    I read this a while back and thought that it was rather interesting and wanted to know what other people thought on the issue!

    I scored high on fairness and loyalty- but I got a zero on purity (I can't say that I care WHAT people do as long as they aren't hurting someone!)

    I scored higher on everything than both groups, except on Harm, I got significantly lower.

    I scored high on harm and fairness but I received lower than both groups in the other three options. Authority and purity? No thank you.

    I scored highest in fairness and harm and lowest in purity and authority and kind of in the middle for loyalty... for all of them, I was less moral than both liberals and conservatives.

    I scored highest on Fairness and Authority, but fairly low on everything else. Harm and Purity were both fairly low. Loyalty was about average. It sounds about like my alignment result, Lawful Neutral.

    I just now read the second link, did anyone else read it? To summarize, liberals generally are high in the Harm and Fairness, and low everywhere else, conservatives are a little lower than average on the first two, but generally higher on everything else. Basically, there are only two kinds of morals important to libs, and 5 to cons. Which is why they have such drastically different viewpoints. There are so many political issues that are black and white, now it kind of makes sense that some people can be so sure they are right when the other person is convinced they are right and believe the exact opposite. It was pretty eye-opening to me, I have a hard time dealing with people that don't think like I do. The conclusion of the paper is that libs (the audience of this paper is other lib college professors) need to learn to think like a con in order to beat them politically. I guess if a conservative wrote the paper he would come to the same conclusion.

    I have only an inkling if I answered part 1 correctly. Nonetheless, my scores were:

    Harm: Conservative < Me < Liberal
    Fairness: Me = Conservative < Liberal
    Loyalty: Me = Liberal < Conservative
    Authority: Liberal <= Me < Conservative
    Purity: Liberal < Conservative < Me

    So, I guess the only thing I maxed out on was Purity.

    umm.. NY Times is my home page and I'm certainly not a college professor- I'm about as working class as they come! NY Times editorial page is the liberal part- that's how papers get their liberal or conservative reputations! How do I know this? I read on average 5 papers a day with reputations spanning the whole political spectrum- the news is the same, the editorials just differ.
