Ideology and the Void of Meaninglessness

Turning to ideology is one strategy that is commonly used to escape the void of meaninglessness.

However, if examined too closely, ideologies are themselves revealed to be empty; their flat answers fail to encapsulate the vastness, complexity, and diversity of reality.  Their preformed advice fails to speak to the living void of purpose in our actual lives, the pressing problem that we must face.

When we realize this, we find that the very ideologies that seemed to erase the void of meaninglessnesss have done nothing but temporarily cover it over.
