This is correct, and it applies to leftists as well. It's actually really hard to imagine the lack of something you take for granted. How can you imagine what the world is without air, if you've always known air? That's why travel is so educational. I know that I learned a whole lot about what makes the USA fucking awesome after going to lots of other places and learning more about how life works there, in particular Europe. Liberals tend to have a very shallow awareness of the outside world and even when they travel to foreign places they often do it in a way that keeps them separate from real day to day life there. It's incredibly easy to find blogs and such like this ladies featuring white people who moved to other countries and you can read about their seriously eye-opening discoveries and inevitable return home.
