In spite of some interesting insights, the idea of moral psycology is somewhat comical. The bottom line is that you cannot understand anything about human beings if you leave out (or reduce) their two most obvious (an mysterious) features: reason and freedom. The last sentence is downright funny, because the guy is clearly being very bold:

“It is at least possible,” he said, “that conservatives and traditional societies have some moral or sociological insights that secular liberals do not understand.”

For that matter, it is also at least possible that secular liberals do not understand much about anything. After all, what they think they understand is just what is written in their genes.
