Ideologically speaking...

The most elementary definition of ideology is probably the well known phrase from Marx's 'Capital':
They do not know it, but they are doing it.
The fundamental level of ideology, however, is not of an illusion masking the real state of things, but that of an (unconscious) fantasy structuring our social reality itself.
- Slavoj Zizek, "Zizek"
