Fundamentalist Christians populate the right and academics populate the left.

Both have their stories on how the world came to be like it is.

The nearby military bases employed most of the areas professionals, so some of my friends fathers (as well as several of my fathers friends) also worked for the military.

If anything, the political outlook that I was raised with was fairly Cold War, but not too pronounced.

I had some spiritual training that was useful later on, but I was like most people of my age, assimilating my indoctrination.

Policemen and others committed felonies while pursuing us, leading to the death of one woman.The Christian right has the Book of Genesis, while the left has the Big Bang and evolution.One was a conscious creation, while the other was a big and unfathomable accident. The right can veer into outright paranoia and see a conspiracy behind every bush, as it ignored or underplays the structural aspects of what is happening. It has a tendency to see everything as a big accident, with institutional forces at play and few, if any, individuals really controlling a situations outcome.I was taught that the Soviets were the bad guys, and my family generally supported politicians from the Democratic Party.My father was rather outraged when Nixon won the presidency in 1968, and I was saddened when Reagan beat Carter in 1980.
