"When you get older you'll be more conservative" is predicated on the expectation that when you're older you'll have something to conserve


@Louisa I don't buy that conventional wisdom carte blanche. My parents were quite conservative (dad: financially; mom: culturally) during my youth, but after exposure to more of the world they are both more liberal in many ways. They are donating time and money and effort and passion to "liberal" things they care about now that they maybe always would have, but to which they merely lacked exposure.

@cliff1976 yeah mine are liberals and they always have been, I'm just talking about the idea
