Where Spencer is wrong

Youtube comments, what do ya know? Tell me your secrets.

My friends read these (and rarely, write in themselves) so you don’t have to!
The little bitches could do the editing for me, though.

He should really study up on Trivers’ Parental Investment theory, that one would count as individualistic-oriented, I think. It also ties into r/K. Spencer is saying up with K-strategy, basically, which is individualistic in comparison to the rest of the world. Look at birth rates!

Try to find national case studies or go by national heroes.

Good find, there is no such thing as an individual in evolutionary or biological terms. There is only the breeding unit (plus surviving spawn) – man and woman, here defined in our culture as the nuclear unit.

Biologically, single humans do not exist because humans are not an asexual species.
Collectivist races tend to have extended family (Asians, genetic-Asian “Native” Americans) or a total breakdown of family but an extended community (The Hood).

For other theories Spencer could stand to use, anything about the amygdala, oxytocin and Terror Management Theory.

I’ve linked this before but it’s a good start.

It’s ripe for discussion.

There’s no such thing as ‘harmless hedonism’, as libertarians imply.
The state must absorb the cost of their social damage e.g. STDs, abortions, drug resistance.
Is it really a freedom if someone else is paying for its consequences?

I find it ironic the winning ‘strategy’ of the Non-Aggression Principle (a wimp’s Golden Rule) is to either behave or plot murder. The solution to violence is violence. Instead of threat of violence, we have a guarantee. The evil of society will spontaneously and logically agree to stop pursuing a selfish strategy, in their mind.

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