A disturbing study


PJMediaMany left-leaning students at the University of Washington-Seattle harbor feelings that Republicans and conservatives are "evil," "inhuman," or "not even a person," according to a new study led by a team of UW psychology professors.

Fortunately, in the hours after the workshop, students’ feelings of Manichaeism decreased.

But when re-surveyed a month later, the students, especially liberals — who reported stronger feelings of manichaeism in the first place — basically went back to hating their political opponents.

"Liberal beliefs that conservatives are evil only temporarily improved," the study concluded.

Thinking of your political opponents as inhuman couldn't possibly lead to dangerous and horrific results.

Left unasked: how and why do university students learn to think this way?
