Default Re: Why is conservatives different?

There's kind of a chicken-egg problem with a lot of these studies. People who are attracted to fear-mongering, soundbite-friendly rhetoric will of course gravitate to whatever party or organization is currently using them most effectively. Whether conservative or liberal ideas have more merit is less an issue than how both of them are packaged and served to the public. Currently that arena is dominated by conservatives, but it is not hard to imagine a world in which it is the other way around. So, as an addition to serious discussion of competing political ideologies, this topic tends to fail.

As a tool for trolling the likes of AML, though, I heartily approve.
