Fear Leads to the Dark Side

Here it is, folks, something I've been saying and thinking for a loooong time: Fear leads to right-wing political beliefs.

According to research published in the journal Science, "people who are sensitive to fear or threat are likely to support a right-wing agenda."

Seriously, go read it here.

Then you might re-think all your preconceptions about liberals being weak-kneed bed-wetters and conservatives being tough macho-men.

I generally try to keep this attitude in the forefront: I will not be afraid or worried. I will and do embrace this moment with a sense of exhiliration. And why not? We are in the eye of the storm of history. Or not.
