Liberals, for example, construct moral arguments primarily on two principles, harm/care and fairness/reciprocity, failing to recognize additional principles, such as in-group loyalty, respect for authority, and purity concerns that drive conservative opposition.

I understand those concepts, I just think they're small-minded, selfish and toxic.

I was thinking that the writer lost a little cred by adding that politically hypocognitive blurt. Sort of an unintended "case-in-point" by the author. loyalty jack-booted lock stepping, respect for authority authoritarian oppression, and purity dog whistles that mean keep everything white, straight, and male, concerns that drive conservative opposition.

Good article otherwise.

Says the loyal subscriber who respects Steele and downmods trolls for the good of the community. :)

I think of it as caringly protecting fair people from harmful trolls, while reciprocating the effort steele has made.

That's what I just said: doing your sacred duty to destroy the infidel as commanded by the Great Prophet!
