Ideology is Essential To Democracy

Ideology is essential to democracy. There must be competing ideas for people to choose between. 

However, ideologies should not be adhered to so rigidly as to prevent action.

Strict adherence to an ideology makes one incoherent and unlikeable.

At their best, ideologies provide a loose but solid and necessary framework for seeing the world.
