Political Genes

A small number of genes turn out to be correlated with which side of the liberal - conservative divide one winds up on. A couple of them turn out to be related to neurotransmitter details. Liberals, it seems, tend to be more sensation seeking and less sensitive to risk. Conservatives tend to be opposite.

I haven't taken the genetic test, but on those grounds I should probably be a conservative.
