Bavarian People's Party
The BAVARIAN PEOPLE\'S PARTY (German : Bayerische Volkspartei; BVP) was the Bavarian branch of the Centre Party , a lay Roman Catholic party, which broke off from the rest of the party in 1918 to pursue a more conservative, more Bavarian particularist course. The party displayed monarchist leanings (because many Bavarians had never accepted the overthrow of the House of Wittelsbach in 1918) and there was a period of near separatism in the early 1920s, culminating in Gustav von Kahr 's unwillingness to abide by rulings from Berlin during the autumn crisis of 1923. This only came to an end with the shock of Adolf Hitler 's Beer Hall Putsch

List Of Political Ideologies
In social studies , a political ideology is a certain set of ethical ideals , principles, doctrines , myths or symbols of a social movement , institution , class or large group that explains how society should work, and offers some political and cultural blueprint for a certain social order. A political ideology largely concerns itself with how to allocate power and to what ends it should be used. Some parties follow a certain ideology very closely, while others may take broad inspiration from a group of related ideologies without specifically embracing any one of them. The popularity of an ideology is in part due to the influence of moral entrepreneurs, who sometimes act in their own interests. Political ideologies have two dimensions: * Goals: how society should be organized. * Methods: the most appropriate way to achieve this goal.An ideology is a collection of ideas

In politics , REGIONALISM is a political ideology that focuses on the national or normative interests of a particular region , group of regions or another subnational entity.
