The same actually can't be said about religious people. Even the most fundamentalist, conservative, never-left-small-town-Utah LDS person has met more people who disagree with them than someone living in a elite blue circles in the cities I mentioned. I think this is actually on topic. But I'm going to speak for the other side. The fact is that when you're in a majority, there is less opportunity to even meet people who disagree with you. So demographics skew the laws of probability in the favor of the minorities being more cosmopolitan. I don't know if it is "anyone's fault' as much as the laws of probability. Sure, many people actually like being in that bubble. But for many, it's just a fact of life. Edited August 6, 2019 by Mores Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
