My feeling is that the basis for reality for left-thinking people is reasoning, willing to accept change and grey areas. On the other side, it is all about belief system - and if it doesn't fit their particular paradigm, it doesn't exist or isn't legitimate.

It is troubling, and the only answer I can come up with is that "their" side continues to recede in numbers (which is inevitable due to demographics and age).
