By definition, the "ideologue's" contracted perspective ignores or contradicts the broader considerations of reality. Blindly self-enamored of a sense of theoretical goodness, the afflicted ideologue would then impose his false thinking upon others.

Where does society's greater interest lie? In sympathizing with flash mobs, lawless trespassers, thugs who vandalize, rob and burn down their own city (then expect taxpayers to fund rebuilding costs)?

Societal morality is increasingly venturing into realms of "imaginary goodness," wherein a contrived or secondary issue trumps reality.
