The education myth is just a branch of the blank slate myth. The left won't even consider it - even people that consider themselves model rationalist say things like "too horrible to contemplate" when shown evidence that the blank slate is a myth.

So once the leftist believes in the blank slate myth then they have to believe that education and parenting are the major things shaping a person's mind. Behavior problems like criminality and violence must be due to the environment.

Except for sexual orientation, which as all non-homophobes know people have absolutely no control over. (Logical consistency isn't the left's strong point.)

I don't think believing that circumstances matter for whether someone commits a crime and ends up in prison is particularly left wing.

Guiliani broken-window policing is based on the idea that criminality is due to the enviroment.

Arguing that we should make it easier to get an abortion because of the Freakonomics reasons likely would be more favored by the left. The argument that it's the lead is also more popular on the left than it's on the right.
