When I was a teenager in high school, long before I knew anything about American politics, I remember seeing a Mad Magazine cartoon which read:

"If you're not a liberal by the time you're 20, you have no heart. And if you're not a conservative by the time you're 40, you have no head.

I was reminded by this article of the work of George Lakoff, who correlated political world views to family/parenting styles:

It makes sense...I don't like either party, and I never wanted kids.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

The only problem I have with theories such as Lakoff's is that I'm not sure whether or not they are just tautological. In other words, is he saying more than "Conservative families are conservative, and liberal families are liberal"?

A problem I have with it is that IMO, a lot of it comes down not to "strict" vs. "supportive," but to controlling vs. permissive, and the fact of the matter is that liberal politicians are more permissive in some situations, and conservative ones are more permissive in others.
