When you think about it, ideologies are parasites. Just as Darwin’s
insect can infect a fly’s brain, thus directing the fly to work for it
instead of for the fly’s own welfare, so an ideology can infect the
human brain to best perpetuate itself.

Consider a man directing a plane towards a wall. Surely this man would
much rather go home to enjoy a sumptuous meal with his wife and his
children but here he is holding the controls that will lead to his own
demise. He is infected by an ideology. He is not only about to lose
his life but with it all his hopes, his ideas, and his dreams. No
longer can he help his brother or his friends and he leaves his wife
with the difficult task of bringing up his children all on her own.

Worse still, can you see a man willingly take his loving wife and his
beautiful daughters out, look straight into their fear filled eyes
then kill them? No man would even think of doing that but an ideology
can and often does.

Ideologies show no compassion for humans –or for human nature for
that matter– while there appears many types of ideologies– Fascism,
Communism tried to crush the human spirit but at great cost we
survived those earlier infections but now ideologies are thriving
everywhere and we need to find a way of curbing their insatiable
thirst. Ideologies still remain highly active and dangerous to all of
us.. Remember once you are infected you will do whatever it wants you
to do.
Question everything, demand material, measurable evidence always.
