First I want to explain what I mean by Ideological orthodoxy. It's essentially the adherence to a political or even religous ideology. In this thread in really only talking about political ideology. It's when someone picks a political label such as, feminist, republican, progressive, democrat, socialist, or libertarian...ect. The list goes on endlessly, and because of that label they adhere strictly to that ideology. It is more like a religion than a political philosophy. There are pitfalls, the biggest one I can point out is that if an opposing party comes up with a genuinely good idea it's considered blasphemy under the auspices of the ideology. But even worse is the idea thst only good things can come from such. My question is, can you free your mind from such limits? Do you find benifit being part of a political orthodoxy? Do you agree with me? Do you disagree?
