The news presents a troubling and depressing worldview. Reviewing the news, I have a question that’s simple to ask but difficult to answer: Do the issues we face affect the mortality of conservatives and progressives differently? Considering those issues involving life and death, I suspect conservatives might be winning.
It certainly feels like the progressives are winning the culture war. Politically, they have power whether or not they won legitimately. Progressives seem to outnumber conservatives in cultural influence. That implies that they will always be dominant in America.
However, the future could be different. Conservatives may have the ability to surpass the progressives in number and influence because of the very political and social issues the progressives created. Here are a few areas where the differences in progressive and conservative mortality may make a difference.
