For instance, in the contemporary USA 'liberalism' is an umbrella which encompasses everything between Socialism and Third-Way Neoliberalism, whereas 'conservativism' is another umbrella covering everything from Neoconservative-Neoliberalism to Hardline-Conservatism.
In other places "liberalism" has quasi-fused with "conservatism" and runs against an ideology named after some founding figure "Guy X-ism" - this is particularly common in Latin America, which loves to name political styles and ideologies after people, both living and dead both connected and unrelated to said ideology.

Ideology should be glasses, which distort our view, and the critique of ideology should be the opposite, like you take off the glasses so that you can finally see the way things really are. Ideology is our spontaneous relation to our social world, how we perceive each meaning and so on and so on.
To us, it doesn't sound like a belief system: This is because we are, all of us, ideologues. The ideologies that we accept are barely noticeable or totally invisible to us because their precepts and our personal beliefs are largely or wholly identical, so there are few or no noticeable differences.
Moreover, few ideologies can be fully explained by their adherents: Every ideology has had proponents who have proclaimed it as being non-ideological or post-ideological, and few have explicitly pushed their ideologies by calling them that:Academy of Social Sciences ASS The United Kingdom Association of Learned Societies in the Social Sciences formed in gave rise to the Academy of Learned Societies for the Social Sciences incorporated , which became the Academy of Social Sciences on ASS Commission on the Social Sciences Notes from the meeting on by Ron Johnston.
