  1. We should immediately note that these words do not have universal conventional meanings that can be used by default. This means that when you see these words in someone's mouth, you can't immediately blurt out something like “you've got your philosophy or ideology mixed up” or “you've used these words incorrectly”, or start from your own meanings of these words, ascribe and prescribe them to others, as if your meanings are universal. You will first have to ask the author what he means by these words in this case and build a dialogue with him on this basis.

And by ideology — an already established system of values that is designed to guide the behavior of large groups of people, and therefore does not imply and often does not tolerate any overestimation.
