    The Moral Roots of Liberals and Conservatives

    A very interesting presentation about moral psychology. While the context of this Ted Talk is American of course, the video is perfecly applicable to Europe as well.



    Basically, there are 5 foundations of morality:

    1) Harm/care
    2) Fairness/reciprocity
    3) Ingroup/loyalty
    4) Authority/respect
    5) Purity/sanctity

    Jonathan Haidt's findings show that left and right care equally about harm and fairness - the difference is that the morality of the right is more advanced and also cares about foundations 3, 4 and 5. It's issues related to these points which most political debates revolve around.
    “Tradition anchors our experience of time in memory and projects it into the future through hope.” – Rein Staal
