Misoneism



Misoneism
(noun \ˌmi-sə-ˈnē-ˌi-zəm\) This word means a hatred, fear, or intolerance of innovation or change; a deep and superstitious fear of new ideas. Applied to politics, conservatives create obstructions to protect themselves from the shock of facing something new. This is easily observed in the Tea Party-controlled Republican House when expected to consider a surprising scientific or sociological fact.
