tazzari saidNo surprise. Liberals tend to seethe world as a complex mix of diverse issues, possibilities, etc. This can be stressful. Conservatives tend to see a black-and-white universe and believe in the One True Answer - much easier, if somewhat less connected with reality.WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
LOL! Your own description of conservatives as tending to see a black-and-white universe undermines your entire premise. You are doing EXACTLY
what you're accusing conservatives of! You're painting a black and white universe to fit your mantra. That's hilarious example of hypocrisy!
No. Back on topic... The relationship between liberalism and mental health issues not new. If you search you'll probably find documents on this going back more than 18 years with the US military, specifically from the USMC and Navy when they began studies on suicides in the armed forces. There's a consistent pattern to them. Liberal individual meets reality and cannot reconcile his preexisting political beliefs with the reality with which he is confronted.
In other words, liberal enlisted and junior officers experience a conflict between their core beliefs in liberalism and reality. They cannot reconcile their beliefs in liberal dogma with reality. That is where a great deal of mental health problems like depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts originate. The conflict between "what I believe to be true" and "what I know and have seen to be true."
Contrary to liberal mantra and doctrine, reality is not a subjective or relative experience. Reality comes in one size onlyand if it doesn't fit you, that's your problem.
