Idiocracy will make people uglier, too

Thought-provoking article. http://www.socialmatter.net/2014/08/22/beauty-bubble/

The result of this confluence of factors is simple:  The current amount of beauty is a bubble, it will pop, and the world will get uglier.  There are cynics who would say that with our government subsidized high carbohydrate diets and sluts with short hairdos and tattoos aplenty, the peak of our beauty bubble is already in our rearview mirror.  They may have a point.

Facts: beauty is rare (minority) and proportionately esteemed, beauty is based in fertility cues and lead to objectively better outcomes on all good measures, European fertility is infamously sub-replacement thanks to feminism. We acquired the term “good-looking” from the association between handsomeness and civilized behaviour.

As earlier;

But not so fast.  Blue-eyed blondes with heart shaped asses are not an infinite largesse bestowed upon us by a higher power.  We are all of woman borne, and if you understand heredity you understand that beautiful girls must, on average, have mothers that were also beautiful.  That is to say, to keep this current beauty spigot flowing the world needs beautiful women to have daughters.

Nature is self-correcting. The slappers, as we call them here, likely gained those looks by genetic randomness their improper behaviour doesn’t support, since the most beautiful women tend to be least promiscuous, as they can demand commitment from men and need not lure them in with sex as an easy bait. However, they are smart enough to use this value to lock down a good man while in low notch numbers. Sluts hate them for this, they get the big prize, so the sluts try to argue their experiences of being used up like a sex toy were positive.

I know it’s anecdotal, but I’ve seen most sluts are 4-6, tops. I am being kind with that estimate.

The article is correct, there will be far fewer beautiful people in the future, male and female. Good-looking men are cautious with contraception and are putting off conceiving too, perhaps indefinitely. There are no rewards for the old family model. On an infinite timeline? A recursion.

Thousands of winters of scarce, sparse prey and harsh terrain culled a significant percentage of men.

This would probably be a few recessions without welfare keeping the r-type brats in iPhones. More and more people, competing against fewer and fewer beautiful people (and notice the right-wing tends to be hotter than the left? no coincidence). The effect is threefold: 1. ugly women try to promote ugliness as a new standard. 2. most men go without and stay at home with porn. 3. beautiful people interbreed, creating an aristocracy, as they make more money, keeping child N small because they’re usually k-types. Or as point three is known now “growing income inequality”.

The ugly women went barren and beauty flourished.

Notice these strong, independent women aren’t going to sperm banks en masse? Seems men aren’t so replaceable. They can’t chase the Government if their welfare check stops. Children are a burden to them.

By decoupling sex and reproduction, it is selecting for those who really want kids.  Will beauty survive?  We’ll have to wait and see.

I believe it will, but it will take a long time to recover and lessons will be learnt e.g. feminism is for ugly women to drag down pretty ones, while faking the signs of the pretty and denying the very existence of pretty.

And what of designer babies? No one, and I mean, NO ONE, will choose ugly ones. We’ll soon find there’s a beauty standard to white, blue-eyed and physically fit. The Viking marauders chose to rape the best and stab the rest, what we see in modernity is the fruit of their eugenic process, and extremes of cold in Northern Europe are a great survival test for good genes.

  1. The article is correct, there will be far fewer beautiful people in the future, male and female. Good-looking men are cautious with contraception and are putting off conceiving too, perhaps indefinitely. There are no rewards for the old family model. On an infinite timeline? A recursion.

    What about embryo selection and genetic engineering?

    At least the Chinese, Koreans and Japanese are going to be all over that once it’s possible.

    And I’m pretty sure a good number of Westerners too.

    In the middle run, people optimized through scientific means are going to walk over the rest. Look at the Jews, a mere 15 point advantage in verbal IQ..

      • Perhaps there’ll be legal restrictions, for example.

        Surely, at first.

        However, people will simply go abroad. Outlawing actually genetically modified children would be impossible, as likely no one is going to be using artificially engineereed sequences but instead copying them from others, so it’d be completely insane to ban something beneficial that can occur naturally.

        Furthermore, the list of possible traits that might be provided is very impressive. Janos von Neumann had savant-like mental abilities, photographic memory and so on..

        Hans Bethe once said of him.. “I always thought Von Neumann’s brain indicated that he was from another species, an evolution beyond man.”

        Very good point, and completely true, but GE can be used like AI, to justify any outcome.

        Justify? What do you mean by that? Engineering doesn’t justify, it’s about problem solving.

        Philosophers and lawyers and their ilk.. justify.

      • By justify, I mean anytime a person wants to say “society will look like-” they can use GE. GE society of geniuses, GE society of kindness and equality, it’s a way to projection whatever the arguer thinks of as the best traits and conveniently kills any dissent. I agree, it couldn’t be outlawed fully but it would be like an arms race and become meaningless quickly.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
