7 There is a certain tension in Piketty’s book. On the one hand he, at the very beginning, explicitly defines ideology as a kind of system of ideas (“I use ‘ideology’ in a positive and constructive sense to refer to a set of plausible ideas and discourses describing how society should be structured.” ). On the other hand he is rather hesitant in using works written by intellectual historians which then leads to the problematic consequence that in the course of his narrative the term “ideology” increasingly loses a clear-cut meaning and even becomes identified with very different institutions that have been built around or where only accidentally situated next to the concept of “ownership”.

9 As Piketty explains, the clergy in European history, in contrast to the ‘functionaries’ in other religions, for example those in India or China, was not a class (an estate) that could perpetuate itself through inheritance rules—due to celibacy. As a consequence, the clergy had to be structured by formal legal regulations and privileges. In this way the church became an “ownership organization” and thereby enormously rich .
12 A kind of exception in this trend, however, is the voting behavior of, for example, Muslim migrants in France who continue to vote undaunted and by a large majority for left-wing parties because they rightly assume that they have little to expect from politically conservative politicians .
