Recommendation, The Fundamentalist Mind: How Polarized Thinking Imperils Us All by Stephen Larsen.

I have not yet read this, but I just listened to a great interview of the doctor/author. He sounds like he's coming at this from a developmental psychologist's perspective (which may or may not be his research backgroung, I don't yet know) regarding how in the light of very difficult world/personal problems, we react almost at the level of a child based on Piaget's work, abdicating the difficult rationality for simplicity.

Personally, I blame Traffic Engineers, currently numero uno on the shit list.
