Genetics. That’s my answer to a lot of things when people try to explain behavior. I was happy to see an article in today’s NYT by Benedict Carey (hey – nice first name!) that people’s parents and genetic inheritance play huge roles in determining current ideological views. Every time someone under the age of 30 tells me what their political view is, I ask if it differs or is similar to that of their parents. I respect those who go against the grain from their parents or siblings – it’s much harder….and apparently against one’s instinctual ideology.
