Hi Craig Weinberg Lakoff is correct about conservatism and the father. It is not a pathology, however, to respect your parents, and respect is a mixture of love and fear. That's one of the ten commandments.
And if people feared God more, incidents like the mass murders in CT would be much fewer. God should be returned to the classroom. It doesn't have to be the Christian God. The Women's Movement has unfortunately killed the father in their understable desire for wage equality etc. I challenge you to find one ad on TV or radio that does not feature a man as other than a fool. And the death of the father has turned progressives into anarchists. The death of the father is the deathy of morality. It's the main problem with society today.

Because conservatives generally speak from the perspective of the dominant culture. Hi Craig, Are there some other characteristics of conservatives that identifies them? Does the particular nature of the culture matter for you? Lakoff seems to be on to something when he says that conservatives represent the view of the strict father oriented family. Which gibes with the whole 'pathology rooted in fear and aggression' diagnosis in that study I quoted. The perspective is always - 'people who aren't like me have it easy' or 'inequality isn't important'. It's never 'yes, of course as a white male in the US, I am among the most privileged people who has ever lived, and I recognize the problems that might pose to others outside of my group and how important it is to address those problems and participate with those others as equals to the extent that I can.' OK, being born into a class automatically places a burden on one's life or otherwise coerces a person to act in a certain way? Really? Is this an absolute fact? Care for a minority report on that? It's not about how a person acts, it's about where the person is allowed to act. What country clubs they have access to. How long they have to tour Europe after college before they get come home and apply for six figure jobs. Craig -- Onward!
