Hi- I agree with Crystal and Patti that the conservative voters I know saw the choice this election differently than liberals, and I also think that engaging in discussion with them about why they made their choice is going to be more productive than projecting my (or anyone else's) values and judgment on them. In thinking about diversity of thought, belief, and morality, I found this TED talk piece about moral views of conservatives and liberals to be useful background: https://www.ted.com/talks/jonathan_haidt_on_the_moral_mind/transcript?language=en I sometimes wonder if we struggle in cohousing with the in-group and authority and purity dimensions of group dynamics because liberals have trouble understanding that for half the population these are highly valued additional dimensions of morality, in tension or balance with openness and limitation of harm? (Maybe if we had more conservative values, we could keep the kids room and the share closet clean?) My two cents. YMMV.
