This is helpful in understanding people with opposite political views from yours. For years I have used a similar comparison using the difference between women and men. It is less likely to cause an argument that way. The facts I present are: a dark street and a man leaning on a lamppost. A woman will see these facts and react differently than a man would for obvious reasons. So to with politics, the facts are the same but the left and right react differently to them. This article helps to understand that and why.
