Image of Political prejudices

Liberals call conservatives names, claiming they are the bane of existence and the cause of all the problems in the world. Conservatives do the same to liberals. The hate spreads. The violence spreads. The rage grows.

Whites did it to blacks. Nazis did it to Jews. Non-Japanese Americans did it to Japanese Americans. How much of the destruction of society is caused because, on some days, one group wears the "blue collar" and other days they wear the "brown collar?" In response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., Jane Elliott devised the controversial and startling, "Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes" exercise. If children can succumb this quickly and easily to irrational discriminatory behavior, could it be that adults aren't any different? How do we determine between behavior rationally fitting of our scorn vs. irrational behavior that has little more basis than what political badge you wear? What are the similarities between liberals and conservatives? Are there fundamental differences between political parties and, if so, what are they?

About braincrave

relationships/dating/braincravebraincrave

We all admire beauty, but the mind ultimately must be stimulated for maximum arousal. Longevity in relationships cannot occur without a meeting of the minds. And that is what Braincrave is: a dating venue where minds meet. Learn about the thoughts of your potential match on deeper topics... topics that spawn your own insights around what you think, the choices you make, and the actions you take.

We are a community of men and women who seek beauty and stimulation through our minds. We find ideas, education, and self-improvement sexy. We think intelligence is hot. But Braincrave is more than brains and I.Q. alone. We are curious. We have common sense. We value and offer wisdom. We experiment. We have great imaginations. We devour literacy. We are intellectually honest. We support and encourage each other to be better.

You might be lonely but you aren't alone.

Sep, 2017 update: Although Braincrave resulted in two confirmed marriages, the venture didn't meet financial targets. Rather than updating our outdated code base, we've removed all previous dating profiles and retained the articles that continue to generate interest. Moving to valME.io's platform supports dating profiles (which you are welcome to post) but won't allow typical date-matching functionality (e.g., location proximity, attribute similarity).

The Braincrave.com discussion group on Second Life was a twice-daily intellectual group discussions typically held at 12:00 PM SLT (PST) and 7:00 PM SLT. The discussions took place in Second Life group chat but are no longer formally scheduled or managed. The daily articles were used to encourage the discussions.
