    It might be different across the various units but what structure do you guys adopt for top band ,15 markers ?
    Ideologies for me. I write a brief transitionary sentence, or define a doctrine/principle (depending on what the question is tbh, this might seem vague but there is a broad range of questions). Then I aim to write 3 or 4 points, which are justifications or explanations - again, depending on the question. I usually get As in class essays using a similar structure.

    I think that the 45 markers will be
    Anarchism: collectivism vs. individualism
    Conservatism: pragmatism vs. principle
    Liberalism: State

    For the 15 markers, I'd say
    Socialism: Collectivism
    Socialism: Fundamentalism vs. Revisionism
    Liberalism: Economic vs. social liberalism
    Conservatism: Tradition and continuity
    Anarchism: differences with Marxism

    Mention how liberalism was a result of the Enlightenment, people were beginning to think rationally and that traditional ideas were being rejected in favour of ideas that were a result of reason and logical thinking. Ideas like autonomy and how people could tolerate other people's ideas and discuss them were also a consequence.

    Implications include representative democracy, toleration and freedom.

    It's not the same answer but you could use the same points.

    From an earlier post:

    I would say that traditional and neo conservatives favour pragmatism, and neo liberals favour principle overall.

    Traditional and neo conservatives belief that human nature is intellectually imperfect, and so mistrusts any new human theories and ideas and favours tradition. Liberal ideas created as a result of the Enlightenment, such as equality and the rejection of the divine right of kings, for example, are rejected by conservatives. They also believe that pragmatism ensures that the natural social order of the world is not disrupted, which is a key thing for psychologically imperfect humans. This is shown by One Nationism, for example. However, it is worth mentioning that there are some*principled beliefs in conservatism - the practice of One Nationism is used in order to preserve the principles of hierarchy, natural government and the social obligations of the well off.

    Neo liberals disagree with the conservatives mentioned above and believe that humans are rational beings whose ideas should be followed. The best example of this is during the Thatcher era, where a limited state, strong emphasis on a traditional family and the idea of a authoritarian state were key ideas within neo liberalism and were not changed even when society demanded them to (there was social unrest due to these policies around the UK). However, it could be said that pragmatism does have an influence on Neo liberalism due to its creation as a result of pragmatic factors (the failure of the post-war social democratic consensus).

    Pragmatic = flexible; Principled = strict

    It's basically Traditional conservatives vs. The New Right

    TCs view themselves as pragmatic (they say conservatism is a disposition, not an ideology)

    TC are flexible on economics, role of the state, society, etc... They will make changes to ensure social stability + to maintain traditional society + hierarchy e.g any economic system as long as it gives hierarchy and private property, welfare state to prevent social unrest = they are very FLEXIBLE / PRAGMATIC

    NL and NC new right are strict: NL want unregulated free market capitalism; NC want a moral capitalism with restrictions on immoral goods, NL put the market above society and above traditions, NC think we should go back to older moral traditions (e.g. Ban abortion), NL want a night watchman state that doesn't intervene in the economy, NC want a state that delivers moral guidance, they both strongly oppose the welfare state = they are very DOGMATIC / PRINCIPLED

    HOWEVER, NCs are principled in the sense that the principles of hierarchy and private property, etc are fundamental to their ideas
