Abstract

The article elaborates on the thesis that in modern society ideology should be qualitatively different from its classical counterparts from past eras. A new quality of modern ideology can develop due to its dynamic restructuring that will make the ideology a “living” one – able to adapt to the fast changes in the external and internal environments. We have shown that the traditional approach to building ideological parties “first ideology, and then – a political organisation” should be changed to the opposite: first one has to create “living” political organisations and the main function of these organisations will consist in producing a full-fledged “living ideology” in a real-time mode by efforts of the collective intelligence generated as a result of synchronisation of the mental activity of their members. The backbone component in the structure of the “living ideology” has to be the organisational ideal as an integral part of the social ideal. The organisational ideal should be almost fully realised in newly created “living” political organisations from the start through the introduction of a pre-selected and coherent organisational structure by initiators.

A “living” political subject-organisation can and should become the bridge from our time to the future, providing today the path for party members to follow in their intra-organisational interaction so that tomorrow they could lead the entire society and based on the gained experience could reproduce in future the pre-tested, verified and improved social ideal.

Keywords: political parties, political myth, political ideology, 'living ideology', organisational ideal, dynamic networks
