NYTimes has an article about a new “outgroup” that’s discriminated against: conservatives in psychology. An informal survey of psychologists at a convention showed that about 80% of them identified as liberal. A tiny minority of 3 out of 1000 identified as conservative. Dr. Haigt, who brought up the underrepresentation, said that this should change, and conservatives should be encouraged to become psychs even if the end result is that some of their research turns out to negatively impact the liberal agenda.
I think this is a pretty good idea. Obviously there’s still really idiotic politically incorrect speech, no disputing that (and I’ve stopped listening in on him during my lunch break). But that kind of racism has really diminished in general since the start of the Civil Rights era. The pendulum has really swung a bit too far to the left.
