“....a lot of right wing adrenaline junkies”
“goose stepping goonery of K threat”
Notice, the mere talk of threat freaked you out enough you exposed yourself. That is amygdala, and you can’t think clearly with it going off in your head. I’m not even sure you understood what I wrote, from your reply.
Here’s how it will go. The Conservative machine will ignore me, and continue to play nice, because they are idiots. Leftism will continue to advance for a short while longer, and then we will be back in Lord of the Flies, because Liberals have screwed up our finances so bad, government will basically be cut back to nothing but national defense.
It will happen much sooner and much faster than anyone thinks, because as Kyle Bass has noted, when it is this big, everybody lies, and things are always worse than they are portrayed, by a lot.
Get ready for the threat environment.
And thanks for playing.

You forgot the RINOs, but I am thinking they would either be Opportunistic Weasels who pretend to be K selected by in reality are r selected.
What is a “K-selective environment?” I hate it when people use jargon and fail to tell me what it means. I skipped the rest of your potentially good article because of this.
You are dead on. Although I will add one thing. Ideology seems to be associated with a brain structure called the amygdala, which develops in response to threat. Basically, as you experience danger, and learn how to cope with it, your amygdala develops, and if the MRI studies are any measure, you become more Conservative.
In some ways, Liberals may deny reality as a way of shielding the amygdala, by avoiding risk. Threat stimuli, like the article describes, may say risk can no longer be ignored, and thus one has no choice but to prepare oneself to deal with it, mentally. Once neurologically prepared to confront risk, Conservatism may be more acceptable to you.
One thing that struck me was the whole attack on the amygdala of conservatives recently in the media. In certain scientific articles recently they said that the Conservatives were “obviously more primitive because their Amygdala was a lot larger and thus more primitive” and that the liberal mind was superior because their “primitive part of their brain was smaller”. However this is predicated upon the false narrative that the Amygdala is what makes one primitive and is only as these articles put it “an organ of fear”.
You grasp the idea that this part of the brain is very much needed for actually DEALING with fear and coordinating with the rest of the brain in coming up with solutions. Thus someone with an underdeveloped amygdala would in essence “short circuit” as they never really develop this part of the brain. Seems to be a link with neural plasticity, as in the whole adage “if you don’t use it you lose it” and as such it could be liberalism is nothing more than people learning incorrectly at a young age to avoid certain things that then cause their brain to wire itself into the patterns of liberalism. Of course there could be a genetic component to neural plasticity as well making some people more prone to it if they were not raised right. This could also be why the welfare state is a self perpetuating meme that builds itself up in time when resources are not an issue. Welfare creates large pastures for rabbits where they can roam free and not have to worry about the wolves called reality, thus leading the people to be raised there to never have to exercise that part of their brain they need in a k selection scenario...
What I also find funny is the whole gist of these articles on how bad it is to have a large amygdala seem to be a liberal attempt at “outgrouping” conservatives by trying to make them feel they are part of a small group who is primitive and “no longer needed” it is astounding to me how ironic this after reading your material.
Just some musings on this, very good and fascinating stuff... I will try to remeber this next time I am taking to some liberal acquaintances.
Sorry about that. I write these things for a blog community that follows me, and as a result, I forget to explain the basic stuff. Thank you for pointing it out. In the future I will alter the posts on FR to include basic stuff.
In evolutionary biology, K-selection is a condition where there are not enough resources to go around. It creates a selection pressure which culls the population for a specific psychology, namely competitive, monogamous, two-parent rearing, sexually protective of children, and loyal to the in-group which is needed to compete and avoid being denied resources (and killed).
Its opposite is r-selection, which is a condition of free resource availability, where competition with peers is unnecessary. It produces the opposite psychology, namely docile, and competition averse, promiscuous, single parenting, children have sex as early as possible, and there is no loyalty to in-group, since the in-group is not needed to get food. It becomes more personally selfish.
I maintain Liberalism and Conservatism are two psychologies which arise in humans, to adapt us to r or K environments in our civilizations. Let a civilization succeed, and produce free reproduce availability, and the population will go r, and Liberalism will rise. Liberalism carries with it several illogical aspects, which will then crash the civilization, and return it to a K-selected model, which will then grow more Conservative.
You can see the graphic above for a visual represnetation.
You are correct, and very perceptive.
Whoah. Fascinating...and scary..I read more at the site, and it makes a lot of sense, especially with the stimulation (and overload) of electronic media and dopamine levels.
I feel a little used...or more like... controlled.
The old saying “A man is an Island” rings true as in if you don’t become a victim of clicks and group think you truly can become independent!

Yeah, Borg are the apex of collectivism...
I was always fond of Larry Elder’s, “Where were you educated? Have you thought of suing for malpractice?”
To everything there.
“as a prelude to a long held belief - that post-modern leftists dont (cant?) argue using reason - they rely on emotion.”
Fear is an emotion. The argument supported in this thread is an appeal to emotion, not logic.
Whatever overturns the self-image he's trying to project. If he's promoting feminism, show his position to be damaging to women. If he's promoting himself as a champion of blacks, expose him as a racist.
At all times, expose him as a coward and worthless human.
Thats how I treat libs. And it works. At events, hold up signs that show the left to really be simpletons. Intersperse those signs with meaningful ones.
When being interviewed, show the left to be simpletons. Talk at the second grade level explaining their degrees in minority studies doesn’t give them an understanding of what you are talking about.
A lib friend of mine complained to me about him being called a low information voter. I explained is is code saying he really is a low intelligence voter. His head exploded.
Thanks for your comments. One interpretation of liberalism is that it tends to be more common when there is less fear of consequences for one’s actions. If one believes one can have frequent, casual sexual encounters without the outcome of obligation as a parent or debilitating disease, then one can believe that’s ok behavior and support rules that promote that societally. If you don’t have to suffer the broad and negative consequences of paying for lavish government spending, then you can reap the mild psychological benefit of imagining it helps somebody somewhere. If a gov’t rule bans the property of someone other than yourself and you don’t see any threat to your personal safety, then you can easily be fooled into illogical justifications for the ban. And on it goes.
“I was always fond of Larry Elders, Where were you educated? Have you thought of suing for malpractice?”
That’s a good one—and there are some tangible examples of malpractice in more than a few college courses. I have seen it firsthand. For some instructors, it is so much easier to deliver editorials than it is to lecture about the subject.
I appreciate the explanation. I went to your jump-link about K-Selection, and it’s just not my brand of jargon. I speak my own jargon, so I don’t use that as a pejorative.....
Your points are very logical...for animals. The point of civilization, seems to me, is to maintain K-like behavior in the face of an r environment. It’s like being thrifty even when well-off. If we’re seeing more problems lately it is because society’s been weakened. If we’re failing something, it’s failure to teach the purpose and manner of civilization to kids, and that’s a failing of gummint schools. Gumint schools weren’t always lousy at it, but they’ve become so over the past 20-40 years.
They’ve been creating animals. Intact families have been doing their best, and with much success, but there are hardly any intact families anymore. Meanwhile, the country is being forced to scarcity of resources (crashing the civilization), so it’s probably a moot point.
Yep. Liberalism is actually an advantageous strategy, from Darwin’s perspective, if actions don’t have consequences.
Sex, food, etc are all good to do, if there is no consequences to doing it freely.
It is only when resources tighten up, that the guy who mates with just any girl will see his numerous offspring killed off by the guy who selects a mate carefully, and monopolizes her with monogamy, to produce a fitter kid.
Likewise with fighting. The guy who avoids fights does well, if he can get food elsewhere. But once the only people who eat are the ones who fight, you see that culled back too.
Yes, perfectly put.
