Just playing around with the idea of the ideologies in Brave new World and the names given to them. I know they come from the last three social policy trees in vanilla/G+K but, still, while they were fitting as social policy options, I have to nitpick some about the use of the same names as ideologies. Why? Because - as it was explained in some interview, Ideologies in BNW have not yet the negative/positive connotations we assign them in the modern world. Civ V Brave New World should be - as it was pointed out in some other thread the initial s.XX was - in a "blank" state about ideologies: in each game, we don't know how it work out and which ideology will be the "best". Therefore, names such as "Autocracy", which have quite negative connotations nowadays seem a bit off... and -maybe that's just me- the relationship Order-Communism seems also a bit weak. ¿Why is it more orderly than autocracy, i.e.? Playing around these ideas, I felt that the French Revolution motto "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité" fitted quite nicely the three ideology paths you might chose. There is three different focuses in here, and we have three ideologies. All words are considered equal in the motto - so that is a clear start ... and one could say the French Revolution and enlightment is also a good starting point to start considering the "birth" of political ideologies. It seemed fitting to me. Then, we would have "Liberté", Liberty, that would be the Freedom ideology - focused in that each individual should be able to take its own decisions and not be subject to any master. I'd chose "Egalité" to represent the "communist" branch, renaming order to Equality - focusing the ideology in the fact the state suprresses the differences between citizens by ruling out private propierty to grant the same opportunities to each ones. Lastly, "Fraternité", Fraternity, might be used for Autocracy, if we underestand it not as "fraternity of all peoples", but more as "kinship" or Brotherhood inside the same civilization. - the ideology will therefore focus in defending the civilization co-citizens, by being prepared to fight "aliens" (not X-COM ones, just other civs with other, different and not familiar, "brother" cultures) and reinforcing the own kin. So, what would you thing of Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood as ideologies? Would this work (even if it will not be implemented)? or is just a silly idea?
