Well, That Pretty Much Nails It

A study measures liberal and conservative attitudes on key issues.

It actually is, um, accurate, if rather obvious.

And the researcher, get this, does not try to just interpret the results to claim (baby-voice) "We'we bettew."

Extreme liberals, Dr. Haidt argues, attach almost no importance to the moral systems that protect the group. Because conservatives do give some weight to individual protections, they often have a better understanding of liberal views than liberals do of conservative attitudes, in his view.

Dr. Haidt, who describes himself as a moderate liberal, says that societies need people with both types of personality. A liberal morality will encourage much greater creativity but will weaken social structure and deplete social capital, he said. I am really glad we have New York and San Francisco most of our creativity comes out of cities like these. But a nation that was just New York and San Francisco could not survive very long

Nuance, for once, really, coming from a self-identifying nuance-loving liberal.
