"Art is a lie that tells the truth" -- Pablo Picasso
Sadly, I think you are right.
I tell ya, biological evidence is coming that contemporary political conservatism results from a pathologically-sensitive FEAR-response.[And you can BET there will be a genetic "cure" implemented for in utero-diagnosed homosexuality, before there's EVER treatment proposed for conservatism!]Oy vey: the inmates running the asylum...
Fear is a big part of it. But so is something else. Seems to me that for a surprising number of people, the statement undergirding their values is a simple one: "I don't want to pay for anything that benefits anybody other than me."
Well, there's simple irrationality: "I want to Get Everything, and Pay Nothing" [But mainly, the FEAR that "I Pay Everything, and Get Nothing---so that (unworthy, unAmerican...unwhite) YOU can Get Everything, while Paying Nothing!"]
