Political Ideology

... 1) Everyone have their own political ideology and opinions in what’s happening in the world right now. I would categorize myself as a Liberal. Liberal and conservatives have their own view in how they see certain issues. However, I can be liberal in some issues and conservative in other issues. Being a Muslim, how I view things can be different from anyone who doesn’t share the same faith as me. For example, same sex marriage is legal in some states in the United States. Religion wise, I totally against same sex marriage because it is forbidden in Islam and been regarded as a sinful act. From the perspective of humanity, same sex marriage would make no sense because the couples cannot reproduce an heir. Besides that, there are also different opinions on abortion. Muslims regard abortion as wrong and forbidden but many accept it may be permitted in certain cases. From my understanding, abortion on the ground of financial reason or not be able to take care of the baby when the baby growing up is a great sin in Islam. In my opinion, the mother should be allowed to abort her baby if it’s because of poverty. The reason is if the mother cannot provide the baby with food and shelter than there is no point of keeping the child. Every child deserves the basic needs to grow up. The reason I mention this is because I don’t view all issues from Islamic perspectives. Some of the things you just need to be logical and reasonable. My ideology would base on liberalism and use of Islam......

Ideology in Media

...The concept of ideology within the media is an arguably complicated term with numerous definitions depending on the context in which it is used. In everyday language, it can often be used as an insult to charge someone with being ‘ideological’, this label accusing individuals of sticking to their beliefs regardless of hard evidence showing otherwise. When the followers of Karl Marx speak of ideology, they often mean ‘the belief systems that help to justify the actions of those in power by distorting and misrepresenting power’ (Croteau 2010, p. 159). However, in this literature review, the implication of the term ‘Ideology’ will be defined by Associate Professor of Communication at Indiana University, Illana Gershon, as “a set of beliefs about communicative technologies with which users and designers explain perceived media structure and meaning” (2010, p. 3) Gershon expands upon this definition, explaining that ideologies are a set of beliefs that each person will compose in their own mind, mouldings people’s understandings regarding their use of technology and media. Ideologies, however, can also be shaped through the individual's use of media and interaction with others through them. Linda Kenix, Associate Professor of Social and Political Sciences notes, ‘When individuals' media ideologies differ, it can often lead to times in which tensions arise and can cause confusion, misunderstanding and eventually conflict between the individual users and the media community’......

Political ideology is the beliefs or a philosophy pertaining to religion, social, cultural, and economic affairs by the majority of people with in a society.

Conservatives are quite the opposite of what Liberals represent. The conservatives prefer individuals to be held personally responsible for their own wellbeing. They prefer the traditional views and values and is more comfortable with slow or moderate change. They believe the government should have limited say when it comes to regulating the economy. Libertarian beliefs are more geared toward free will, with opposing government interference in personal and economic liberties. When amending......

...Ideology Note: these are ‘generalizations’ and are not ‘all inclusive’… An ideology is a collection of ideas, typically containing ideas on what it considers to be the best form of government (democracy, theocracy, etc), & the best economic system (capitalism, socialism, etc). Sometimes the same word is used to identify both an ideology & one of its main ideas, e.g., "socialism" may refer to an economic system, or to an ideology which supports that economic system. - Political ideologies generally have two dimensions: Goals: (how society should work or be arranged) and Methods: (the most appropriate ways to achieve the ideal arrangement). - Ideology is basically constant, & we generally use a straight line ‘left is liberal & right is conservative’ approach to identify their position on the political spectrum, then we superimpose political parties on top of this political spectrum…to change political party affiliation is relatively easy, it requires much more to change your ideology. Ideology is more like ‘political culture’: who you ‘really are’, enduring values & beliefs that do not routinely change easily, although special circumstances such as wars, economic depressions or natural disasters can help hasten changes. Liberals & Conservatives: these labels have changed over time and ‘ideology’ is not necessarily a good way to define political preference. Currently, members of the Democratic Party are generally considered Liberals (or favoring liberal ideology)......

Ideologies Defined

...Distinguish between liberal and conservative ideologies in the discipline of political philosophy. How is this distinction different from the language of liberal and conservative as it relates to the American political spectrum? Introduced by the intellectuals of the Enlightenment and given legitimacy by the economics of the Industrial Revolution, Liberalism in Europe developed and newly espoused the notion that man was free to choose to live his life and earn his way as he saw fit. Personal freedom was an inherent right, and that society would best be served by each individual being able to perform to the best of his ability, and that the needs of society as a whole would be better met by a population choosing to perform its function rather than a predetermined one. The Industrial Revolution made this possible by allowing one person to essentially perform the function of the Guild vis a vis quality control and design, and allowing creativity by allowing anyone to produce any product or service at will, departing from the rigidity of the Guild mechanism. Bringing his own product to the marketplace monetized the common merchant, and what would become the free market began to take shape. A free market allows for the marketplace to determine it’s own needs, and provides the opportunity for a person with the notion of fulfilling that need to do so necessarily creating competition, ultimately advancing society at it’s own pace, rather than having needs and roles...

Ideologies and Ideologies in Media

...Many refer to ideology as the study of ideas, it is defined as a system of ideas and ideals, especially one which forms the basis of economic or political theory and policy or a particular way of thinking and seeing the world that makes the existing organization of social relation appear natural and inevitable (Grossberg, 193). In more simple words, it is commonly referred to as “false consciousness,” originally from politics, ideology refers to the way people think about the world and their ideal concept of how to live in the world. A very board term that has different branches and can relate to many different parts of media; it is a system of values, attitudes and beliefs that are important to an individual, group or society. All forms of media can have a great ideological influence on their audience and most media portrays a dominant message that can define the values and beliefs of an individual or society whether in a positive or a negative way. Dominant ideologies are ideologies that are used very commonly by the media that are sometimes mistaken for reality. They are always reflected in the media, and reflect dominate social relations and support dominant social groups. If those in charge of our society – politicians, corporate executives, and owners of press and television – can dominate our ideas, they will be secure in their power. They will not need soldiers patrolling the streets. We will control ourselves. (Zinn, 1991) Zinn’s understanding of ideology and how......

A Government

...Hi A government is the system by which a state or community is controlled.[1] In the Commonwealth of Nations, the word government is also used more narrowly to refer to the collective group of people that exercises executive authority in a state.[2][3][4] This usage is analogous to what is called an "administration" in American English. Furthermore, especially in American English, the concepts of the state and the government may be used synonymously to refer to the person or group of people exercising authority over a politically organized territory.[5][6] Finally, government is also sometimes used in English as a synonym for governance. In the case of its broad associative definition, government normally consists of legislators, administrators, and arbitrators. Government is the means by which state policy is enforced, as well as the mechanism for determining the policy of the state. A form of government, or form of state governance, refers to the set of political systems and institutions that make up the organisation of a specific government. Government of any kind currently affects every human activity in many important ways. For this reason, political scientists generally argue that government should not be studied by itself; but s In political science, it has long been a goal to create a typology or taxonomy of polities, as typologies of political systems are not obvious.[7] It is especially important in the political science fields of comparative politics and......

...Edexcel A2 Political Ideologies 3 Socialism A Short-answer questions 1 Why did Marx believe that capitalism was doomed to collapse? • Capitalism is doomed to collapse because of its own internal contradictions. • Capitalism embodies its own antithesis, the proletariat, seen by Marx as the ‘gravedigger’ of capitalism. • Capitalism is defined by the creation of profit. This is only possible by the exploitation of the proletariat — that is, by the extraction of surplus value from the workers by the bourgeoisie. • Marx believed that the inherent contradictions of capitalism would cause the proletariat to achieve revolutionary class consciousness. This would occur as capitalism went through a series of deepening crises, leading to the immiseration of the proletariat. This would inevitably result in a proletarian revolution which was destined to overthrow capitalism. 2 Distinguish between fundamentalist and revisionist socialism. • Fundamentalist socialism rejects capitalism entirely and seeks to abolish it. It usually attributes the flaws of capitalism to private property for private profit, and seeks to establish socialism in the form of common ownership and very substantial equality of outcome. The Marxist or communist tradition is the clearest example of fundamentalist socialism. However, some fundamentalists pursue their goals by the parliamentary road — i.e. it is possible to be ‘fundamentalist democrats’ in the parliamentary sense.......

Dalam hal agama, penganut agama Buddha di Korea Utara bernasib lebih baik daripada kelompok agama lainnya, khususnya Kristen, yang menghadapi hukuman dari pihak penguasa. Penganut agama Buddha juga diberi dana oleh pemerintah untuk mempromosikan agama itu karena Buddha memainkan peran integral di dalam budaya tradisional Korea.Sedangkan untuk kelompok agama lainnya tidak diperbolehkan untuk berkembang di Korea Utara. Mrs X pada Washington hearing menyatakan bahwa “Well you can consider the entire North Korean society as some sort of religious group with the religious leader being Kim Il-sung and their Bible being the Juche or self-reliance ideology. So if there are any other religions be that Christianity or Catholicism or whatever, if there’s any other religions that are somewhat in competition with that -- their main religion then it will be undermining the basic foundation of the Kim Il-sung religion so that will mean more difficulty for the leadership to maintain or the control of the society. So if the North Koreans start to realize that Kim Il-sung might not be the real god and there might be some other god out there then it’s not a good thing for the leadership and that’s why they wanted to avoid all the other religions occurring in North Korean society and persecuted other religions.” Dikatakan bahwa sejak rezim Kim Il-Sung sebenarnya sudah terjadi pelanggaran HAM......

...‘Ideologies have become irrelevant to the discussion of politics since the collapse of the communism in East Europe.’(Fukuyama francis,1989) I disagree with this statement in a large extent. Overview Fukuyama published the idea of ‘end of ideology’, which became a controversial issue in 1989. No doubt, fascism and communism had both lost their appeal after the collapse of the communism in east Europe. In the postwar period, the three ideologies-liberalism, socialism and conservation –came to accept the common goal of capitalism. ( Lee, 1990) However, it does not mean that capitalism is a triumph of the world. Jacques mentions that there are many types of Marxism. For instance, orthodox Marxism is produced by the unique history tradition. Therefore, when one specific communism is collapsed, it does not mean that the communism is collapsed. In fact, there still are states that pursue other types of communism. People reflect and become interested in Marxist if capitalism cannot bring them into utopian era. There is no way to say that ideologies are becoming irrelevant to the discussion of politics. Also, All human are political thinkers. We all have difficult thoughts and diverse perceptions when the things happen around us. Modern ideologies such as feminism and ecologism are witnessed. From the observations and judgments, we can find out our own belief of what our world is and what we ought to be. ‘equality , ’rights’ ,’freedom’ ,’justice’ are the......

Ideology Survey

...Running Head: Ideology Survey Ideology Survey October 26, 2011 1. First, record the exact category results from the both surveys in a Word document.  Results from Beyond Red vs. Blue: Based on my responses I am considered to be a New Coalition Democrat. Results from Advocates for Self Government: Based on my responses I am considered Centrist. After reviewing these results I do not agree with the results from Beyond red vs. Blue. I do not consider myself as being a Republican nor do I support their views. As far as the results from Advocates for Self Government, I do agree with me being a Centrist. I like what they stand for and how they support individual freedom. 2. Which political party do your results (regardless of whether you agree with them or not) most closely align with? Please justify your selection. According to my responses to the Political Responses, the party I am closely related to is the Republicans. I have never thought of myself as being a Republican. The Republican Party is a group of mostly wealthy people who I feel look out for the rich and overlook the poor. 3. Which one of these minor parties could you see growing in popularity in future years, and why? Do feel free to select from other minor parties that are not on the list. The third party I see growing in the future would be The Working Families Party. This party is composed of people who I feel has the people in mind when it comes down to democratic views.

Ideologies one of the primary functions of government? (4 points) Governments function is to produce and manage public goods. 2) According to this article what are public goods?( 4 points) Public goods would be all of the things that all people, or at least a larger majority, want but don’t want to pay for as individuals 3) What are the negatives to government providing public goods according to this article? (4 points) “Governments’ spending on public goods involves waste, corruption, and is often badly executed. In the private economy, the pressures of competition tend to minimize these kinds of costs, although government surely has no monopoly on waste (think Enron) or bad execution (automobile recalls). “ 4) Would you characterize this author as more of a liberal or more of a conservative and why? It is really important to explain your reasoning for identifying the author as liberal or conservative, as it is a bit tricky with this article, but it is possible to misdiagnosis the author’s ideology and still earn points by using certain supporting arguments. (4 points) I would consider the author as liberal character, simply because today’s liberals continue to believe that government should or even has responsibility to stay active, and in this particular case its according taxpayers and obligations coming from tax money. I think that he is acting on the border I would say because from my point of view he is keeping that government should regulate and keep a hand......

Political Ideology

...Political Ideology I have chosen the Republican ideological position, commonly referred to as the Grand Old Party (G.O.P). The Republican Party absorbs Libertarianism, fiscal Conservatism, and concepts of Progressivism. I believe in the voice of capitalism, competition, and that the overall welfare of the people comes first before all else. Since the creation of the Republican Party in the mid nineteenth century, the G.O.P has grown to represent social conservatism. Despite misplaced stigma that Republicans do not support the interests of the common people, history has shown that their view directs more to being responsible with government expenditures and justifying government activities with more than just goodwill for all citizens. The Republican Party first gained popularity through the election of Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln, as well as the Republicans of that time, was a strong anti-slavery activist. Lincoln led the way towards the end of slavery. Republican ideology brought equality to slaves. Republican ideology has also supported the people’s rights to bear arms, which has been an issue of heavy debate that finally found victory in the McDonalds v. Chicago case. The plaintiffs in the case argued that the state of Chicago had infringed on their Second Amendment rights. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Second Amendment and its enforcement in all states. Former Republican President George Bush was a strong supporter of the NRA and Second...
