The Moral Roots of Liberals and Conservatives

“If our goal is to understand the world, to seek a deeper understanding of the world, our general lack of moral diversity here is going to make it harder. Because when people all share values, when people share morals, they become a team. And once you engage the psychology of teams, it shuts down open-minded thinking.

. . .

So once you see this, once you see that liberals and conservatives both have something to contribute, they form a balance on change vs. stability.”

Jonathan Haidt
