    I think for unit 4 the 45m will be: Ecologism, Nationalism and Multiculturalism.
    As for unit 3B I haven't even tried to predict it but they haven't asked a "To what extent is conservatism a single doctrine question" so... it may be that

    Well usually for the single doctrine questions I would use the core values/themes and say how they agree but then I would say how they diverge.

    E.g. "Single doctrine because: all feminists seek to challenge patriarchy. However RadFems... On the other hand LibFem... Alternatively SocFem... Thus it can be argued that it is not a single doctrine"

    So for Conservatism I would do that and talk about how TradCon differs/is similar to LNR/CNR?
    (Sorry for the feminist example, it was the easiest one to use)

    As far as I know, "single doctrine" means "one idea". So the question is basically asking you if "X" is an ideology of one idea. There may be themes that run through the ideology, but at the end of the day, the answer should most certainly be no because there are different subbranches and they may have different means/goals/views on Human nature etc.

    So for example of one of my paragraphs would look like:
    "One may argue that X is a single doctrine due to the fact... However it can be argued that X is not as Y (sub-branch 1) think... Whereas Z (sub-branch 2) think... Thus it can be argued X is not a single doctrine"

    so if the qu was on liberalism or conservatism how would you tackle that?

    Would you compare modern liberalism to classical and traditional conservatism with the neo conservatism?
