So I'm interested in ideologies and the assumptions and value sets and worldviews that lie behind them.

What has kept me up lately, and what I don't pretend to understand is what is happening today.

When someone claims to represent your ideology but actually represents nothing of the sort, what causes people who hold that ideology to accept and embrace that person, shifting their ideology in the process? They aren't even ideologues any more, so what are they? Opportunists? Or is ideology not even the issue, and people just like to feel as if they've won? I'm out of touch.
