- Personality and Political Affiliation

I'm about 30 hours total into Jordan Peterson's impressively prolific youtube contributions. And though I find his connections deeply logical and reasonable, as well as his conclusions for reconciling psychology, philosophy, evolutionary biology, and religion, the thing I'm most impressed with for explicit revelation is his area of direct expertise.

For instance, one thing I've always known but have never heard verbalized so clearly, is that the two big personality categorical differences between liberals and conservatives are in the areas of orderliness, and conscientiousness. Conservatives tend to be orderly, liberals not so much. Conservatives tend to be conscientious, liberals, REALLY not so much. This is useful in understanding relative success since the combination of IQ and conscientiousness are the greatest predictors of lifetime success, and it explains why the boss is always conservative.

Well with that thought in mind I'd like to suggest some changes to our political processes that I think will help things along, particularly for centrist Democrats, the first of which I ripped off directly from Dr. Peterson.

1. All conservative college campus speakers should be scheduled to speak before 11:00 AM. The protesters won't be able to get up in time, and the event will come off without a hitch. A corollary to this is to hold all non elective courses between the hours of 4:00 AM and 10:00, no other times. The earliest hours should be reserved for Women's and Ethnic studies, and the most corrupted of the Social Sciences Education, and Humanities, or those course from other topics which are applying a social justice perspective.

2. For the purpose of easing traffic congestion, all voting from national to local, should be held between 4:00AM and 12:00AM, no exceptions.

3. Any member of congress who misses three consecutive votes without medical emergency, is subject to an immediate special election.

4. All federal employee work hours which don't concern direct interaction with the public, are now shifted from 9:00AM to 5:00PM, to 4:00 to 12:00 noon. Three consecutive late arrivals are grounds for immediate dismissal without appeal.

5. Members of congress can meet with registered professional lobbyists, only between the hours of 4:00 AM and 6:00AM. Any deviation will result in loss of registration. Lobbying without registration is now a Felony which involves a $500,000 fine and 3 years in jail, per offense.

Since none of these issues involves any mention of Race, Sex, gender fluidity or any other bias, they all seem perfectly fair to me. And since we know there are no biological differences between anyone, I don't see any reason for complaint - even from the SJW's who complain about everything. One rule, to rule them all. (grin)

8am or 9am starts would be enough. Even 10am would probably do the trick. I have been a university professor, for what that's worth. for the last 18 years.

Actually I was trying to purge both student and faculty. Indoctrinating can be tough at 4:00 AM.
