The Political, Social, & Religious Ideology of the Millennial Generation, Post-9/11
Political, social, and religious values of young-adults from the millennial generation were investigated. Data was gathered through extensive interviews of roughly 80 question, and a 17-question social values questionnaire. There were 15 participants, 5 females, and 10 males. Interviews were analyzed for evidence of Lakoff's Moral Metaphors, as well as Haidt and Graham, and Haidt and Joseph's Moral Intuitions. The interviews provide strong support for the majority of liberal moral metaphors, while providing moderate support for the conservative moral metaphors as well as Haidt and Joseph's Moral Intuitions. The data also indicated an additional conservative moral ethic of Personal Responsibility, one that was suggested by, Dan McAdams.
