I think we're having a language definition problem. I think you're seeing deficient as a value judgment and I'm seeing deficient as lacking sensitivity to 3 of 5 (or 6) factors relative to conservatives. I've already mentioned that I don't judge other people's sense of morality, didn't I?

I think you (and others) have difficulty with what I'm saying because my thought process and sense of morality is different.
The mixing of populations lowers the cost of being unusual.
