Are liberals caring and trusting towards other people because they haven't formed good bonds with other people? Reflecting back on my own life, I was more liberal when I felt I needed other people. So I would, in my view have a naive view of people and the world because I needed people and world. However, as I formed better personally relationships, I feel it gave me the freedom to view others and the world more accurately and thus I became more right wing. Can people relate to this?
