Why am I not more partisan?

Each of these statements maps to a set of political ideas:

  1. The world is ending slowly and there’s nothing you can do about it.
  2. The world is not ending.

I believe statement 1 more, but both statements have the same effect on me if I take them as true. This means I’m less partisan than my beliefs suggest, and that I’m both very rational and very irrational.
