Lots of things drive idiotic belief systems.

May I suggest you make specific points in the future, so you can succeed at communicating your thoughts? Abstract generalizations ALWAYS lead people to think of counter-examples. Indeed, that is kind of the function of abstract generalizations.

"Obsessed" is an ideological term, intended to pack an evaluation into the terminology, instead of making that evaluation explicitly, where it can be rationally criticized. IOW, the only one showing an ideological problem, is YOU, because you are seeking to protect your notions from an honest evaluation.

The Kernel Of Truth behind your words is that one faction makes their decisions based on principles. As that is the correct way to use reason, ie, applying deduction, there is no basis for a logical criticism.

Marxism has proven itself; the economic theory is illogical, the results of implementation universally wretched. Smart people don't trust marxism because smart people pay attention to track records.
