No, Everything is NOT Ideology!

I was told today that everything is ideology.

The problem with such a statement — everything is X — is that if everything is X, then equally nothing is X. It ceases to be a definition precisely because, encompassing everything, it lacks definition.

Marx defined ideology as being the opposite of science. I will accept that definition, even as I will now note that Marxism itself is now…




I take a complexity approach to understanding and interpreting economics and politics. I consider our civil society to be made up of subsets of self-organizing network processes that interact to create our civil society. This is a new liberalism (neither left nor right).
