Nick Kristof wrote a really interesting opinion piece for the NYT two Wednesdays ago about how to best bridge the ideological gaps between conservatives and liberals. in it, he referenced some studies done that found that disgust is a key emotion that differentiates (generally) between liberal and conservative ideology.
i was going to expound on this idea and make some snarky comments about conservatives, but i started on this post two weeks ago and haven’t looked at it since then, so what i’m doing here is pretty much just posting the links. but the piece is really interesting. i’ll let you draw your own conclusions about conservatives. you probably know mine by now, anyway.
