Things You Believe (But Don't Live By)
Ideology is a declaration of faith, or more precisely fantasy, used to attack the real world and get revenge on it out of anger for not sizing up well. One can hit back by any means necessary, so the usual approach is to invent outlandish statements declaring insightful progress, new truths, or moral superiority, yet never a higher quality outcome.
Through ideology, one can claim an imaginary world to create a transgressive identity, such as a stylish communist, anarchist, or flat-earther.
But no one who claims these identities lives by them. They are like Halloween costumes worn in public for effect, not actual beliefs.
Someone actually trying to live as a communist, anarchist, or leftist would either have to compromise their beliefs to live among modern societies or set up a cult compound and get others to labor on behalf of their glorious system.
You could dress up as a pirate and use sailor lingo to impress people with your exotic image, but it's just a pose. Those spouting insane ideology don't actually believe it would work, and ignore and defy even the precepts they claim to follow.
We don't take them seriously enough to point our their hypocrisy, nor expect honesty or rationality from them. In any case, it's generally rude to point out that someone is a liar, so liars run wild with insane statements about nutty ideologies.
