Ideology and Idiotology

I have concluded that we do not have an ideology, we have an idiotology. Ideology is defined as:  "A system of ideas and ideals, especially one that forms the basis of economic or political theory and policy.." According to Louis Althusser, ideology "can be described as a set of conscious and unconscious ideas that make up one's beliefs, goals, expectations, and motivations." Our current idiotology is based on belief in:  the Capitalist system, the Male-dominant system, Wars forever, Progress based on debt, Failing to Feed people, Medicine that causes health problems, Education that constricts consciousness, Business that competes, Allowing 1% of the people to own everything, Destruction of the environment, Religions based on rules made up by humans, Monsanto et al.      


  • Yes, I share the same frustration that you expressed. Big hugs, Randall The main point is, we still have a lot of work to do to raise consciousness to a higher level. A lot has been done, but a lot more must be done.

  • You mentioned “male dominant systems”. One of the things I am missing in the world today is the good, protecting male energy. It seems to me that there are attempts to afeminize men in order to make them believe they are bad and without personal power.

  • I probably shouldn’t laugh, but your comment made me laugh out loud. So true! We used to be so much more advanced. We took this path into technology to get to the point of this internet, which is supposed to remind us that we can learn to communicate with anyone anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice. But somehow we’ve failed to notice the significance of our creation!

  • You’re right, Randall…a LOT of work to do yet. I sometimes wonder if we’ll know when we’re “there”…and then I remember that success and “getting there” is different for each generation! I guess that’s why it’s important to enjoy the journey!!
