    I think that it's very important for people to try and get into the head of conservatives.  One of the major differences with liberals is over the issue of hypocrisy.  Conservatives see it as simply a case of "the spirit is willing, yet the flesh is weak" and the "fallen nature" of human beings.  Liberals, on the other hand, see hypocrisy as an example of "cognitive dissonance" where if they are honest, people can grow in wisdom.  I've written two blog posts on this and since I think the point is so important, I'm sharing them here.
