Libertarian psychologist Jonathan Haidt explains how Occupy and MoveOn on the Left may demonize rich corporations & Citizens United, but the Tea Partiers uniformly demonize the new Poor as "The Bad Guys", ie Today's Middle Class, mostly White Conservatives don't want to help tomorrow's mostly non-Caucasian Poor. So which social movement is really worried about Generational Class Warfare? They answered that derisively at the start with a chart about recdent research showing Conservative brains are hard-wired w/ concern for "Family" groups while politically active Liberal brains are 'non-sensically' hard-wired w/ concern about "Non-Family/Other." So the Tea Party major reason for existence is halting all "entitlements" for tomorrows poor. In this case "Entitlements" clawed back apparently includes personal safety, college education, and a long lifespan. close
