Continuing on with the prior post, from this book – again a biology book (The Importance of Sex) that was really well referenced citing multiple cultures there were a few points that really stuck out:
1: Hard/complex situations favor fewer children but higher investment in those children
- Hard times drop the poor’s fertility huge, but the rich are insulated because of their resources and retain fairly high fertility
- In hard/complex times a few of the males often get many of the females in societies where monogamy has broken down.
Ok, perhaps you may want to reread those, as they are pretty good, I will touch on all of them now. One thing I want you to consider is that our current society in my mind is ‘hard’ on the middle class only, the rich always have it easy, and the poor are so subsized they do not feel the selective pressure they normally would.
1 No one would deny our culture and situation is getting very complex and hard to get by in this crashing economy, thus we should see a more K-selected strategy of few kids but higher investment. We do, but only partly, how many of our smartest people go childless? This could be a book itself, but it stems a lot from feminism brainwashing women into thinking they can have a career first and family later.
Also, with vast subsidies to the trash, poor people breed like the rabbits they are, cranking vast numbers of kids- all while being rewarded with even more handouts, its pretty disgusting and it is real.
- Look to the middle class to see this in action, as stated above the poor don’t really feel the effects of this collapse yet, whereas the middle class who is working all the time does. Very rare for a husband to be able to provide for a family on just one wage.
- Pretty much what every PUA/alt right blog has been saying for years, any of the 5% of guys get 90% of woman, to the more realistic 20% get 60% of women or whatever is it they are saying, but very, very true.
The guys who were cleaning up in these hard times? Either the actual rich/high status jobs, or those who fake it. Hey…guess the fake it till you make it actually DOES work, historically proven!
