More about the difference between liberals and conservatives.

The first half of this Hidden Brain podcast will appeal to anyone interested in the psychological and biological factors in our great national divide. The second half is interesting too:

“Many of us intuitively feel that the bitter partisanship of American politics is bad for our nation. So should we be concerned about the health of our democracy? This week on Hidden Brain, we revisit two of our favorite conversations about U.S. politics. We start by talking with political scientist John Hibbing about the psychological differences between liberals and conservatives. Then, we explore the role of conflict in democracy with historian David Moss.”

1. I heard that program and it was facinating!!!

Conservatives are like left handed people.. They are just built a bit different. Not bad just different.. It was amazing that they can use functional MRI with great accuracy to tell if a person is a liberal or conservative.. They then broke it down to about 20 questions and could get a good Idea about which side of the fence you were on.. Like I said, neat program..
Here is another one on the topic on NPR..
