The rapid and continuous growth of social networking sites has led to the emergence of many communities of communicating groups. Many of these groups discuss ideological and political topics. It is not uncommon that the participants in such discussions split into two or more subgroups. The members of each subgroup share the same opinion toward the discussion topic and are more likely to agree with members of the same subgroup and disagree with members from opposing subgroups.

There are men who are commonly stigmatized as moneta~
cranks. The monetary crank suggests a method for making
everybody prosperous by monetary measures. His plans are.
illusory. However, they are the consistent application of a monetary
ideology entirely approved by contemporary public opinion
and espoused by the policies of almost all governments.
The objections raised against these ideological errors by the
economists are not taken into account by the governments,
political parties, and the press....
Born amidst the furious social changes of the mid-1960s, postmodern architecture redefined the purposes of a prestigious profession. In this work, Magali Sarfatti Larson gives a bold and comprehensive account of the social, economic, and ideological shifts that cracked the modernist dogma and reintroduced historical allusion, diversity, and ornament into architectural discourse and practice.

This study compares the depicted reality the films present to
audiences with previous addiction cinema and with real-world
economic and cultural conditions. Since films privilege certain
viewpoints through representational strategies and by leaving
out alternatives, I also examine the ideologies of the films and
issues of textual silence. The study offers a critique of these
issues in the spirit of other well-known ideological film
studies, such as Ryan and Kellner's (1988) Camera Politica....
In For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto, Rothbard proposes a once-and-for-all escape from the two major political parties, the ideologies they embrace, and their central plans for using state power against people. Libertarianism is Rothbard’s radical alternative that says state power is unworkable and immoral and ought to be curbed and finally abolished.
The jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice generally demonstrates
that no rule of international law can be interpreted and applied without regard to
its innate values and the basic principles of human rights. Through its case-law the
ICJ has made immense contributions to the development of human rights law,
and in so doing continues to provide solutions to mounting international prob-
lems, such as terrorism and unilateral use of force.
Triết học càng không đồng nghĩa với bất cứ ý hệ (ideology) nào; càng không nhắm bảo vệ một chế độ, một tổ chức, một truyền thống, một tập quyền, một tôn giáo hay một giá trị nào. Ngoài ra, công năng của triết học cũng không phải chỉ hạn hẹp vào một công năng cố định, dẫu rằng công năng ấy cao quý và tuyệt vời.
The United States must restructure mathematics education--both what is learned and the way it is taught--if children are to develop the mathematical knowledge and skills they will need to be personally and professionally competent in the twenty-first century. Joining the recent reports that have opened a national dialogue on these issues, Reshaping School Mathematics focuses discussion on essential ideas that transcend details of current curricula or assessment results.
Others are more avowedly ‘political’ or polemical in intent. The ‘artistic’
and the ‘political’ are far from separate categories, however. Formal
experiment and departure from dominant conventions is, potentially, a
major resource for the deconstruction of dominant ideologies.
Since the issue of urban poverty cuts at the heart of social policy in the United States, it
is not surprising that ideology plays a substantial role in many of the debates about it. The
hypotheses often reflect ideological, as well as empirical, social science debates. This is
unavoidable. Nonetheless, the focal point of this article is not on ideology but rather on
what may reasonably be claimed to be known about inner-city poverty. Ideology may
well be critical to the decision about what to believe and what policies are to be preferred.
The total area network
The imperatives of technology and organisation, not the images of ideology, are what determine the shape of economic society J. K. Galbraith
It was not very long ago that users of the UK postal system had a choice of postboxes, one marked ‘local’, the other ‘national’. To use this system effectively, you had to know how it worked—that local letters would arrive more quickly, but would be delayed if misdirected through national routes. The current picture of information networks is analogous.

.Women, Islam and Modernity
In popular debates about reproductive and sexual rights, formal religions, especially Islam, are seen as barriers providing institutional and ideological resistance to women’s realization of reproductive and social autonomy. This book challenges such simplified views of Islam. Based on original fieldwork in Eastern Indonesia, the book explores the complex factors that affect how young Indonesian women form their sexual subjectivities.
"The Arguments of Agriculture is a delightful read for both the specialist and the person just getting to know the increasingly contested terrains of agricultural policy and ideology. The approach is even-banded, insightful, and faithful to diverse claims." - Frederick H. Buttel "Its well-planned format makes the book particularly useful for studying the philosophy, sociology, or economics of agricultural industry, as well as for environmental studies." - ENVIRONMENT
The ‘ideology’ of professional regulation can be viewed not simply as a mask for the
profession’ s activities but is implicated in the conditions that make accountancy possible. The
discourses that surround professions and are promoted by professionals are understood to
form an integral part of the social practices that facilitate, maintain and promote the
