Tradition can have a forcing mechanism inherently in it, yes. It is inevitable if you want to keep the freshly obtained new value structure going.
For example, after abolishing slavery, what do you do with those who still want to keep slaves? You have to hurt them to abide by the new rules...
Hierarchy is more or less voluntary; you confused it with tyranny, which is built in a descending direction. Hierarchy creates itself in an ascending direction, where a set of people having the same value structure agree what/who has more of those values, thus should have the capability to...
I wouldn't call these baseless assumptions; I was following enough scientific literature which supports this conclusion. Take for instance the bestseller
Sapiens: A Brief History of Mankind.
Don't want to convince you about this. I just want to provide some food for thought, maybe.
It is not a useless -let's call it- ideology. It is part of the defensive mechanism, which made us successful as a species. We are programmed to withhold every ounce of energy we have unless it is necessary.
A change in social structure, lifestyle, or even habits requires energy. Learning...
Neither conservative nor liberal is an ideology. Maybe, if you slap an "ism" to them.

A country of 300 million people cannot show up better candidates just senile old war veterans with one leg in the coffin?
2016 wasn't different either, with Trump the Clown and Hillary the Witch.

You get the same high as watching the Super Bowl, yes. Or any sports event for that matter.

Well it's not the same. I like to savor the rich expressions this game constantly rolls out. For that I need my own pace of playing.
Plus I am biased ideologically so I don't have my fun when Harry starts quipping in Communism.
But other than that, you are right it is basically a replay :)
Dark Souls. All of them. Love to see the findings, the intricate lore, would hate to play it.
AAA games for their story, their gameplay is already samey to me.
Disco Elysium for different builds than I did, cuz I don't have the stomach to replay it for the sake of Muscle Detective.
There is and can be a possibility to improve a flash in a bottle situation, but the way to do it is definitely not by listening to feedback.

Doom 2016 was successful because it was novel as you put it. Doom eternal could have...
Yahtzee was first implying the importance of impressions. The first impression to be precise.
