Conservatives form their positions on the basis of reason, science, and history. Leftists form their positions based on feelings and rhetoric.
The long video at this link demonstrates this fact. Canadian academic Jordan Peterson debates Feminist media operative Cathy Newman. Jordan consistently relies on empirical data and the scientific method to defend his positions, such as his position that the differences between women are products of evolution, not the patriarchy, such as his position that the “wage gap” is not entirely a product of the patriarchy discriminating against women, but rather reflects on the choices men and women make. The media operative can only spout rhetoric, make accusations, and try to trap him semantically.
And here is another video of Camille Paglia explaining her thesis that cultural celebrations of androgyny and transgenderism and attacks on masculinity are harbingers of cultural and societal collapse.
