ideology?

Dale Cresap's picture

Are you an ideologue? These are most commonly known as conservatives and liberals although there are other possibilities. Most people have a leaning toward and some degree of attachment to one side or the other. One distinguishing characteristic of ideologues is that they blame all the problems of society on easily identifiable groups of people who are not like them. The left and the right have different groups of enemies, but they begin with each other and the groups are roughly mirror images. Can you see problems with this approach, that it is divisive and not a way to find the truth?
