    With the way our world is globalizing today, it is fair for some to think that the era of ideology is dead. What do you guys think??

    Internet helps formerly separated ideologists communicate.

    Identify "the way" (the method) and timeframe of this globalisation effect.

    Give reasons why it is "fair" to think so.

    The word ideology (or ideologies in its plural form) in my book has a specific definition, that which is a system or collection of ideas and/or ideals (be they moral, ethical, philosophical, cultural, etc. or as a combination of...) with specific goal(s) based on merits that the holdees prefer and/or find in favor for. One approach that you may want to consider is to make a sample list of ideologies that you find may or has dropped out of favor, and working towards if the notion of ideologies (as an era) possibly dying out in a possible future (although I do not see how that is possible, since our species have a tendency to idealise just about anything possible; be it in the Arts, belief systems- political, cultural, religious, etc.). I apologise for the lack of line breaks in my post, as the forum does not seem to accept line breaks from my tablet/mobile phone when making a post).

    On a sort-of-related note: is globalisation itself not a result of an (several) ideolog[y/ies]?
    That/ those of the companies/ organisation actually effecting the globalisation...

    Just what I was going to say. There are at least two new ideologies: Globalization is a Good Thing and Globalization is a Bad Thing. (Of course, one of those is wrong.)

    Exactly.
    It's, like so much else humans do, a mixed bag.
    Fixed polarised views are ALWAYS AND UNFAILINGLY STUPID.
    And you'll never convince me otherwise.

    Oxymoron?

    No, not quite. Deliberate self-contradiction, maybe?

    Or maybe ... absurd, casuistic, cockeyed, fallacious, false, fatuous, faulty, groundless, hollow, implausible, inconclusive, incongruous, inconsequent, inconsistent, incorrect, invalid, irrational, irrelevant, mad, meaningless, not following, nutty, off the wall, preposterous, screwy, self-contradictory , senseless, sophistic, sophistical, specious, spurious, unconnected, unproved, unreasonable, unscientific, unsound, unsubstantial, untenable, wacky, without basis, without foundation.

    Take your pick!

    I thought CM was referring to
    "Fixed polarised views are ALWAYS AND UNFAILINGLY STUPID."
    Dywyddyr has a fixed polarised view that fixed polarised views are ALWAYS AND UNFAILINGLY STUPID.

    It is similar to
    "I never make predictions. I never have and I never will."

    {edit} Ah - it is just the use of the word 'pun' that is under debate. I got my wires crossed methinks.

    I'm sure there is a proper word for this but I don't know what it is is. It is more than just exaggeration, hyperbole or auxesis .

    Could be a form of paraprosdokia.

    I had to look that word up in Wikipedia. They had some funny examples. This was my favorite.
