Given what we know about Authoritarian Conservatives, I would put less stock in their studies as suggesting they are victimized. The fact that they are authoritarians means they try to control information, isolate others from free exchange of information, and will manipulate facts, because they believe they are absolutely right. They are less likely to change opinions and abandon ideas when proven wrong.
I agree, social science is going to be a more attractive field to liberals, because it requires a questioning the established way of doing things, why society is organized the way it is, and what is a better way of socializing with each other. That is the opposite of a conservative philosophy of traditionalism and resisting change.
As far as Libertarians, they tend to be less authoritarian than social conservatives and value individual rights over religious beliefs. In college, I saw many *true Libertarians discussing philosophy with left leaning anarchists. They have overlapping values. Libertarians and mainstream Liberals are more likely going to get along versus social conservatives.
*I saw true Libertarians, because I think a lot of unhappy neoconservative, social conservative, and establishment republicans are calling themselves Libertarians now, because they are unhappy with the GOP.
that's what happens when you base your entire party on racial identity <shrug>...Democrats should start focusing on ideas and policy that's good for the country rather than whats good only for a few select favored groups...
... or they can continue to shed people from their ranks... it makes me no difference.
-Colorado passed it's socially liberal legalization of weed by a popular vote that was massively in favor of legalization.
-Most Millennials and even many middle aged Americans are in favor of Gay Marriage nationally as well as other such socially liberal policies such as weed legality.
If it was put to a popular vote nationally it's likely both weed legalization and Gay Marriage would be legalized, completely contradicting your claims that "There's a conspiratorial Liberal agenda against the masses wishes".
