why? He is not stupid, but clever and want to destroy the USA and bring it to a 3 world country. Soro's is backing a dollar collapse.

Which is exactly what I'm saying as well

I'd put both Hitler and Mussolini somewhere in the red quadrant, Hitler around -2 on E, and +9 on A/L, Mussolini probably something like -4 on E and +8 on A/L. A bit further left, one should find Stalin at around -8/+9. His score seems much more remniscent of someone like Augusto Pinochet to me...

I still wonder why there is no-one within a large radius of me though...

Nah, your score on the authoritarian part is borderline fascist. Probably even straight fascist. Thatcher was annoyingly in favour of a powerful state, but not to that extreme, I'd say she would probably end up more around +3 on the A/L bit, and around +7 on the Eco. L/R bit.

Still, it would've been a great thing to humanity if the provo's would've gotten her in Brighton back in 85.
