I was reading some of a blog I found called http://www.anonymousconservative.com/blog/warfare-and-group-selection/ it is an interesting article, but a bit long. First let me state a few things: I think he brings up some very good points I will discuss, but it also despite its bluster of trying to be hard science falls into emotional appeals much like he maligns in there. The major point he brings up, is that liberals have a r-selected and traitorous strategy that seeks to destroy the main k group, where as conservatives are basically the loyal squad members. I think he see things through some rose colored glasses, but one thing I never heard, but looking back on my life rings very true: that of liberals attempting to sabotage the dominate paradigm so they hope they can get ahead in the chaos that follows.
A background about myself, I was a dyed-in-the-wool liberal through high school, I protested the iraq war with walkouts and actual protests, and generally thought any republican belief was about as self-evidently wrong as they come. (Except for guns, I had always had an affinity for them.) Though I was mega-lib I always prided myself on at least considering the alternatives, given them some credence, and I always played devils advocate.
Flash forward to college, I was in a hyper-liberal ivy league school, and while I agreed with a lot of the tenants, notably environmentalism, I was infamous for being argumentative with the standard dogma everyone else bought into. Especially things like so called ‘social justice’, and everyone’s supposed equality.
On a unconscious level I knew something was wrong. After all, fit people were just ‘better’ than fat people, smart people were better than dumb people, could I necessarily explain it? What I was not though, was heartless. I understood people being given a chance, because I had been given one early in my life. But a CHANCE was all people deserved, what I saw around me was utter desire to placate and completely uneven the play field to somehow make inferior people more desirable than the already desirable.
I had long been fascinated with eugenics, despite the demonization of them in current society. This belief was to much chagrin of my fellow students. To me, this was clearly the ONLY way we could truly be equal. ANYTHING else was either a blindness to the truth, or an outright lie, more likely the later. How the HELL could I be equal to someone I was faster than, easily twice as smart, more compassionate, more likely to help society, and generally superior in every way, yet somehow we were ‘equal’?
The absolute worst was that it did not even end at this ‘equality’ in truth to take an Animal Farm reference “some animals were more equal than others”. At my school it was women. But of the things they espoused, it was mainly about blacks. About how we need to funnel all this money into inner cities for some reason under a guise of social justice, that it ‘just wasnt fair’. I work as a fire fighter among my other jobs, and let me tell you, the hiring is utterly fucked up, among the whole ‘good old boys club’ anyone is forced to navigate the most egregious of hiring practices is in place (and not only fire fighting, most government agencies are this way) : that of racial or sexual preference points.
Let me explain briefly: if you are a women, you get bonus points, and if you are black you get bonus points (very ‘unequal’ beyond its obvious facet, no Asian bonus for example.)
Anyway, so all this permeates my mind, and I begin to wonder what truly is right and wrong. Among the most shocking of things that set me straight was obama, I was always disillusioned with politics, and obama was this ‘brave new hope’ to the world of dark dealing. I voted for him. What did a get? Bush 2.0. There were many things that changed my worldview, equally notably was the girl who broke my heart and I was forced to reevaluate everything and all the lies I was told about relationships.
So I was hit with a one/two punch, my personal life was destroyed by liberal illusions, and the outer world was equally exposed as a hypocrisy when obama was just another politician, (funded by the same people who support both sides), I did not vote for obama in 2012, I have nothing but contempt for him now.
The article gave me something very interesting to think about, clearly things like white girls talking about giving money to black inner city males did not make much logical sense. But when viewed through the evolutionary lens of a r-selected traitor gene, it makes a lot of sense, the girl knows she wont be attacked by her white male protectors regardless of how dumb she is, but if she can curry favor with the ‘evil black men’ then if they ever rise to power she hopes she will be treated better than she normally would since she ‘helped’ the outsider in.
Gives me a lot to think about, to re-evaluate why so many people were so obviously counter to their interests.
