Ideology as common sense is forcing people to operate with a system of traces that they have no inventory for. His theory is that perpetuating an ideology works best when the people you are trying to control do not know what they don’t know.

This is giving people a misinterpretation of what life should be about and that's happiness, good doing, and virtuous instead he gives the image of greed, gluttony, and pride.

What I've learned in class applies to this topic because it highlights the wrong doings of some celebrities like Kanye West and how he actually influences the minds of other in the world and how his wrong doing and self interest in himself can actually affect the mind of others and the lives they will want to live. To solve this, I think we need to apply the ethical position of the principle of universalizability which is "An act is morally acceptable if, and only if, its maxim is universalizability" (Garcia,16).
