Why Liberal Hearts Bleed and Conservatives Don't - Psychology Today

Political liberals are “bleeding hearts” because they empathize so strongly with the sufferings of others. As Bill Clinton so succinctly phrased it, “I feel your pain.” When Republicans wanted to compete in the empathy department, they had to invent a new terminology to identify this strange bird. They called it a “compassionate conservative.”

Conservatives see the world as a more threatening place because their brains predispose them to being fearful (2). They are also predisposed by brain biology to hating complexity and compromise. That would help to explain why politics can be so polarized, particularly in a rather conservative era like the present.

Political liberals are “bleeding hearts” because they empathize so strongly with the sufferings of others.

Which is bad if they are being used for their empathy by those with nefarious intentions.

Let's continue into the article.

One might ask why conservatives have, or are perceived as having, too little empathy. Why do liberals have too much? A widely-credited explanation is in terms of competing world views.

The conservative world view

Confronted by a potentially hostile environment, the best course is to take precautions and to ensure your own well-being and that of your family.

This precautionary stance helps to explain many of the distinctive traits of conservative Americans as well as right-wing politicians the world over. These traits may reflect either a proactive element, such as fighting to be winners in a competitive world. Or they can be defensive, involving measures to neutralize specific threats.

They are pro-family because being surrounded by close relatives is the best defense against threats that surround them. Liberals are less interested in family ties.

They oppose unbridled welfare because this encourages dependence so that the failures of a society are parasites on the successes thereby inverting the proper incentive structure.

But those running the farcical American right are far from afraid. On the contrary, they simply provoke fear so that they can use it as a tool to control people.

Conservatives see the world as a more threatening place because their brains predispose them to being fearful (2). They are also predisposed by brain biology to hating complexity and compromise. That would help to explain why politics can be so polarized, particularly in a rather conservative era like the present.

It also explains many of the quirky differences between Democrats and Republicans. My favorite is the mind-blowing fact that four times as many Republicans as Democrats have mud rooms in their homes (3). Got to protect your home from that contaminating mud.

Bronto,

Literally all of these links are op eds written by Conservatives about the exact same study. There was no reason to post multiple articles about the same study other than to try to use quantity as a form of argument.

Listen carefully:-

The study referred to in these articles made no attempt to differentiate between religious donations and charity. When religious donations are taken out of the equation, the same study shows that liberals are by far the more generous group.
