On the Differences Between “Liberals” and “Conservatives.” Again.
A reader sent me an email on this LATimes piece (use BugMeNot to bypass the registration requirement). It seems that some New York University and UCLA researchers devised an experiment to test to see if liberals and conservatives used their brains differently. You read the piece and consider it for yourself. I’ve already been there and done that.
Back when I was writing for Themestream.com (long defunct) I “fisked” a piece written by another contributor (long before “fisk” was even a verb!) That contributor was Marriah Star, though when I first posted a copy of my piece on this blog I made him just an anonymous self-confessed liberal.
If you’re interested in what I wrote back then, it’s still available: Liberal v. Conservative: Both are Necessary
