It Is S.A.D.: The Leftist Brain Exposed
Life is tough and it is a whole lot tougher if you are stupid.
John Wayne SOURCE OF THE DIFFERENCE Without ?thought?, we are but a prolific
species. What and who we are comes from the brain. Also, it should be clear, the
differences we discussed in Chapter 1, 2, and 3 are dramatic. The Leftist does not react
and think like a Conservative on a gazillion issues. Again the focus here is political.
Leftist and Conservatives may both like the same single malt scotch, but it is likely only
the Conservative enjoys a good cigar. Not that a Leftist might not like the cigar, but he
cannot be perceived as fouling the air with one. Sushi is good, bad air is not. The
differences can be identified in several areas of study, but here we are focused on the
different views on government. After all, that is the reason for the terms Leftists and
Conservative. The words divide politics into different approaches. The word Leftist
signifies a more polarized concept than the meaning of Conservative. By that I mean, a
Conservative is more flexible and moveable than is a Leftist.
Simply put, the Leftists have a group political approach and the Conservative has a solo
one. Most are born different thinkers in these aspects. Once in a while, social interactions
during life may affect the approach, but way down inside the difference is like the Grand
Canyon. Deep and wide.
The Leftist brain is wired differently than a Conservative one. Of course, you can reverse
this and it is still true. The Conservative brain is wired differently than a Leftist one. The
why and wherefore part, is the interesting study of this book.
You should not be surprised that the study of the brain is less well understood than the
workings of a computer. In a computer, we can create memory boards and figure out how
to make them small and compact and can even give them simple logic. We have not and
will not be able to give emotion, common sense, or intuitiveness, to a computer. If they
talk to us they, like a parrot, simply repeat what is programmed for repetition. In fact,
most studies of brain function… why it does what it does… are still in the dark ages. You
can spend a lifetime getting mired down in words and categories and studies of all types.
I have no doubt that many who fancies themselves wise persons of the mental world will
criticize this work as superficial and unfounded in science. To them I respond: ?Your
ignorance is astounding when you consider how little is yet known of what makes up the
brain functions.? Give lowly me a chance. I am a scientist without portfolio. So was
Einstein and Socrates. Hopefully, we stand on the same platform. Of course I am at the
Keep in mind I have lived a long life studying this phenomena, and more particularly I
have lived the last 20 years up and close to it as is humanly possible. I doubt anyone can
exceed my experience and my study.
Scientist‘s with normal Portfolio, know the brain lobes (Frontal, Parietal, Temporal,
Occipital, and Cerebellum) and the hemispheres of the brain. (The hemisphere concept
deals with the fact that the right side of the brain provides signals for the left side of the
