‘The clash of the Titans: the macro-ideologies’ moves on from analysing ideologies to survey the forms that political ideologies have adopted. The prevailing ideologies in the 20th-century have sought to offer solutions to all the important political issues confronting society. These macro-ideologies have sought social and political dominance on both national and international levels. Liberalism, conservatism, socialism, fascism, communism, and other ideologies have shaped the political experience of the modern world and each is considered in turn. In totalitarian ideologies, these struggles for dominance have resulted in epic, and often bloody, confrontations.
