Ideologies. Right and Left? Liberalism, Conservatism, Socialism, and Fascism Chapter 3, p.50-74 Politics, Power, and the Common Good Chapter III: Liberalism, Conservatism, Socialism, and Fascism This chapter explains how ideologies are a type of belief system and can ask as a lens through which one tries to understand and analyze aspects of the world, politics, the role of humans in society, etc. Therefore, people who hold a certain political ideology, such as liberalism, would look at the world thru the lens of the importance of individual freedom. Ideologies in history have been used to mobilize cohesive social movements and effect change, although groups such as the Nazis defended their actions on the basis of adhering to their particular ideologies. Liberalism, conservatism, socialism, and fascism all differ in terms of key values, political systems, rights, morality, as well as other themes. Within these 4 ideologies are further classifications, based on particularities of belief. What is important to note is that even within “socialism” for example, there are many different versions of ideas that people believe are important to uphold and these differences are what cause phenomena such as political opposition, changes in domestic and foreign government policy, formation of new political parties, etc. It is also interesting to note the purpose of classifying different ideologies in terms of being more “left” or more “right”, as the notions of these four main ideologies differ in terms of the historical period and the country in question. For example, conservatism in Britain in the 19 th century disfavoured an open free trade economy, whereas American conservatism developed into values of business and free market.

    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.
