The European Union claims to protect the interest of other European nations, promising aid and defense of democracy and freedom. This is one example of one ideal. However, the ideals are of freedom and liberty are very fragile, specially when economic interests are under threat.

I'm referring to the current aggressions by Russia against Ukraine. The EU is wiping the sweat from the forehead and hiding behind the fact that Ukraine is neither an EU member nor a NATO member to not intervene. We are just watching as another country gets partitioned and plunged into civil war because of the oil and gas coming from Russia.
I would just like all of us to remember when Great Britain declared war on the Third Reich following the invasion of Poland. The second world war would have started sooner or later, but most likely if Great Britain had waited a couple of years to declare war there would have been no Jews left at all in Eastern Europe.
The point I am making is that we should be willing to make compromise and stand by our ideals without being energetically blackmailed. To more truly and actively defend the ideas we claim to uphold, not just trash them once Russia threatens to close the tap. This is but an example.

Ideology is the set of idealor principle that govern society or in this case how a political party or government make it's roadmap assisting to take decision for people. When we talk about rules or principles, it give the sense of rigidness which it is. Ideology are chains to our freedom. Moreover its some pre installed theory which may give many interpretation, but fails to analyse breaking through it's own barrier. It's like trying to reach different destination walking on same road again and Again. We know how foolish this sounds.

The socio-economic, demography ect of a country is ever changing scenario. To address these dynamic factor, the political leaders vision most be flexible, broad and tactical. All these features can't be obtained if the persons themselves are hindered by code and conduct of some particular ideology.

Let's us take example of China which follows communist ideology or say to do so. The pro communist leaders of China were against the open market policy because their ideology won't allow them. Had China follow their principles, they would have been far behind from what they are now. They knew they can't stick to their ideology if they have to go ahead
