The Difference Between Liberals and Conservatives

with one comment


It is probably owed to genetics.

This link explores the scientific reasons for liberal vs conservative thinking. For example, liberals are more concerned about their personal feelings and the feelings of others. (preservation of self)

The conservative strives to fight against changes that are viewed to be detrimental to social order and culture. (preservation of country)

The diagram above illustrates the differences from a governmental and political level. You can view the full sized diagram by David McCandless and information artist Stefanie Posavec here.
