A political ideology is a collection of philosophical ideals, principles and doctrines that provide a basis for interpreting and evaluating the morality and appropriateness of one’s own and others’ behavior and social policies, as well as the agencies that promote them. Although many ideologies exist (anarchism, communism, fascism, etc.), the most dominant in America are conservatism and liberalism. The values that characterize these ideologies have changed over time. Conservatism is generally characterized by a preference for tradition, a desire for stability, individualism and free enterprise.
