    I don't have time to research it, but I remember reading about a study that suggested that conservatives' tendency to adapt less well to change was at least to some extent, likely a genetic predisposition.

    I would not accept this as gospel even if I could quote the source, but I suspect that, like many of our behaviours, it is a mix of nature and nurture.

    I doubt that it is completely predetermined, however, that some people will be right wing fanatics.  I think that environment, conditionong (e.g. parents), life events, education, degree of affluence, and sometimes mental illness all play a role.
