Liberal/Conservative - Born, not made?
Just read this article from last Sunday's Star. It confirms one of those "I'd always thought so, but had no proof" theories that I've had ever since I was old enough to vote.
The article reveals details of a study by UC Berkley social scientist Jack Block in which he "reasons that insecure kids look for the reassurance provided by tradition and authority, and find it in conservative politics. The more confident kids are eager to explore alternatives to the way things are, and find liberal politics more congenial."
Wish this telling info had been released prior to the last election.
