I’ve heard a similar sentiment from (I believe) Sam Stone, along the lines of “conservatives understand leftists, they just don’t agree with them, while leftists do not understand conservatives”.
Well, this leftist must confess that he sees truth in the above. I don’t understand conservatives. I don’t understand why they want to force births of unwanted children. I don’t understand why they want to use crime-prevention methods that don’t prevent crime. I don’t understand why they want to ban marriages between two consenting adults just because they’re from the same half of the population as regards to a certain chromosome. I honestly don’t, and if that makes me a narrowminded asshole, then so be it.
