Will Wilkinson, siempre presto a asociar el liberalismo con la izquierda y encontrar vínculos entre ambos, destaca los resultados de un estudio sobre los valores de los distintos grupos ideológicos (podéis pedir una copia aquí, #64):
A further novel finding of the present study was that libertarians had the lowest sacredness scores on all five foundations. This finding supports Tetlock’s predictions [see here] that free-market libertarians would be the least outraged and most open to contractualizing moral violations. The differences were particularly stark between libertarians and conservatives on the three binding foundations. Libertarians may support the Republican Party for economic reasons, but in their moral foundations profile we found they more closely resemble liberals than conservatives.
