An general observation I've previously mentioned: Conservatives tend only concern themselves with themselves. Liberals tend to be concerned with the welfare of others and cooperation.
Rural = your neighbor could be 8 or more miles away.
Suburban = your neighbor could be as close as 8" away.
Dare anyone in these days of "everyone is entitled to their opinion" ever assert that one opinion is actually better
As a consequence of my "Delusion" thread with its evidence of our preoccupation with all things delusional, I downloaded a Freebie, "Deadly Delusions" by Barry Mauer. Mr Mauer is a teacher at a Florida State University. His book is an unapologetic attack upon all things "right wing" and the associated mentality. Each year the intake for his class is 30 and he gave them all a questionaire.
One result, 14 agreed with the statement that, “There is no way to tell whether any theory is better than any other. Therefore, everyone has a right to his or her own opinion about anything.”
Mr Mauer comments:- "This misplaced fairmindedness – if indeed that is what it is – leads many students into the credulity trap where they are willing to entertain any claim no matter how ludicrous; they also equate hard-earned established knowledge with wishful thinking, conspiracy theory, and propaganda."
(67% agreed with the statement that “I know propaganda when I see it.”)
There were many other questions, the answers to which astounded Mr Mauer to the point where he thought that the students just might be being flippant. But this is Trumpster Country, so maybe not.
This seems to relate to "impartiality" which is the byword these days for the BBC. Last year there was a march in London asking for a second Referendum on Brexit. Estimates of attendance varied from 600,000 to over 1 million. On the day, a counter demonstration attended by about 2000 gained much the same time slot on the main news. Such is "impartiality". And on the Comments Sections on the Tabloids, we had the usual "A left wing orchestrated march, rent a crowd etc" thrown at the first mentioned march. I presume those who said this saw the counter demonstration as the spontaneous outpourings of the "moral majority" or the cry of the "everyday man"!
Anyway, it seems quite appropriate that Florida will be one of the places first hit by rising sea levels. As the Trumpsters there are flushed out to sea they will still, presumably, be heard crying out that the 97% of scientists who see Climate Change as a reality were all part of yet another left wing conspiracy designed to eradicate their way of life.
As I'm waffling, this again relates to the nature of Reality. Whether overseen by a transcendent Being who "loves Jacob but hates Esau", who has his "elect" and who will eventually despatch his own enemies to the lake of fire (having failed continually and dismally in getting his own "elect" to love there own).......or in fact a Reality that actually expresses a profound impartiality that can be trusted.
