Not Sure Haidt Has anything More To Say

In 2008, when Jonathan Haidt was first getting started on his theories of how people had fundamentally different moral systems that expressed themselves differently in politics, I thought he had some interesting ideas. Problem is, it seems to me from this latest piece that Haidt has become one of those people who has one fundamental insight and keeps reworking it. I don't see what he is saying here as any different from what he was saying 4 years ago.
