Sarah Jessica Parker
The prevailing ideology of the modern west - which is political economy - is in the doghouse. Having failed to notice atmospheric pollution, the economists then frightened themselves with the sort of financial crisis they said they had abolished.
Ideology and communication more often than not run into each other rather than complement each other. Principle and communication work together. Ideology and communication often work apart.

Ludwig von Mises
I'm not trying to convert the entire nation of Israel and the entire nation of Palestine to Christianity.
