How Conservative Are You?

 

 

Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. today we will be discussing an important topic How conservative are you? See before you get offended I would like to point out that I am not bashing conservatives. It is fine if you are a conservative. No problems with that. We would just be discussing the topic then you are better off to what you were doing prior to reading this article. You might have noticed that most of the conservatives are very nice people.

The only problem with them is that they don’t want to see other perspectives of a particular thing. Some of them are so much tied to their ideology that they just don’t want to listen to the other side. Here lies the problem in my opinion because of the simple reason that if we don’t have the patience to even listen to the other side then we might not learn new things and grow in life. I would like to point out that it is not only the problems of conservatives but also the problem of some of the liberals.

We could generalize it more saying that it is a common problem of humans. it also arises from the fact that we like to form groups or we like the idea of belonging to a particular group. Now what happens is that the other group automatically becomes less attractive to us. Slowly we might start hating them and this leads to majority of the chaos in the world. If we don’t take care of these trivial things then we might not grow as a species. It is only when we realize and address our faults then only we could grow as humans.

I hope you liked my short article. If you have any insights into the topic then feel free to share it down in the comments section below. Play the quiz as well and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. I hope to see you in my next article.

“Extremes to the right and to the left of any political dispute are always wrong.”
― Dwight D. Eisenhower

“The “omnivore’s dilemma” (a term coined by Paul Rozin) is that omnivores must seek out and explore new potential foods while remaining wary of them until they are proven safe. Omnivores therefore go through life with two competing motives: neophilia (an attraction to new things) and neophobia (a fear of new things). People vary in terms of which motive is stronger, and this variation will come back to help us in later chapters: Liberals score higher on measures of neophilia (also known as “openness to experience”), not just for new foods but also for new people, music, and ideas. Conservatives are higher on neophobia; they prefer to stick with what’s tried and true, and they care a lot more about guarding borders, boundaries, and traditions.”
― Jonathan Haidt, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

“Let the liberal turn to the course of action, the course of all radicals, and the amused look vanishes from the face of society as it snarls, “That’s radical!” Society has good reason to fear the radical. Every shaking advance of mankind toward equality and justice has come from the radical. He hits, he hurts, he is dangerous. Conservative interests know that while liberals are most adept at breaking their own necks with their tongues, radicals are most adept at breaking the necks of conservatives.”
― Saul Alinsky, Reveille for Radicals

“A Radical is a man with both feet firmly planted–in the air. A Conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned to walk forward. A Reactionary is a somnambulist walking backwards. A Liberal is a man who uses his legs and his hands at the behest–at the command–of his head.”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt
