Conservatives Understand Liberals, but Liberals Don't Understand Conservatives

Links presented without comment, and no comment is needed.

Both offer research and books on the thread title, and both go a long way to explain what goes on here in LTUP and elsewhere in society.

If I wanna determine who is the liberal in an argument, i usually look for the first occurrence of the words "so you think". that's usually my first indicator

Actually, it's quite obvious that liberals understand conservatives more than vice-versa:

Liberals think that conservatives (in general) are anti-abortion, anti-woman and anti-minority. All of which is true of most (not all) of them.

Conservatives think liberals are Communists, despite the fact most despise Communism.

Sure, these things are 'true' from a liberal's relativistic viewpoint, because for them social order and power flows from the State, not individuals. Thus if you do not support the State coercing individuals on what some want for woman, well obviously you are anti woman. The same for minorities.

It's curious to despise communism while making the social and economic arguments rooted in it.

What's curious is that some need to label people and name call names because they don't fit into a black and white political framework. Very curious...the us vs. them attitude here and in this country is a joke. The people that believe it are a joke and those that teach it are the true evil in this country. Turn off the Fox News and MSNbc people...

See case in point, thanks for proving my point, you can't even open your eyes to see that there is no way in Hell that Fox is fair and balanced. You can't even entertain the thought because of the blinders. Whew... Difference between John Steward and Fox is Steward admits he has a bias.

I must admit I have a hard time understanding how liberals think the way they do. But then again I tend to think logically and do not generally let emotion and 'feelings' play a role in my decision making process.

No, THERE'S your "case in point" following right after your declaration of "case in point".
