    Perhaps the question would be better framed in terms of 'ideologues'?
    You might be correct there.
    I would find it hard to judge the harm of ideologies in general. I would need to look at a specific ideology itself to make that judgement.

    I think it is implied that ideologies are harmful because ideologues make them that way. An ideology, on paper, harms no one. An ideology, not put into practice, harms no one. This is kind of like the silly gun argument. Guns don't kill people , people do. A gun, like an ideology, is an expeditor of harm.
