Is what you mean, right?
Maybe this is why:
Studies Reveal that Conservatism is Promoted When People Rely on ‘Low-Effort’ Thinking
Good news for conservatives as a compilation of four recent social psychology studies demonstrate that rather than necessarily being pathological, political conservatism is promoted when people rely on low-effort thinking.
In the four studies conducted by Scott Eidelman, Christian S. Crandall, Jeffrey A. Goodman, and John C. Blanchar published by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, Inc, they concluded, “(P)olitical conservatism is promoted when people rely on low-effort thinking. When effortful, deliberate responding is disrupted or disengaged, thought processes become quick and efficient; these conditions promote conservative ideology… low-effort thought might promote political conservatism because its concepts are easier to process, and processing fluency increases attitude endorsement.”
It would be easy to be snarky about studies like this, but in truth these studies are a general step up regarding the possible psychological/cognitive reasons for conservative thought. Prevailing thought based on many previous studies was that there is a psychological pathology inherent conservative thinking. But in these studies we are offered a more practical way to approach the divide, if rather tedious. We might try starting off our next “discussion” with a conservative with something along the lines of “Yes, that makes sense initially but it doesn’t account for x, y and z.”
I know I'm joining this thread late, but - did you know that some Republicans, possibly as many as 70%, believe woman's bodies can reject the sperm of a rapist? They think the vagina has the ability to do this.
In particular, he wrote a judicial opinion in favor of "American Cyanamid" in a case where this company _required_ women candidates for a particular position to be sterilized simply so that the company could avoid the possibility of future legal actions as a result of birth defects caused by exposure to toxic chemicals. _THAT_ is despicable and callous by any reasonable interpretation and it is an example of why this man faced fierce oppostion to his nomination.
What could be worse than the two headed monster that we have running this system?
Both sides fight to get the most partisan and biased person through to the SCOTUS.
