Video: Sexual Selection and the Welfare State

A classic example of Pathological Altruism and dysgenics.

I won’t do the common thing, which is to mock the welfare state, because it used to be a prosocial force supporting war widows, people I have unending respect for, and single parents who had no other choice (it still happens). In short, people who went into marriage and childrearing with K-selected, virtuous intentions and various hardships caused a lethal ‘failure to thrive‘, in many respects. This had such a negative impact on the future prospects of society that such a safety net was completely necessary at the time. Its expansions were largely unmerited and now veer strongly into WTF territory with the entitlement of extreme r-types.

The modern blob we call the same is an edge case, an aberration of a limited boost programme.

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