4. IMHO, perhaps THE most fundamental difference between us Liberals and the Cons ...

Is that for us, this:

"if they believe that they share an identity a common group membership with them"

Is a condition which we pretty much instinctively assess as 'true' for the population of most living creatures on earth, esp. humans and other mammals.

Whereas for the Cons, there is an instinctive calculation along the lines of 'is this being like, or of, myself' when assessing their needs, and deciding whether they should address them.
