My Morality

I'm reading a book called The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided By Politics And Religion. The author, an admitted liberal, set out to determine how people think about morality. He identified 5 different "moral foundations" and after much study posited that liberals base their morality on 2 of the foundations and conservatives base theirs on all 5 (this is partly why liberals and conservatives don't understand each other). I went to a web site he was involved with, yourmorals.org, and took one of the surveys to see which foundations I base my morals on, and I'm not at all surprised at the results. My results match up pretty well with those of other conservatives.

I think my 'harm' is too low … but … otherwise, yes, that's me. http://www.yourmorals.org/5f_new2_process.php
