I think it was a psychology class on experimental design that taught me how to spot obvious flaws in methodology like this one….
Remember the whiny, insecure kid in nursery school, the one who always thought everyone was out to get him, and was always running to the teacher with complaints? Chances are he grew up to be a conservative.
At least, he did if he was one of 95 kids from the Berkeley area that social scientists have been tracking for the last 20 years.
I don’t even need to read the rest of the article to spot the obvious problem with this study. If there were any conservative kids in Berkley then everyone really was out to get them. Simple.
