    Really mixed feelings on this one, focus wise.

    On the one hand, that study with the data versus political beliefs is pretty cool and interesting.

    On the other hand, this post is culture war toxic waste and the comments are a horrifying mix of idiots.

    For a while there, my Facebook feed was awash with the emissions of people jizzing all over their keyboards at the prospect of punching Nazis.

    IMO, it would have been better if you’d tracked down the source of the study, and posted that instead without the Nazi punching Trump context, since the two really don’t have that much to do with each other and the context here is really crap for a good discussion.

      Good point. For others who want the paper rather than more polarising summary context, it’s here

        Seconded. Interesting and relevant study, mindkilling and low-value-added (at best) political take (despite the author).

        Edit: To be clear, I do want to see studies like this, just not filtered through this sort of toxic-politics filter.

        I changed the link to the interesting study, because the original post was not fit for Whistling Lobster.
