Moral Politics

TomPaine.com has an interview with George Lakoff. If you read nothing else today, please read this. I think Lakoff’s view of how people use family metaphors as a basis for their political thinking is very important for understanding what is going on in the minds of conservatives and liberals. It boils down to “Strict Father” and “Nurturing Parent” viewpoints. (Which are you?)

Update – Here is part 2 of the interview.
