  •  Shared Moral Values (17+ / 0-)

    Jonathan Haidt describes the moral values we all share:

    1. Harm/care, related to our long evolution as mammals with attachment systems and an ability to feel (and dislike) the pain of others. This foundation underlies virtues of kindness, gentleness, and nurturance.
    1. Fairness/reciprocity, related to the evolutionary process of reciprocal altruism. This foundation generates ideas of justice, rights, and autonomy.  We are likely to include several forms of fairness, and to emphasize proportionality, which is more strongly endorsed by conservatives.

    He also describes additional conservative moral values.

    1. Ingroup/loyalty,
    1. Authority/respect,
    1. Purity/sanctity

    Authority is the sieve that I use to separate conservative moral values from our two.  This is one way you will know if you are talking to Fred.  Fred doesn't back management.  The more authority the more Fred knows they are wrong.

    As we have long suspected here on dKos, the answer really does turn out to be "pie"
