Political ideology: “A political ideology is a coherent set of views on politics and the role of the government” (Cliff Notes).

Libertarianism is another example of a political ideology.

Libertarianism: “In the most general sense, libertarianism is a political philosophy that affirms the rights of individuals to liberty, to acquire, keep, and exchange their holdings, and considers the protection of individual rights the primary role for the state” (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
