MSNBC, CSPAN, TED, PBS - Moyers -How do Liberals & Conservatives View World - Haidt

Update 8/9/2015 - The John Haidt videos/comments are a must for reflection as the "Presidential Debates Primaries" go on and on.  His TED Talk ends on the"righteous mind" being "blind to the truth" - if we are aware can we overcome????

and also consider ...

Jonathan Haidt, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion
Sat. 3 pm; Sun. 10 pm ET

2012.02.21  ...I have been reflecting on these programs and especially a couple of charts depicting social traits of liberals vs conservatives.  Liberals were ranked very high on NOT liking to see harm done to others, animals, etc.  Conservative's traits were pretty much at the same level across the board (Fair and Balanced?).  Haidt makes the general point that we (whichever we are) need to understand these differences or we may slip into demonizing the other people/tribe and thus develop an "ends justify the means" treatment.

Trump Is Radicalizing the Democratic Party - PEW via TheAtlantic

... That’s not an oversimplification of the stance. In 2012, for example, my colleague Norm Ornstein and Tom Mann wrote a Washington Post column titled, “Let’s just say it: The Republicans are the problem.” The critique hinged on what they call asymmetric polarization—yes, politics is more polarized than any time in recent memory, but that is not (the argument goes) because both parties have become more extreme. Nor is it a factor of partisan sorting, the idea that while both parties used to have liberal and conservative wings, the Democrats are now a uniformly liberal party and the Republicans a uniformly conservative one. Rather, the Democratic Party moved slightly left, but the Republican Party has moved far right. 
But what if the asymmetric trend is no longer so asymmetric? Recent polling from Pew finds, as one might expect, that not only are parties becoming ideologically homogeneous, but so are people. ...
