      Agreed- the Republican party has moved much farther to the right over a couple of decades, and the former left has moved more toward the center. And conservatives worship a glorious past that never actually was, at least not as they imagine it.

      This thread has helped me work out my thoughts to some degree, as far as getting over the false liberal/conservative dichotomy - I can mostly see the value of both sides (as well as the problems of both) but it's not helping much as far as getting along better with my friend. I can forgive his conservatism, but now I see that's not really the issue I have with him. Alright, I'll stop using this thread to talk about my personal life now.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      Here's a very interesting web page examining traits like introversion/extroversion, shyness and dominance in regards to political affiliation: Neuropolitics.org

      The evidence isn't totally conclusive, and political neuroscience itself is still fairly new as far as I know, but findings so far seem very convincing, and corroborate suspicions I've had for many years just from observation and intuition. The findings show liberals lean much more toward introversion and shyness and conservatives toward dominance (but conservatives also excell at submissiveness - indicating that they simply are much more willing to play the social dominance game).

      My personal view is that extroversion is rampant at the extremes of both liberal and conservative, but that there's probaly a wider swath of introversion among liberals than conservatives.

      Here's a link to the archive on that site: http://neuropolitics.org/backissues.asp

      Haven't looked at any of the other pages yet, but some of the articles look extremely interesting. I think I'll start with the one on Morality and the Dopamine Reward System.

      The fact that this thread has 4 pages of responses to probably the most absentminded conjecture is enough of a reason to probably just switch to a different forum that isn't occupied by idiots.

      Sadly, idiots are everywhere.
