Are we born that way?

Discover The Anatomy Of Political Beliefs: Do You Really Have A Choice In Choosing A Side?

Above all else, we humans value our freedom.

Our history is branded with verbal and physical warfare for individual and socio-cultural rights.

We have fought for equality, liberty, freedom of thought, and a vast spectrum of other social, economic, civil, and political rights.

In Western culture, this pursuit of freedom culminated with the establishment of democracy, a form of government that treasures the right to choose more than any other.

Finally, there were sides to choose from, and we were free to identify with either one, based on our personal values and beliefs.

That’s what we told ourselves, anyway.

The notion that we freely and independently choose a political party might not be exactly true.

Recent studies in the field of political neuroscience shook the conservatives and liberals by suggesting their passionate political stances are not a product of their own free will, but biological predispositions.

In other words, you might not have a choice in identifying as a conservative or a liberal – your brain’s neural activity does it for you.

 But what about other influential factors, such as upbringing, society, and culture?

Is their impact in forming political beliefs not as strong as previously thought?

In Hidden in Plain Sight: The Conservative versus Liberal Conundrum, you will discover:

  • A fascinating insight into the histories of Conservatism and Liberalism – how they shaped Western societies and gave birth to crucial freedom movements
  • A comprehensive breakdown of what it means to be a Liberal or a Conservative in the 21st century, including their different ideological views and social policies
  • An examination of the question of morality: discover what it means to be politically moral, and which side you fit in based on your own moral code
  • A guide through each party’s ideological views on our society’s most dividing issues, such as LGBT rights, race, and religion
  • The crucial psychological and neurochemical differences detected in the brain and behavior of conservatives and liberals
  • Why conservatives are more likely to feel fear and be more resistant to change than liberals, and why liberals are usually less squeamish and considered more optimistic
  • If there is a gene for political belief, and how strong the role of social media and community is in shaping ideologies
  • The causes of modern political polarization, and solutions for bridging the gap between the two parties

And much more.

Never before was America as divided as it is now.

Understanding the differences between the two parties is not about deepening this gap, but rather the opposite.

It’s about accepting individuals’ views, and knowing how they came to be.

By understanding the opposite side, we can learn to tolerate it.

That way, we can step into the future united in our mutual respect for each other and our opposing views.
