S4 Ep 3 TLDL Jonathan Haidt

Updated: Sep 28

sorry if this one ran over time, I love JH so much it's hard to condense all his wisdom into <30mins. His website yourmorals.org to find out where you fit in. Also the website for this topic and to get started on your journey into the world of Jonathan Haidt.


If you're looking to actually read a bit more, here's a link to the chapter dealing with this topic.


The R word I was looking for is Rumpsringa. Rumspringa (Pennsylvania German), also spelled Rumschpringe or Rumshpringa, is a rite of passage during adolescence, translated in English as "jumping or hopping around", used in some Amish communities. Rumspringa happens some time in mid to late teens and ends when a youth chooses either to be baptized in the Amish church or to leave the community. I was close, although I also have in my head: the codeword is rochambeau, dig me? It still astounds me how "leftist" = college educated elites is so opposite to Australian or British politics, at least, up until a few years ago. I find these conversations with such labels aren't that helpful, so i apologise for falling into those patterns from time to time. Labels give us a way to discuss broader concepts, but we can get too attached to them. May I suggest we start calling them "sticky notes" instead, knowing such terms can drop away with ease, and with age.



The Pillars of Morality Number 1 (the challenge: demand satisfaction)


  1. Care: cherishing and protecting others; opposite of harm

  2. Fairness: rendering justice according to shared rules; opposite of cheating

  3. Loyalty or ingroup: standing with your group, family, nation; opposite of betrayal

  4. Authority or respect: submitting to tradition and legitimate authority; opposite of subversion

  5. Sanctity or purity: maintaining purity of things, foods, actions; opposite of degradation
