Ideological Enclosure

I use this expression to refer to the situation which arises when an individual or group sees everything from the perspective dictated by the ideology. Any individual or group of individuals adhering to an ideology is bound to be enclosed within it to some extent, because an ideology is a way of interpreting one’s business in the world. An ideology is a way of interpreting one’s business in the world. An ideology shapes the world within which one lives.
