  Richard A Reuss with JoAnne C. Reuss, American Folk Music and Left Wing Politics
In our information-overloaded, media-rich Western states at the beginning of the twenty-first century, it is difficult to imagine the mindset of folk musicians of the nineteenth and earlier centuries when rights of free speech were tenuous, and the dissemination of information less bountiful.

 Far right - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The imprecise use of the terms "left" and "right" in politics, and there being no absolute consensus as to what the "archetypes" of left and right are, has led to a number of disputes over the proper usage of "far-right" and "far-left" other than as general terms of derision.
In his essay "Left and Right: the Prospects for Liberty" [1] and "Confessions of a Right-Wing Liberal" [2], Murray Rothbard even put libertarianism on the "left", claiming that conservatives are the right and socialists merely "middle-of-the road".
This interpretation of "far right" especially lost favor in the decades following the Revolutions of 1848 as a return to the Ancien Régime became increasingly implausible.
