The lines from Gilbert and Sullivan – ‘That every boy and every gal/That’s born into the world alive/Is either a little Liberal/Or else a little Conservative!’ – highlight a fundamental issue for psychologists in exploring psychological processes underpinning our political values, beliefs, and attitudes, and, indeed, our political institutions: we bring our own political values and beliefs to that table. Indeed, in his brilliant analysis of the way psychological processes interact with, and distort, economic thinking, Daniel Kahneman introduced the principle of ‘confirmation bias’, searching for, and finding, information that supports or reinforces our pre-existing beliefs. The same psychological processes operate, I’m sure, in relation to political thinking.

我怀疑是您的记者的预先存在的信念,E. Angell.(July 2017) veer towards the right side of the political spectrum, given their reference to Jeremy Corbyn’s ideology as ‘linked to long-standing anti-Western and pro-terrorism sympathies’, etc. Nevertheless, the publication of the letter as a rejoinder to the pieces in the June ‘Democracy in danger’ articles illustrates two processes central to the growth and development of democracy and the institutions that support it: firstly, a willingness to air and give psychological space to counterargument; and, secondly, to critically analyse, both empirically and, from the perspective of psychological processes, any biases which may distort the argument and its conclusions.

我绝不有资格评论托马斯Piketty的作品,其工作安尔抱怨是无诠释的。然而,本着开放调查的精神并对自己的心理偏见进行反击,我在二十一世纪批评了他的书籍资本主义的批评。最突出的批评是由Mark J. Warshawsky在乔治梅森大学的Marcator Centy的Mark J.Warshawsky报告了Piketty方法论的几种重要缺陷。这所大学在乔治·蒙博的守护者中,仅在2017年7月19日(2017年7月19日)之前,作为Charles Koch,美国最富有人之一的慷慨捐赠的受益人。本文进一步介绍了Koch和其他商业泰森的资助,通过他们赞助的学术研究所,“代表富人镇压民主的隐藏计划”。

当心理学家探讨民主的威胁时,他们应该考虑最引人注目的心理偏见:那些支付吹笛者的人呼吁调整。
