  •  What book? Was it "The Conservative Brain"? (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    The author looked at the cognitive psychology research into conservatives's weird tendency not just to ignore evidence but to actively change their minds in the wrong direction.

    To be scrupulously fair, the author had a chapter or two at the back about things liberals usually get wrong.

    One of them was nuclear power.

    The big difference the author found between liberals and conservatives is that liberals were willing and able to listen to evidence and update their beliefs.

    Freedom isn't free. Patriots pay taxes.
