Demystify Your Experience

A link to the article: Unconscious Reactions Separate Liberals and Conservatives: Scientific American.

Notable quote – “The fact is we don’t live in a completely safe world. Things can and do go wrong. But if I can impose this order on it by my worldview, I can keep my anxiety to a manageable level.

I had been theorizing that conservatism is built around the fear-model of thinking and this gives evidence to that theory. I have found in my personal experience that people who are more conservative don’t have as free a sense of humor or willingness to laugh or express their emotions (other than anger) and are generally harsher types. I suppose these are all consequences of persistent fear and fear-based thinking.
