1. According to your text, what is politics about? Politics is about power and influence- who gets what, when, and how- and politics is also  about ideas. 2. What is “political ideology”? It is an integrated set of political ideas about what constitutes the most equitable and just  political order.  It is concerned with the proper function of government, the issues of liberty  and equality, and the distribution of goods and services. 3. What are the two ideological positions of most Americans? Liberal and Conservative  4.  What do most Americans agree on?  Most Americans agree on the basic ideas of democracy and the precepts of American  political life. 5. Where do the differences between these two ideologies exist, on what matters do they  differ most? Liberalists assume that individuals are rational beings capable of overcoming obstacles to  progress without resorting to violence.  Conservatives emphases the value of tradition  and established practices as guides for the future. 6.  How do radical ideologies differ from mainstream ideologies? Mainstream ideology involves liberal and conservatives, while radical ideologies involve  democratic socialism and libertarianism, which challenges much of the existing social and  political order.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
