Stuff White People Like

Via Steve Sailer, from Medical Press:
Liberals tend to underestimate the amount of actual agreement among those who share their ideology, while conservatives tend to overestimate intra-group agreement, according to new research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.
Christian Lander nailed that several years ago. "The definitive guide to the unique taste of millions":

The only problem is that "liberals" isn't just white liberals, right? Does this then undercut the hypothesis that the coalition of the diverse will eventually fracture due to, er, divergent interests?

Jokah,

The greater the proportional representation, the more likely fracturing will occur.

Steve's noted on several occasions how it's strangely humorous to observe the left act as though they haven't been in control of everything for the last 50+ years, but doing so serves a very useful function in holding that coalition of the diverse together a la Goldenstein and the Two Minutes Hate.

The left will never be defeated politically. The power of the left comes from nominally non-religious people whose religion is their leftist politics, which they practice with fervor.

The right can never be this politically powerful, because they have actual religions as opposed to politics.

The left wreaks itself by ramming itself and society destructively into reality. The right in its better moments acts as an honest critic, but when the left succeeds in silencing its critics, only bitter reality remains as a teacher.

The future of conservatism is bright, but it will not be due to present conservatives winning the argument. It will be due to liberals who make their own lives miserable for however long it takes until they rediscover the wheel so to speak.

For example, the rape crisis across college campuses and in the military is liberals marinating in a stew of their own creation. Solving it means doing something convervative, obviously. Right now the consensus seems to be for the authorities to protect the virtue of the womenfolk by taking shotgun blasts in the general direction of young men who don't know their place. This would be familiar to an old southerner.
