Iain Banks Quotes: We Got Talking About How Some People

We Got Talking About How Some People Were Selfish And Some Weren't, And The Difference Between Right-wing People And Left-wing People. You Said It All Came Down To Imagination. Conversative People Don't Usually Have Very Much, So They Find It Hard To Imagine What Life Is Like For People Who Aren't Just Like Them. They Can Only Empathise With People Just Like They Are: The Same Sex, The Same Age, The Same Class, The Same Golf Club Or Nation Or Race Or Whatever. Liberals Can Pretty Much Empathise With Anybody Else, No Matter How Different They Are. It's All To Do With Imagination, Empathy And Imagination Are Almost The Same Thing, And It's Why Artists, Creative People, Are Almost All Liberals, Left-leaning. A Character In The Steep Approach To Garbadale: Iain Banks.
