The market of competing ideas is produced by valuation production systems and encoded by signification recording processes; manifesting the machinic operability of Invasive Ideologies. The market of competing ideas is full of misinformation and bad conscience, but the competitive position an Invasive Ideology takes is frequently shaped by market forces rather than an intrinsic quality of the ideology itself. In our assessment of why an ideological system that might have been friendly has now become fundamentalist and adversarial, we are foolish to believe it is an innate problem of race, gender, sexuality, politics, or sacred texts. These elements may have recursive influence, certainly; but the unilateral pursuit of ideological monopoly, the forceful struggle toward Hegemonic Truth, is a result of the socioeconomic forces of ideological system exchanges in which polarizing re-territorialization is accomplished.
There are six primary forces influencing the strategic positioning of an Invasive Ideology:
1) Direct Rivalry with adversary-systems that are in open, direct competition for the same “customer”
2) The Bargaining Power of Believers
3) The Bargaining Power of Clerics
4) The Threat of New Ideologies
5) The Threat of Substitute Beliefs
6) The Genetic Capital of Will-to-Power.
These six forces, in addition to the stage of ideological maturity and the constraints of liquidity and resources, provide a comprehensive framework of analysis for predicting the macro-organic trajectory of an ideology’s Sociopolitical Product strategy and operationalization.
