That all ideology is ultimately a poison that will eventually become morphed into something other than it's original intent and weaponized either against outside forces or possibly also directed inward.

The weaponization of ideology part was very well put

I think the best example of this is the way that capitalists adopt leftist language, imagery, and labels in a clever way to curb resistance (ex. the label "socialism" being adopted by liberals and its subsequent reduction to what amounts to "friendly" capitalism).

I also liked how you stated ideology can be weaponized inward, I've got a rant ready if anyone wants to bear it.
