I care a lot about authority, not so much about harm

The New York Times is now free for the reading, so go ahead and follow that link! They've given me free crossword puzzles through the end of the year to make up for the fact that I'm getting a freeeee riiiiide, when I've already paid. Not that I would ever abuse my subscriber status to give you free crosswords on the DL, but I don't do them.

I took the moral foundation quiz mentioned in the linked article. The green moral foundations are mine.

Except for the harm score -- whether people are harmed weighs rather less on my moral judgments than on either liberals or conservatives -- I'm in the happy middle ground. So, if you were thinking I were something other than a middle-of-the-road moderate, very large computers at the University of Virginia are disagreeing with you.

update: Except for gambling, liberals tend to fall somewhere between me and conservatives on the actual issues test. So, my moderation can be reasonably questioned.

Gambling? I just want you to know I am taking this personally:)
