I have written about the Democratic circular firing squads. The threads are a little dated, now, but I can give you the gist.
NYU psychologist @JonHaidt has a wonderful youtube lecture on the differences between conservatives and liberals.
2/3 The lecture is included in this thread👇 …
Conservatives and authoritarians have a tendency to fall in line. Authoritarians like strong leaders, uniformity, and sameness. Conservatives value loyalty.
On the other hand, liberals and . . .
3/3 . . . non-authoritarians, who value diversity and individuality, naturally tend too splinter.
This is one of many reasons those who Saunders & NGO call right wing authoritarians tend to have so much power beyond their numbers. See👇
Remember. . .
. . . liberals and non-authoritarians have an even bigger advantage: Numbers. There are far more of us. The other advantage now in the U.S. is that liberals and non-authoritarians have the demographics of the future: Democrats are younger. The Trump-Fox-GOP is shrinking.
