Also from 2021 (Thank you Rob Henderson) is Tyler Cowen examining whether the world is really as woke as it appears.
Left-wing views, at least on some issues, might have more of a “least common denominator” element than do many right-wing views. On average, the intellectual right is more likely to insist on biological differences between men and women, whereas the intellectual left is more likely to insist on equality of capabilities. No matter your view, the left approach is easier to incorporate into mission statements, company slogans, and corporate human-resource policies. Egalitarian slogans require less explanation, are less likely to get an institution into trouble with the law, and are more compatible with a desire to attract a broad range of workers and customers.
He also starts his conclusions with "It follows that, if Conquest’s Second Law is true, societies are more right-wing than they appear." Short read. Worth it.
