I want to know if people see the divide here in psychology.

It's hyperreality that people believe an individual alone creates their own reality.

"Relativism - the doctrine that knowledge, truth, and morality exist in relation to culture, society, or historical context, and are not absolute. "

The right-wing angle here is relativist. "Truth is whatever you think it is"

I follow rational-skepticism and science for my argumentation. Part of that is social science.

People that insist culture is constructed from the individual are relativist and essentialist.

The fact that every generation learns from the previous, and we learn our selves from within the culture, or we don't function in the culture, is self-evident. That's where social psychology comes-in.

Right-wingers hate psychology.
