The Anthropology of Conservatism and Liberalism
« on: June 06, 2018, 06:50:55 AM »
Hello,

A very interesting article here about the different perceptions of morality between Liberals and Conservatives.
Liberals: "morality is about how we treat each other", equality, justice. Conservatives: "morality is about binding groups together, supporting essential institutions, and living in a sanctified and noble way."Obama has made much of statements like 'no red states or blue states' etc, but in terms of policies, he's a cookie cutter liberal. When he goes into conservative territory with noises about God, Family and Nation etc, it sounds contrived. And that's a big problem for him. For instance, studies have shown that people with families are more likely to be conservative - they want a stable and predictable future for their kids.
McCain has made similar noises to placate the other side, but has to work less hard because conservatism doesn't require explanation and persuasion - it just exists.In America, it often seems that there is no political thought, just regurgitation. Liberals sit on one end of the piano, and conservatives at the other. Instead of playing the full length of the keyboard, each one pounds their end of the keyboard, getting louder and louder to put across their point. Neither realizes that the other has a hearing problem which prevents them from hearing their notes, no matter how loud they play. Will this gap ever get closed? I hope so, because right now they're playing an unlistenable fucking racket.

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
