Then again my actually political views tend to span the liberal/conservative spectrum so I suppose this is not surprising.
Haskell is more liberal than ruby (functional programming)
C is more liberal than Haskell (weak typing)
Also, I am apparently a radically conservative programmer, but my political views in real life tend toward radical liberalism. I think any correlation says more about age than it does about politics.
Not according to the article, which is what my comment was in response to.

Quite possible, I'm 26.
I see. Yes, Haskell meets all the criteria for a conservative language, emphasizing safety, and verifiability, and automated testing. However, purely anecdotally, I can't think of a single person I've worked for that uses C++ approving of Haskell because it is so radically different. But perhaps this doesn't matter.
