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
