project WORLDVIEW        META THEME         copyright 2020          Home


This title names the conservatism that’s part of my worldview: it’s 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 it’s consistent with a natural order and fosters social stability, I accept the inequality inherent in such social ladder societyand its often centralized organizational /power structure based on adhering to rules, conforming in a cultural / moral sense and value property rights and the status quo.
