POLITICS FOR DUMMIES? OK. EASY.
Politics for dummies? Ok. It’s this simple.
There are three ways to coerce people: force(law/military), payment(trade), and shaming(gossip/morals)
These correspond to conservative(saving), libertarian(trade), and progressive(shaming).
And these correspond to the reproductive roles of father(conservative), the brother(libertarian), and the mother and sister(progressive)
And that’s because it’s the reproductive strategy of the males, the young, and the females.
It’s very simple. We all just negotiate on behalf of our reproductive strategies. It’s that simple. All our talk is nonsense.
