Is Conservatism Genetic? Many years ago when this was all in a print newsletter called The Journal of Hard Response, I put my tongue in cheek and wrote a piece linked above. The other day I happened upon several articles that cited studies which gave that old article some degree of gravitas. Of the many such articles and studies I found, I leave you with these two.
Genetic Ideology The genetic disposition of political ideology.
Genetic Faith And secondly, the hereditary basis of religious faith.
What news! When it is said that conservative ideology is inherently selfish, callous, bigoted and intolerant of the other, it has now come to be literally true. With that said, as you follow the escapades of my friend Bubba, please do your best to give him a break, for Bubba just can’t help being Bubba. Immutable cause.
