Next time you get a break, wrap your brain around Politics as Pathology.
Not an easy read, but worth your time. Some nuggets:
. . . the contrasting views of man’s essential nature as either innately fixed; self-focused; self-reliant and responsible for his actions and their consequences; or alternatively, as compliant with, and amenable to, improvement under the (assumed benevolent) direction of a “morally superior breed of leaders”.
Much of the contentiousness between the Conservative/Right and the Liberal/Left can be understood on the basis of our re-defined appellations of Conservatives as Logical-Rationalists (objectivists) vs. Liberals as (subjectivist) Emotional-Intuitives. The former assemble available information and reason sequentially to a conclusion based on the available facts. In political matters the latter respond more emotionally to issues and intuitively arc to a conclusion based on feelings. Whatever information seems to support those feelings is selected post hoc and all else rejected as unimportant, wrong or outright lies. Exasperation is often the only product when the two face-off in debate. No one gets their mind changed.
It has been the extreme Left that has been the socially disruptive, historically deadly, nihilistic and revolutionary political force throughout the twentieth century. It is the radical Left which insists on jettisoning a highly productive capitalist system and replacing it with a collectivism that has been an abysmal failure wherever it’s been tried.  It is therefore essential to question the motivations of those who press that agenda.
