Jonathan Haidt and the Moral Matrix
It has been a Ted Talks kind of weekend.
I particularly enjoyed this one by Jonathan Haidt, wherein he discusses the moral matrix and the real difference between conservatives and liberals. As anyone who knows me really well is aware, my scale of morality has no end caps and tends to look deceptively like globs of swirly many-toned gray paint. Obviously, this talk appeals to that intrinsic part of my nature in many ways, least of which is how my political pendulum swings depending on the topic and the weather.
