I think the difference between me and them is this: I am an educator and philosopher, who happens to be a socialist. My politics are derived from my science. He, on the other hand, is a conservative, who happens to be a professor. His science is derived from his politics. I'm aware that this is a bit of a caricature, but it seems in the main to be an accurate representation. I have no particular objection to his being a conservative, but I would have an objection were he unwilling to accept the primacy of reason and evidence.
