Very well-explained.

This is one thing I never understood (about both parties). I have heard frequently that the left wants the government to interfere with social lives, and that the right does not.

But if we look at social policies of the left and right, it's the right that's putting all the restrictions in place concerning what people can and cannot do in their private lives.

On the other hand, it IS the left who support things like universal health care, social security, etc, which I suppose is what it's referring to.

Nonetheless, it's always confused me why the left support freedom of choice in social politics (gay marriage, abortion, and censorship) when the right often support the monitoring (or interfering) for the sake of preservation of life (as they see it).

Makes you wonder - does preservationist/utopian ideals conflict with the left/right policies of interfering (or not interfering) with a person's life?

I've always wondered that myself too and found it rather amusing/ironic. I think where this graphic really gets it right is the comparisons in the Family section. That is almost scarily dead-on.

Indeed - it may also explain why colleges and universities have a liberal bias, if teaching is considered a liberal value for a self-fulfilled adult. However, I don't think that raising a self-fulfilled child is mutually exclusive with raising an independent child. In the classroom, for example, we build community based on empathy and moral responsibility, but we also have a reward/punishment system and a method of feedback known as being a "warm demander," wherein we tell the kid, "You know I love you, but this work you did is bullshit and we both know it, so do it again."

Aaaaand there's the teacher in me coming out again. However, I also don't think that conservatives can't be interested in humanitarian careers, or careers the benefit society. I also don't believe that liberals wouldn't want to be cops or judges, as that also has a societal benefit to it. But I suppose this is a generalization.

I talk too much.

^ No, you don't talk too much. Your comments are always interesting to read & think about. I think some of the stuff in the photo is meant to be a generalization or stereotype at worst. But I really think it's accurate and it shows sympathetic sides to both parties.

When I said the family section was spot-on though, I was mainly referring to my several years of experience in daycare. Watching parents raise their kids poorly and not being able to say a word...and teaching them one thing at school and having them go home and not listen to their parents and come back to school the next day with whatever they learned previously erased. It's very frustrating (or was...I'm no longer in that business). There's also a place called Educare, that is essentially the biggest load of crap EVER.

This is spot-on and refreshingly neutral. I enjoyed it; thank you for posting.

Really interesting, Enjoyed reading it.

One thing to say about it though: Even though my family are massive liberals, we have, according to this picture, a more "right" family. I mean, I think that our family life fits in more with the supposed "conservative" side, even though our opinions and our values aren't conservative in the slightest. Strange the way things go, isn't it?

The reason it seems like it's the political right putting restrictions on people is because it is the right doing it. And to be honest... both of the main political parties in America are to the right of the center politically-speaking.... Bernie Sanders is the only sign of a party which is genuinely on the democratic / left side of the spectrum. The problem is that in America, people have been dumbed down in a way... so that they can't even know the difference between Social Democracy (Democratic Socialism) in its true form, and Communism. If anyone should even mention about universal healthcare being a right of every human being, you get these misguided and misinformed "nazi-fied" people who start screaming "Communism!" ... But in reality, you see the political right which restricts people's freedoms more and more, while saying they are 100% for freedom and small government. Yeah a small goverment, but a HUGE MILITARY and HUGE Corporations in cahoots with each other... WTF kind of logic is that!??? So the reason we see them restricting personal freedoms more is because of their nationalist tendency and hypocritical nature. The excuse that personal freedoms must be sacrificed for things like "national security". There's that word again "national" (nationalist). Sick sick ideology which often hides its fascist components OR eventually can regress into blatant and open fascism.
