Often though many will plunge will out completely understand the ideology they claim to adhere to.
As a negative side effect some use zealotry as a proxy for reasonable certainty.
And by this according to the level of conservative thinking they can develop a lens through which all information they receive is filtered and judged based on predeterminly held "values".
This is one of the greatest positives I see of philosophy, as any who truly embrace it are basically required to review all of ones preconcieved notions and values.
Sadly some seem to get too intwined with particular schools of philosophy that they end up often forsaking the original spirit of it all.
Then again interperatation and dogma seem to have an part in any way of thinking. Philosophy included, so who's to say what is truly the spirit of it all... though I think that line of think is correct, to the poin of me claiming philosophy as a Form or Universal.
Rather than as some think, a type of thinking invented by the ancient greeks, and I blame than interperatation to those who are too fixated on trying to catalogue everything without checking their sources.
"Fascism combats, and must combat, without respite or pity, not intelligence, but intellectualism—which is, as I have indicated, a sickness of the intellect" - Giovanni Gentile
”After visiting these places, you can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”- John F. Kennedy
