Why does it seem like liberals and conservatives never seem to agree?  Is it simplistic to say that they just see the world differently?  Maybe not.  Check out this fascinating talk given at the 2008 TED conference by University of Virginia psychologist Jonathan Haidt, who studies the cultural context for morality and emotion.  In this talk, he discusses the five moral values that are valued most by people who fall into either the conservative or liberal camp.  Perhaps it will help you have more empathy for our countrymen and women in those other-colored states.
