In a letter to the editor today a conservative was railing against gun control using as an example Florida's gun law which he claims was trashed by the liberal media who predicted all sorts of dire consequences including a severe diminution of tourists. All of this never came to fruition and he uses that outcome to point out all the good things that can come from all citizens packing heat and the bad things when government tries to regulate this second amendment freedom.
Which got me to thinking: perhaps another discriminant between Lminds and Cminds is their problem solving approaches. The Lmind favors a top-down solution (imposed by the elected govt on all the citizens) while the Cmind chooses a bottom-up solution (let the market be guided by Smith's "invisible hand"). If this is so, then the Cmind has more faith in the inherent wisdom of individuals than the Lmind does which wants a self imposed parent figure to help us be and stay good.
What do you think?
With all possible courtesy and respect,
