  •  Haidt's work on morality (3+ / 0-)

    Andrew and I must have seen the same diary. ..

    Haidt identifies several components to morality.  If you look at the charts, it shows substantial difference between liberals and conservatives on what they view as most important.  Liberals typically value care and fairness highest, while conservatives value authority and purity; with purity being the psychology of disgust and contamination.  That might be part of what is captured in transmisia.

    We need to name things in order to talk about them.  The closer we can get to having the right words, the better we can communicate and gain understanding.  Very well done, Mercury.

    I always prefer to believe the best of everybody, it saves so much trouble.
