    Ideology and the brain

    Nature vs Nurture debate.

    Is your ideology something inborn or learned? In your opinion of course.

    Learned. No one is instinctively republican or democrat or libertarian.

    I can't think of any biological factors that would lead to favoring one ideology over another. Well, maybe that it's smarter to be a liberal, but I doubt even that really is a factor.

    Everything we say or do is conditioned behavior, and has nothing to do with idealogy or genes. Genes, another unproven theory from a long list of other unproven theories

    Wait, you are saying that DNA is an unproven theory or are you saying that genetic involvement in behavior is an unproven theory.

    Let's just say that I'm skeptical about things I can't prove to myself. Science is only half right in most of their theories. They get an A on effects, but a D on provable causes.

    I picked 50%, for the time being.

    At least half of your political philosophy is learned, however, your brain function can lend a hand in influencing whether or not you actually belief said philosophy.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
