The 'Science' Of Libertarian Morality
"Empathizers identify with another person’s emotions, whereas systemizers are driven to understand the underlying rules that govern behavior in nature and society. Libertarians, unlike both liberals and conservatives, scored very high on systemizing. The authors note, “We might say that liberals have the most ‘feminine’ cognitive style, and libertarians the most ‘masculine.’ ”
Interesting stuff. The full magilla can be found here. While I disagree that there's much of a science to any of this...we basically assume the morality of our forebears until modern media presentations attempt to either persuade us otherwise or reaffirm the position...to my mind its good to know that liberals are douchebag sissies who should all be wearing skirts.
