Political Ideology

One of the things I’ve noticed is many posts that even examining political ideology centers on left-center-right, conservative-moderate-liberal/progressive, Hawk or Dove or pro-war or anti-war, and etc that overlooks, omits, or ignores political maneuvering for political expediency. The purpose of this article is an attempt to explain political ideology.

Political Ideology is an Ideology based on politics and political philosophies, and political ideology formed by groups of individuals who share that political ideology and political philosophies. When people refer to left-center-right, conservative-moderate-liberal or progressive, and etc, people are categorizing a wide array of political ideologies through political maneuvering for political expediency.

For example, social conservatives argue Top-Down government is needed to compel social conservative values onto the populace while social liberals argue the same for social liberal values.
Hasn’t either side heard of Orthodox and Unorthodox Churches are both covered by the First Amendment? Yet, this isn’t the path that social conservatives and social liberals have taken.

 

As general historical rules of thumb, which some of have been used in movies.
‘Once you take command, you’re on your own.’
‘Those who aid in granting others power becomes the agents of their own destruction.’
‘Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it’.

“An ethical philosophy in which the happiness of the greatest number of people in the society is considered the greatest good. According to this philosophy, an action is morally right if its consequences lead to happiness (absence of pain), and wrong if it ends in unhappiness (pain).

Since the link between actions and their happy or unhappy outcomes depends on the circumstances, no moral principle is absolute or necessary in itself under utilitarianism. Proposed by the English philosopher-reformer Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) in his 1789 book Principles Of Morals And Legislation it was developed by the English philosopher-economist John Stuart Mill (1806-73) in his 1863 book Utilitarianism.”
In other words, Utilitarianism utilizes the greatest good, popular vote, democracy, usefulness, and etc for political expediency in political ambitions by political maneuvering.
To put it another way, you’re looking at the tamer version of balance of power geopolitics.
