#203A HIERARCHICAL RIGIDITY

This title names the conservatism thatís part of my worldview: itís associated with a social dominance orientation in which a social hierarchy is maintained via discrimination-based legitimizing tools (paternalism, meritocracy, race-based, wealth-based, etc.) Believing itís consistent with a natural order and fosters social stability, I accept the inequality inherent in such social ladder societyóand its often centralized organizational /power structure based on adhering to rules, conforming in a cultural / moral senseó and value property rights and the status quo.

OR

#203B  EGALITARIAN PROGRESSIVE
This title names the social justice path valuing equality my worldview is built on.  I believe all humans should have the same rights, opportunity /privileges. Where their goals are consistent with this belief, I support collective struggles against centralized power that seek to reform church, state, political, and economic institutions. I generally donít like discrimination/ exclusion. I support 1) social movements that are hierarchy attenuating (not enhancing) Ė feminism and affirmative action are examples, and  2) empowering the powerless.

Note: With version 4.0, these themes are new to the Project Worldview theme structure in March, 2019.
