Syncretic politics

Syncretic politics or spectral-syncretic refers to politics outside the conventional left–right political spectrum. The term syncretic politics has been derived from the idea of syncretism (syncretic religion).[1] The main idea of syncretic politics is that taking political positions of neutrality by combining elements associated with the left-wing politics and right-wing politics can achieve a goal of reconciliation.[2][3][4] Since this umbrella term is defined by the negation of the two standard poles of a given one-dimensional political spectrum, it refers to quite heterogeneous approaches.

The Falange of Spain presented itself as syncretic.[5] Falangism has attacked both the left and the right as its "enemies", declaring itself to be neither left nor right, but a third position.[6]

Adolf Hitler, after criticizing both left and right-wing politics in Mein Kampf, presented fascism and Nazism as a politically syncretic "Third Way",[7] which expression has also been promoted by various post-1945 movements.[8]
