Republican vs Democrat?

Ideologies can change through rational means. A good book, a good two day seminar, a good thought can radically change a person’s ideas about politics and economics and what is moral and ethical and just.
Moral character and temperament does not easily change. These require hard work and sacrifice and concentration at a frequency that is mind boggling to the person who’s never sat still for more than 10 minutes. Moral characters such as kindness, patience, courage to tell the truth no matter what, and temperaments of calm, rational judgement, wisdom in the person’s every actions. These are the traits that are rare in humans and hard to accumulate.
So very hard.
