The way everyone hears it goes like this,

Both extreme left and extreme right ideologies use state power to dictate their priorities and requirements to the people. Imagine the "spectrum" of political orientations/organizations as being printed on a strip of paper, with individual rights/constitutionalist/libertarian ideology being in the center, the extreme left (state power enforcing the "dictatorship of the proletariat"/supreme soviet committee edicts) on one end and the extreme right (state power enforcing the fascist union of corporate and nationalist interests) on the other end. Now bend the strip until the ends meet. Now you have a circle, with individual liberty serving as the cornerstone of government function at one location, and the exercise of state power at the expense of individuality at the location 180 degrees opposite the first. The only difference between the extreme "left" and the extreme "right" is the absence of corporations run for the benefit of private stockholders in the "extreme left" arrangement. Otherwise, they sit right next to one another on the circle due to their overwhelming similarities.
