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. Typically, each ideology contains certain ideas on what it considers to be the best form of government (e.g. democracy or autocracy ) and the best economic system (e.g. capitalism or socialism ). Sometimes the same word is used to identify both an ideology and one of its main ideas. For instance, "socialism" may refer to an economic system, or it may refer to an ideology which supports that economic system

Liberalism
LIBERALISM is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality . Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas and programmes such as freedom of speech , freedom of the press , freedom of religion , free markets , civil rights , democratic societies, secular governments, gender equality , and international cooperation . Liberalism first became a distinct political movement during the Age of Enlightenment , when it became popular among philosophers and economists in the Western world . Liberalism rejected the prevailing social and political norms of hereditary privilege , state religion , absolute monarchy , and the Divine Right of Kings . The 17th-century philosopher John Locke is often credited with founding liberalism as a distinct philosophical tradition. Locke argued that each man has a natural right to life, liberty and property , while adding that governments must not violate these rights based on the social contract . Liberals opposed traditional conservatism and sought to replace absolutism in government with representative democracy and the rule of law . Leaders in the Glorious Revolution of 1688, the American Revolution of 1776, and the French Revolution of 1789 used liberal philosophy to justify the armed overthrow of royal tyranny

Nominal Identity
NOMINAL IDENTITY is the identity in name only as opposed to the individual experience of that identity. The concept is often used in sociology, psychology and linguistics. CONTENTS* 1 Social sciences * 1.1 Nominal identity in ethnicity * 2 Linguistics * 3 References SOCIAL SCIENCES Nominal identity is the name to which one identifies, or calls oneself (i.e. general "African American," "Irish," "Straight," "Gay," "Female," "Male"). Whereas VIRTUAL IDENTITY is the experience of that identity, "The latter is, in a sense, what the name means; this is primarily a matter of its consequences for those who bear it, and can change while the nominal identity remains the same (and vice versa)." Among those who self-identify as "gay," the term may not confer the same experience for two people or even between various geographical or cultural regions. Similarly, while one may talk about a "chair," "chair" itself can entail many forms, from arm chair to ladder back to even tree stump, if the experience of "chair" is something upon which a person sits. Pierre Bourdieu uses the term nominal identity in Distinction: A Social Critique of the Judgment of Taste to mean both that which the identity of a subject is named and also where identity is an insignificant measurement or representation of the "perceived reality" of a subject or phenomenon

Big Tent
In politics, a BIG TENT or CATCH-ALL party is a political party with membership of diverse viewpoints and ideologies. CONTENTS* 1 Examples * 1.1 United States * 1.2 India * 1.3 Italy * 1.4 United Kingdom * 2 Other examples * 3 See also * 4 References EXAMPLESUNITED STATESThe Democratic Party during the New Deal coalition , formed in support of Franklin D. Roosevelt 's New Deal policies from 1930s until 1960s, was a "big-tent" party. This coalition brought together labor unions , working-class voters, farm organizations, liberals, southern Democrats , African Americans , urban voters, and immigrants. While less of a big-tent today, the Democratic Party does retain "considerable ideological diversity," and political scientist William Mayer has shown "that the party's faithful consistently reflect a broad ideological and policy range than Republicans." The Libertarian Party , following the 1974 Dallas Accord , embraced the big tent idea to the extent it ensured that the anarchist-capitalist views would not be excluded from the majority minarchist party. INDIAThe Indian National Congress attracted support from Indians of all classes, castes and religions opposed to the British Empire

Political Spectrum
A POLITICAL SPECTRUM is a system of classifying different political positions upon one or more geometric axes that symbolize independent political dimensions. Most long-standing spectra include a right wing and left wing , which originally referred to seating arrangements in the French parliament after the Revolution
Revolution
(1789–1799). According to the simplest left–right axis, communism and socialism are usually regarded internationally as being on the left, opposite conservatism and capitalism on the right. Liberalism can mean different things in different contexts, sometimes on the left (social liberalism ), sometimes within libertarianism (classical liberalism ). Those with an intermediate outlook are classified as centrists or moderates. Politics
Politics
that rejects the conventional left–right spectrum is known as syncretic politics . Political scientists have frequently noted that a single left–right axis is insufficient for describing the existing variation in political beliefs and often include other axes. Though the descriptive words at polar opposites may vary, often in popular biaxial spectra the axes are split between sociocultural issues and economic issues, each scaling from some form of individualism (or government for the freedom of the individual) to some form of communitarianism (or government for the welfare of the community)
