The Difference Between Liberals and Conservatives

I highly recommend this video. At the first, it might sound "pro-liberal", though I suspect it's the speaker knowing he's speaking primarily to a liberal audience and he wants to hook them (a common technique in public speaking). In reality, the talk compares conservative and liberal values and explores their foundation and how both can contribute to the debate. If you would like to know more and help expand this knowledge, you can help with some of their surveys at yourmorals.org.

The speaker, Professor Jonathan Haidt, studies the psychological basis of morality in different cultures. It's a brilliant talk and I highly recommend you share it.
