It is the love hormone because love also means protection.
“Grounded in the idea that ethnocentrism also facilitates within-group trust, cooperation, and coordination, we conjecture that ethnocentrism may be modulated by brain oxytocin, a peptide shown to promote cooperation among in-group members.”
Have we found the hormone for the k-selected?
The higher oestrogen of women (general finding) depresses amygdala (stress) activity (this is written up on wikipedia if you want to link-follow) but oxytocin release increases amygdala stimulation over the top of the oestrogen signal, which is otherwise fine and generally neuroprotective (presumably so we don’t miscarry when a shadow looks like a guy).
So maybe the way to get women caring less about the ‘refugees’ and remember their personal safety is now their job, not a husband, is to pass out free oxytocin nasal sprays?
Or put it in the water supply?
I’m kinda serious. It’s crazy enough to work.
Compassion fatigue already set in years ago, ride the wave and reduce the maternal clucking of middle-age Boomers.
I wonder if military service induces oxytocin release for male-male bonding?
“Results show that oxytocin creates intergroup bias because oxytocin motivates in-group favoritism and, to a lesser extent, out-group derogation. These findings call into question the view of oxytocin as an indiscriminate “love drug” or “cuddle chemical” and suggest that oxytocin has a role in the emergence of intergroup conflict and violence.”
Dare I dream?
It doesn’t mention that when ANY ingroup meets ANY outgroup, the natural result is competition because Darwin.
It isn’t a choice or a value judgement. War happens constantly, it is the norm. When modern food supply runs low, it’ll come back, roaring back, bigger and badder than ever. We’re in the experiment.
Race to survive, anyone?
You might remember there was a BS flurry in the MSM about a chemical that reduces ‘racism’ – this was it.
It doesn’t – because ‘ingroup preference’ (the positive social term, along with the lesser known and more genetic genophilia) is totally natural. They stupidly assumed they could extend the ingroup to literally everyone in the whole world. The brain resists this, that’s why they haven’t drugged us all by now.
Since among other findings;
It increases patriotism for one’s culture and love of one’s family.
It changed freedom of association to genetic kin and love of the flag but not corporations.
It studies Asians which is a hiccup but hormones tend to have broad effects.
The men of society love strength in their social group of other men.
It also leads to monogamy and fidelity – in MEN.
Ding ding ding K-type central.
“Together, our results suggest that where OXT release is stimulated during a monogamous relationship, it may additionally promote its maintenance by making men avoid signaling romantic interest to other women through close-approach behavior during social encounters. In this way, OXT may help to promote fidelity within monogamous human relationships.”
I would bet that sluts, the promiscuous with higher and higher N counts, with damaged pair bonding, release less.
More studies on whites and women needed but otherwise, great work.
Nature is literally against these ‘social engineers’, too kind a term, for penpushers and petty meddlers.
New fave GIF, will get a lot of use.
BTW the primary source of oxytocin in humans would be ..the nuclear family. You’d have to knock that out to bring multiculturalism in.
Gold mine, this interview.
We are losing the means of production to more ruthless countries in the Far East, and we are running out of natural resources. Unrest in far away countries have started cramping our wanderlust—quick now, 2017 might be your last chance to see the Louvre, the Pyramids and the beaches of Pattaya! And speaking of Pattaya, sexually transmitted diseases are quickly becoming immune to treatment, thus limiting us even in our choices of partners, and in their numbers, automatically unwinding the Sexual Revolution of the 1960s.
He gets it.
Mark Stein said “The future belongs to those who show up,” and as Evola noted, what we have to do now is to hold out, to “ride the tiger,” to “remain standing in the ruins,” to (as Rod Dreher posited) take the Benedict Option and become neo-monastics. And have children, of course. Lots and lots of children.
We need real intellectuals to replace the Cultural Marxists, once the ivory tower falls.
From the HBD side, both Anonymous Conservative and Jayman have previously agreed that the low birth rate of liberals is a feature and not a bug. The former from the perspective of low child-rearing in r-selection and the latter from genetics and, I guess, Malthus?
It’s connected, r-type extinction events are Malthusian in nature.
Obviously, the PC practice of pathological altruism (there is an academic book of that title on the subject) is applying ingroup evolved mechanisms to depress the ingroup birthrate and increase the outgroup based on the largesse of state theft. It’s a combination of resource reparations and treacherous (if not suicidal and insane) genocide, by the post-WW2 original definitions, already linked here.
~tuts in Social Darwinism~
A selection of neat lil quotes.
“But even people who think about this when it comes to profit and organisations often don’t think about the equivalent for ideas and cultural practices.
To wit: if you want a culture or idea to survive, the people who practice it must have high birth rates…
Because ideas, like most things in this world, are heritable. Both genetics and culture mean that parents in general pass their values on to their children. Take away the children, and you take away the people likely to hold the idea tomorrow.
Of course, people are apt to forget this, because it’s a slow-moving effect. The faster way ideas spread is through communication across a given population.
requires homogeneity and a culture of respect for received wisdom, interrupted in the 20th century, when all the major fault-lines started showing
Which is all well and good. The more you spread the idea, the more people who hold it right now, and, ceteris paribus, the more people will hold it next generation…..”
Richard Dawkins did not advance the idea of a meme.
It was Darwin.
The ‘gene’ is an idea of transmitted information, it is not limited to the biological, it is symbolic theory nor limited to precise ranges of biological material. That is a 20th century use based on chemical experiments to ‘crack’ human DNA using computers.
‘Origin of the Species’ should be on school reading lists. It isn’t because it’s accurate and unPC. Many science teachers aren’t qualified to explain it either, knowing nothing about say, farming or animal breeding, which are used in examples. You need life experience to explain life.
Meanwhile, the intelligent are either at home or in the wider workforce.
Later, on progressivism, political correctness, social justice warrior feminism etc…
Feminism in particular needs a constant fresh crop of young women far more than Patriarchy.
Anti-natal ideologies are parasitic on the host’s reproductive potential, it cripples more surely than Polio. Just look at abortion and anything labelled Cultural Marxism, it’s dysgenic, it’s a society-killer. Just like there are no centuries-old atheist or multicultural societies, these things do not have any survivability or, in PC terms, sustainability (really longevity, they don’t stand up to the scrutiny of history). The ‘right side of history’ rhetoric assumes humans have innately changed within a few generations and the old rules no longer apply.
Why? They are ‘fat and happy’ for the first time in human history. If you look up the history of mankind, we are not designed for this surplus unless our behaviours are prosocial and good for fitness of our ‘family’, genetic kin. (To love your neighbour had always previously meant distant genetic kin). However, charity has murdered the West as well as it has Africa, the fighting spirit and much of the independence and creativity has gone, the intellectual thirst died with candy. A little hunger if we fell behind on bills without welfare or some reliable religious fasting kept us sharp, there are plenty of studies that demonstrate health benefits, epigenetics is coming in, microbiome improvements AND the cognitive spectrum from starvation to gluttony, each with particular traits. Could it have been a sin because it leads to a decadent mind? Perhaps. Too much of a good thing is a very, very bad thing. All these anti-obesity efforts that blame the wrong thing (it isn’t fat, it’s carbs) and increase the price of basic foodstuffs (see CPI and how starvation includes malnutrition, with the lower nutrient profile of mass-produced food) and THAT is a superior explanation for K-shift and the so-called ‘rise of conservatism’ like a tidal wave.
Bread and circuses.
The deepest self-loathing is genetic suicide, the notion you don’t deserve to live – into the next generation.
All surviving religions have a pro-natal credo. This is not a coincidence.
I like these old-type posts but feel I’m explaining why water is wet.
If you’re searching for dysgenic factors or variables to trigger suicidal liberals.
It’s slowly trickling out to the public.
And the Terror Management Theory it’s based on, paper:
Conservative shift is highly significant.
As the footage shows one of the women rips off her string bikini top leaving her wearing just a pair of skimpy swimming bottoms.
She deserves it.
She ruined other people’s lives.
Those families can never recover now.
She is spat at and hit across the back of the head by the pair of angry women, before she is dragged around by her hair.
The brutal footage is said to have been recorded by one of the husbands, who makes no attempt to intervene.
Why are the husbands exempt from punishment?
That’s how you know we aren’t quite there yet.
The other men should be knocking around the male cheats.
All the hallmarks of a PUA, including the over-reliance on drinking spots.
Man seduces woman, woman publicly shames him.
Sounds fair, actually. Even the r-selected are turning, slowly. It’s always the women who shift first.
Seduction laws will be brought back in soon enough and there’s no deadline on criminal prosecutions (no sexism either). I hope the PUAs have a savings account for all the lawyers they’ll need (name and other identity fraud will make it worse, as previously covered).
The best part is that, by PUA theory, it wasn’t harassment at all (and so he can’t legally claim that) because she was doing him a favour. AMOGing over local men and a severe DHV as a player. She might as well have written “Serial Seducer” above his name and photo.
Her reputation management would help her. His ‘shame’ would simultaneously protect K-women, who are forewarned, and attract the sluts. Gossip is totally legal and it isn’t defamation if it’s true, he has no legal recourse whatsoever.
Comparing it to violent rape is pretty cheap but this woman is r-selected (Tinder) turning K, what do you expect in transition?
Seduction and its modern equivalent, rape-by-fraud are considered in many ways practically similar anyway (legally, coercion vitiates consent).
For those who dispute the existence of conditional consent, we have seen it already in the manosphere: consider that consent is always conditional between two parties. As a social contract. For example, a heterosexual man’s consent is conditional on his partner’s biological sex as female. Hence, a deceptive transsexual raped him. If it applies to men in dresses, it applies to men without.
