Glossary
Specialized vocabulary appearing at the George Walford International Essay Prize.

A superficial survey of ideological behaviour produces an impression of chaos, and this has led many students of this subject to regard ideology as a perversion of the intellect, something that ought to be eliminated. [Harold] Walsby looked deeper. He saw that running through the conflict and disorder there are certain regularities, and that these indicate the presence of a small number of broad, general, enduring ideologies. Walsby himself did not distinguish these by any special term but they are now known as the major ideologies. According to Walsby they form a hierarchic system which has developed through time. – George Walford: Ideology as Self-Determined

Systematic ideology is a theory in progress. The name of this theory has changed over time. Harold Walsby referred to his idea as psychopolitics. Others called it Walsby’s theory, or ‘the theory’ or ‘ideology.’ George Walford named this theory systematic ideology. Similarly, some of the details of this theory have changed over time. Political manifestations of the major ideologies have been reclassified, and the major ideologies themselves have been given new names. The following master list of all nomenclature for the ideological series was made with the assistance of John Rowan.

Harold Walsby wrote about ideological groups in “Atoms and Ideology,” which appeared in The New Age of Atomics No. 1 (October 1946):
Eidostatic:
– Primitive Subjectivism (Fascism)
– Dualistic Idealism (Conservatism)
Eidostatic / Eidodynamic:
– Mechanistic Materialism (Liberalism / Socialism)
Eidodynamic:
– Evolutionary Materialism (Socialism)
– Dialectical Materialism (Communism)
– Objective Subjectivism (Anarchism)

The Walsby Society (1953 – 1979) suggested The ‘Ipsden Nomenclaturem’ named after the nearest town (see Reminiscences of the Walsby Society by Adrian Williams):
Eidostatic:
– Protostatic
– Epistatic
– Parastatic
Eidodynamic:
– Protodynamic
– Epidynamic
– Paradynamic
Metadynamic

George Walford suggested a color scheme for the major ideologies in A New Departure from Ideological Commentary 2, November 1979.
– Brown
– Blue
– Yellow
– Pink
– Red
– Black

George Hay suggested naming the major ideologies after how a group or individual determines its worth. This was first mentioned by George Walford in Names For the Major Ideologies (Ideological Commentary 6, March 1980) and expanded upon by George Hay in The Ideology of an Explosion (Ideological Commentary 7, April 1980):
– Stasis determined
– Custom determined
– Adaption determined
– Evolution determined
– Change determined
– Abolition determined
– Un/Self determined

George Walford published Beyond Politics in 1990. Beyond Politics also suggests political manifestations of the major ideologies:
– Non-Political
– Conservative
– Liberal
– Socialist
– Communist
– Anarchist
– Systematic Ideology

George Walford published Meet Systematic Ideology in Ideological Commentary from January 1985 to August 1994:
Eidostatic:
– Expediency
– Domination / Principle
– Precision
Eidodynamic:
– Reform
– Revolution
– Repudiation
Metadynamic:
– Ideology of Ideologies
