### Perhaps I should have left out the word "current" from my post. Indeed,
as you imply, ideological purity tended to become a touchstone of belonging
to elites throughout history and today's world is not much different from
empires past.

The one salient difference might be the homogenising influence of media,
both mass and social. Ideology spreads now more easily between countries,
increasing the risk of forming a world government at some point.
