Guest Video: How Do Conservatives and Liberals See the World?




This was an incredible video from Bill Moyers Sunday show, Moyes & Company on Sunday, February 5, 2012..

It features social psychologist Jonathan Haidt who explains the psychological underpinnings of our contentious culture, why we can’t trust our own opinions, and how we demonize our adversaries.

“When it gets so that your opponents are not just people you disagree with, but… the mental state in which I am fighting for good, and you are fighting for evil, it’s very difficult to compromise,” Haidt tells Moyers. “Compromise becomes a dirty word.”
