IDEOLOGUE






The ideologue is an individual who views the world in terms of specific sets of doctrines, beliefs, creeds, convictions or principles, that are considered as absolute, true or inviolate, no matter how they may conflict with the actual state and reality of affairs and circumstance, and from which decisions are based concerning the interplay of the individual with any given moment of present reality. The general conception and usage of the term ideologue means one who is fixed, narrow minded, uncompromising, limited in intellectual scope, perhaps intolerant, tending to singular intellectual perspectives and issues. For instance the individual who will not have children on principle because the state of human affairs is considered incompatible with bringing children into the world, or the anti-abortionist who is against abortion under any circumstances. The propensity to Ideology can also be associated with persons who have limited experience and knowledge, as individualized circumstance, and thus must rely on limited understanding, general principles and formulas that are suppose to cover all situations.

Ideology is an inherent aspect of the Progressive Materialist perspective. Human created states and conditions may be foreign to the natural world of the Given Existence as progressive. The progressive imposes new states and conditions upon what is replaced. This entails an attitude of superior authority. This authority is greater than and authorizes the transformation and destruction of the pre-existent states and conditions they replace. Thus the progressive tends to embrace authority that enforces their developmental ideals. God is a progressive ideal as authority greater than the natural physical world. Country may be considered a progressed ideal as greater than any other nation, or to be preserved against anarchy, capitalism or socialism. The greater the ideal and the necessity to preserve it, the greater is the tendency or necessity to greater and more extensive authority.
