A More Balanced Approach

TheRighteousMindIt’s true that Progressives and Conservatives don’t think alike. As America descends deeper into polarization and paralysis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has done the seemingly impossible—challenged conventional wisdom about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to everyone on the political spectrum. Drawing on his twenty five years of research on moral psychology, he shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from gut feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different intuitions about right and wrong, and he shows why each side is actually right about many of its central concerns. In this subtle yet accessible book, Haidt gives you the key to understanding the miracle of human cooperation, as well as the curse of our eternal divisions and conflicts. If you’re ready to trade in anger for understanding, read The Righteous Mind.

My Last Day of Full-Time Work

Yesterday, I turned 65-1/2 years old. Today, I’m going in for my last day as a full-time employee. There’s a bunch of paperwork to be finished, so blogging will probably be light today.

Of course, now that I’m no longer working full-time, my income is reduced, so I’ll take this opportunity to rattle my Tip Jar. I’m thankful for the first month’s response from the Gentle Readers. After expenses, I actually came out a few bucks ahead. Thank you. BTW, there’s also an Amazon link on the Home page. If you buy via that link, you pay the same price, and I get a commission.
