Systematic ideologySystematic ideology
is a study of ideologies
founded in the late 1930s
in and around London
by Harold Walsby, George Walford and others. It seeks to understand the origin and development of ideologies, how ideologies and ideological groups work together, and the possibilites of guiding the development of ideologies on a global scale. The basic premise of systematic ideology is that ideology is the central motivator
in human affairs; that the characteristics that make up the major ideologies come in sets; that those sets of characteristics form a series; and that the ideological series forms a system.
