Another aspect of the traditional Marxist position on ideology is that it relies on a distinctionbetween reality and perceived reality. This implies that ideology distorts or disguises the realworld (material reality) and that therefore there must be a real world to distort or disguise.We have described the dominant ideology thesis as a ‘traditional’ Marxist approach, butsome Marxists have taken a rather different line on ideology. For example, Gramsci’sconcept of hegemony offers a more sophisticated view of ideological contests in which‘ruling ideas’ are continually struggling with the competing world views of other interestgroups in society. In order to perpetuate the capitalist system, ruling class ideology cannotbe inflexible. Gramsci’s version is much more likely to focus on the ‘ideological struggles’involved in hegemony, rather than seeing ideology as a giant monolith that simply crushesall opposition.

This?

Yeah: "we seek to demonstrate that positive psychology, as it is currently being carried out, risks becoming a form of disguised ideology that perpetuates the socio-political status quo and fails to do justice to moral visions outside the dominant outlook"

EDIT: sorry, the last part I just replaced with this was wrong; the disguised ideology is the ruling ideology that perpetrates our minds and influences our thinking without us realising. Like engrained racism, for example; the ideology of white supremacy is now 'disguised' in our minds, and that's A Bad Thing.

It's a belief that someone or something is either wearing camouflage or really good at hide and seek.
