To clarify my position at least...
I see politics as being the medium of interaction between people (or even
the higher animals).
Political ideologies are different because they are essentially a sibling of
religion in that they attempt to provide an all-encompassing worldview that
explains, predicts and controls (or tries to).
By this definition Extropy is a political ideology.
