For those newly introduced to Cthulhu swimming Left concepts.
Have at it, edgelords.
This is not real but give it time.
They didn’t see his porn collection…
The first feminists have a point.
Depends. There’s an event horizon beyond which they’re damned.
No other race willingly freed their slaves.
He’s a sociopath, of course not.

I wish he’d said Cultural Marxism, name the beast and like a demon, you have control of it.
And it’s status signalling, that’s the research term. Virtue signalling was a journalist invention.
Nor does he mention it’s a means for middle class people to judge working class people without looking like raging bigots (because people with a real job don’t give a shit what the Guardian thinks). The culture war is a class war designed to change the poor via pop culture.
They keep losing arguments.
It doesn’t sink in.
They keep losing elections.

I think the anti-speech laws were a turning point here (UK).
The classical liberals realized they were on the side of the censors.

Adults are putting their foot down to entitled little shits and saying you have no high horse. We reject Standpoint Theory. We have the right to laugh at your student opinions. You can’t control us.
Naturally they’re cliche, they must be mainstream and inoffensive or they get kicked out.
Five years and thousands of participants later, we just published the findings in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
We found that American liberals think even WEIRDer, even more unlike the rest of the world, than the average American conservative.
Yes, neolibs are in fact, the closed-minded, stupid bigots.
It’s a cult.
True sarcastic comment from an r-type;
Haidt uses the second half of The Righteous Mind to explicate a bloated theory that liberals concern themselves with only two of these moral foundations, care and fairness, whereas conservatives are concerned with all five. Haidt sees this so-called difference in moral emphasis as the reason conservative arguments resonate so emotionally with the electorate.
The data showed that, yes. That’s why he said it. When you have enough data to write a book I’ll give a damn what you think.

First half of it is non-human species and the second half focuses more on human breeding cycles.
Part 2 (this post) delves into brain maturation, structures with a focus on the limbic system and so on.
If you’re familiar with Anonymous Conservative it draws heavily on his stellar work.
Gee, what a shocker. If people are allowed to enjoy the rewards that accrue from serving the needs of others in the marketplace, they’ll have more incentive to be productive. That sounds like a good system, particularly compared to places where success is penalized.
So, capitalism works. Just read the whole thing.
In other news, social sciences are left-wing biased; (over 90% liberal researchers, ya think???)
Crap article, good links.
Great series, actually;

Many people will be surprised to discover that what has served and is serving as the basis for public school sex education (and is even being used in many Catholic schools) has its roots in scientific fraud. Most of this could be credited to one individual: Alfred C. Kinsey, with the help of his colleagues Wardell B. Pomeroy, Clyde E. Martin, and Paul Gebhard. Their research and studies have undoubtedly shaped current attitudes and perceptions concerning human sexuality. These perceptions have ultimately worked themselves into the current sex education programs.
And how it places women and children in danger;
In Kinsey, Sex and Fraud (1990), Dr. Judith Reisman and Edward Eichel unmasked theKinsey studies as a massive hoax. The medical journal The Lancet reviewed theirfindings and said: “[T]he important allegations from the scientific viewpoint areimperfections in the (Kinsey) sample and unethical, possibly criminal, observations onchildren. … Dr. Judith A. Reisman and her colleagues demolish the foundations of thetwo (Kinsey) reports.”…..

It isn’t all there, but bloody hell.
…It’s a reassuringly simple equation. In fact there are no reliable connections – whether in logic or history – between atheism, science and liberal values….
…Today this a forbidden thought. How could all of humankind not want to be as we imagine ourselves to be? To suggest that large numbers hate and despise values such as toleration and personal autonomy is, for many people nowadays, an intolerable slur on the species. This is, in fact, the quintessential illusion of the ruling liberalism: the belief that all human beings are born freedom-loving and peaceful and become anything else only as a result of oppressive conditioning. …
Because they fail at life on every conceivable level and then make up even more levels to be oppressed on?
….The first question that needs answering is why liberals would need to increase their self-esteem in a way that conservatives do not. The answer is simple: liberals have less self esteem than conservatives to begin with. This is the conclusion of a 2012 paper published in the Journal of Research on Personality. The paper included two studies that found that liberals had lower self esteem than conservatives. The first study’s sample was moderate in size and consisted of college students. The second study made use of decades of data from the General Social Survey. The GSS is a large and highly representative survey that has been administered in the United States for over 40 years. Another paper published in 2014 replicated this finding in two more samples. Thus, the finding that liberals have low self esteem has been replicated several times, including one replication with an extremely high quality sample….
