Ideology Quotes

Whoever today speaks of human existence in terms of power, efficiency, and “historical tasks” is an actual or potential assassin.

Albert Camus (1913-1960, French Existential Writer)


Methods of thought which claim to give the lead to our world in the name of revolution have become, in reality, ideologies of consent and not of rebellion. 

Albert Camus (1913-1960, French Existential Writer)


It is possible to lead astray an entire generation, to strike it blind, to drive it insane, to direct it towards a false goal. Napoleon proved this.

Alexander Herzen (1812-1870, Russian Journalist, Political Thinker)


Our blight is ideologies — they are the long-expected Antichrist!

Carl Jung (1875-1961, Swiss Psychiatrist)


There cannot be peaceful coexistence in the ideological realm. Peaceful coexistence corrupts.

Jiang Qing (1914-1991, Chinese Politician)


Ideologies have no heart of their own. They’re the whores and angels of our striving selves.

John Le Carre


Art and ideology often interact on each other; but the plain fact is that both spring from a common source. Both draw on human experience to explain mankind to itself; both attempt, in very different ways, to assemble coherence from seemingly unrelated phenomena; both stand guard for us against chaos.

Kenneth Tynan (1927-1980, British Critic)


Now different races and nationalities cherish different ideals of society that stink in each other’s nostrils with an offensiveness beyond the power of any but the most monstrous private deed.

Rebecca West (1892-1983, British Author)


If you take away ideology, you are left with a case by case ethics which in practice ends up as me first, me only, and in rampant greed.

Richard A. Nelson


What persuades men and women to mistake each other from time to time for gods or vermin is ideology. One can understand well enough how human beings may struggle and murder for good material reasons — reasons connected, for instance, with their physical survival. It is much harder to grasp how they may come to do so in the name of something as apparently abstract as ideas. Yet ideas are what men and women live by, and will occasionally die for.

Terry Eagleton (1943-, British Critic)


There are no more ideologies in the authentic sense of false consciousness, only advertisements for the world through its duplication and the provocative lie which does not seek belief but commands silence.

Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969, German Philosopher, Sociologist, Music Critic)


Everything ideological possesses meaning: it represents, depicts, or stands for something lying outside itself. In other words, it is a sign. Without signs there is no ideology.

N. Volosinov
