Darwin was an idealistic Christian.
Culture is GENETIC.
“Yet many languages also have words that English speakers might think of as “basic” emotions — love, hate, anger, fear, sadness, happiness. Early theories, influenced by Charles Darwin and pegged to shared biological structures in humans, suggest there are certain universal emotions that serve as the source material for all others, as primary colors might be blended to create many new shades.
Universalism is bullshit. All shades. Not All ___ is a derailment, attempt to enable, dismiss or deflect or simple result of a category error.
But just as later work has suggested that different cultures do not always categorize color in the same ways,
Different rods/cones plus evolution.
there’s a growing understanding that even those supposedly “primary” emotions may hold their own meanings and nuances in different cultures that aren’t directly translatable.“
Apply Occam to this. People are not cogs, Rousseau!
Language is also genetic. Really. This is known.
Preview of what they’ll “discover” next, trying to get ahead of the net?
Humanity, as we WEIRD individualists think of it, is also non-uniform throughout the species. Diversity aka variation exists, a scale of 0-100, if you will. Basically? Some races are crueler than others, simply put. Others less sadistic, even to their own people, animals, children, elderly etc. Science is catching up. We are not, as we’ll be told, dehumanising THEM, they dehumanise themselves, they hurt one another, what better treatment can WE expect?
Civilization is a combination of simple factors and conditions inc. IQ (organism and national), honesty (low cultural corruption*), genetic individualism, K-select breeding and rearing and finally, low sadism (antisociality in the population, little pathology, especially sexual sadism). When “high trust” is required historically (the current PC code for this) the West succeeds because of its low racial sadism (and resultant bias towards justice) and tendency to punish/cull predators (civil unrest) instead of reward with money, rape victims, goats, whatever. High culture is produced by ALL these factors, you can’t make exceptions for your own hedonism.
It looks like collectivism but it isn’t – it doesn’t hide personal responsibility or agency behind Muh Group Card (like the men who marry in China and are allowed to cheat, two-faced “duty”) or the need for virtue as The Other Guy’s Problem. It isn’t cruel or cowardly in secret, it’s openly FAIR. Cruelty is the key sign of an inferior mind.
The SJWs don’t name me for that reason. The science is coming out.
m-m-m-muh appeal to authority?
*So neither China nor Russia will run jack shit. They cannot innovate in a vacuum. The kitten-crushers of Japan and China make shitty parents and military generals. Honour culture isn’t a parade, it’s bravery. It’s sacrifice.
