One Kind of Person

Psychologists, sociologists, philosophers, and other eggheaded academics tend to be overwhelmingly liberal, so its perhaps suspect that they’d try to pathologize – or at least reduce to psychological symptoms – a perfectly legitimate and widely shared political ideology.  What interests me more than any of these theories is the need to formulate such theories – to establish some basic, empirical distinction between these two groups, like the evolutionary split between the Eloi and the Morlocks, a difference not of opinion but of kind.  The truth is, there are not two kinds of people.  There’s only one: the kind that loves to divide up into gangs who hate each other’s guts.
