The horseshoe theory asserts that the far-left and the far-right on the left-right political spectrum are not on the opposite and opposing ends of a linear political continuum. Rather, they closely resemble one another, analogous to the way that the opposite ends of a horseshoe are close together. The theory is attributed to French philosopher and writer Jean-Pierre Faye.[1] Proponents of the theory point to a number of similarities between the far-left and the far-right, including their supposed propensity to gravitate to authoritarianism or totalitarianism. However, the horseshoe theory has also received criticism.[2][3][4] The criticism is described on the English WIkipedia page: Horseshoe theory#Criticism.
