Let me first say that the notion that there are immutable laws of nature, the idea that there are universal constants (including mathematical ones, even the speed of light) with which we can multiply the multitude of existential variables and confidently formulate an approach to reality that truly and comprehensively reflects what is going on, we are illuded. The only reason, in my opinion, we have those laws and those constants is that without them the whole structure of acquired human knowledge would crumble. And who wants that, right?

Having said that, I believe ideology has become an essential coalescing artifact in the domain of human discourse and culture, but one that is, nonetheless, completely oblivious of the dual nature of existence and its ambiguous potentialities. The real question is, how do ideas become toxic, how they go from excellent tools for apprehending complex realities to outright demonic forces of darkness and a launch board for the most exacerbating human madness? Chances are, that a fundamental lack in our understanding of the electric base that supports all cosmic realities, including thought, may be the principle culprit. All manifest entities have a positive and negative potential in them. Give it enough time and put it under the right pressure and the most positive of occurrences would flip on itself and become an unrecognizable version of it original aspect. As a matter of fact, you take one pole to its extreme and it becomes its opposite. In other words, our problem is that we think “linearly” instead of “spirally”, we are paradox-dumb, we can’t hold both opposites in our brains and still function and we don’t’ recognize that life is complex, well, rather hardware-nut crazy.

Why do we tend to glean one attribute -one that is circumstantially evident- of a phenomena over another (like for example my opinion is better, I am intelligent, tobacco is bad, money is evil, etc..) when both potentials are equally present, in actuality or probability? I guess it is intellectual unsophistication on the part of the individual, his blatant lack of critical sense and his lazy, expedient, unreflective tendency to accept positions as valid only because they are held by other -equally gullible- mortals, or they are sanctioned by some “highly esteemed” authoritative entity or person (that may have vested interests in the matter), without due diligence or objective parsing of the facts and evidence.

You are understanding it right. I am not saying that some ideologies are better than others, I am saying that all ideologies are flawed; the most virtuous of movements may reach an apogy of glory but will ineluctably rot and degenerate, the noblest of actions will eventually show the reverse casting of itself, it is just the second law of thermodynamics in full act ion… unless of course they -ideas, creeds, movements- experience some kind of “perturbation” and rise to higher order ; )

What is the alternative? If your intent is legitimate and non-self-interested (this implies a need for some cojones and a degree of sacrifice and lets not be naive here, because the universe will not reward you just because you are honest and want to do the right thing, capisci?), for now, what you can do is just be humble and wear your beliefs lightly. The fact that ideologies are toxic doesn’t necessary mean that we must (or can) live without them, but that these must be dealt with like any other dangerous substance: study its chemistry, handle with special care, calibrate the dose, don’t take too little so that it has no effect, and don’t take too much so that it kills you. Manage life’s paradoxical and dualistic economy wisely; always keep a ” door open” and don’t be obsessed with meaning and closure; instead of impulsively jumping on every trendy ideological bandwagon coming along and buying every horse shit coming down the culture-pipe, probe the edges, doubt, ask intelligent questions, don’t’ be lazy, do your own research. This alone won’t solve our problems but would surely get us started.
