    conservatives -- i.e. opposed to change -- because they lack a sense of time as a continuum of past, present and future.  They do not conceptualize a sequence and, therefor, have no idea what the future means or, by extension, the relationship between cause and effect.
    In other words, they exist in an ineffable present and that's a very scary place to be in.  Not only do you not know what happens next, you don't even understand what people are talking about when they refer to the future.
    To get an idea of what I'm referring to, compare your junk drawer with an orderly file cabinet in which everything is stored alphabetically and sequentially.  The conservative brain is a junk drawer.  They reach in to get stuff.  Whether what they find is what they can use is a crap shoot.
