Education and academia lean to the left because these institutions promote critical-thinking and factual information, which naturally leads to a leftist political stance.

I try to not to dislike them anymore cause I came to realise most aren't racist or stupid, some are no doubt. However if half the population feels one way and sadly my family is left, they essentially call them stupid or racist. You can't just dismiss half the population, what you don't understand that person, so they must be crazy? It is arrogant.

I'll probably always be socially liberal but I have come to respect some conservatives. What is the point of all the tribalism? It doesn't look like it is gonna help our countries get better. It is just this weird stale mate, two trenches and the rest of us in no mans land wondering what the fuck is going on.
