Liberals really are different. I see it right on this forum where everyone claims to be "MAGA." Some people are more liberal than others.

In 2014, scientists at Virgina Tech proved why. They put test subjects inside an MRI, showed them a set of pictures that varied from very disgusting to very nice and measured the reaction. Then they gave the same people a written questionnaire to see whether they were socially liberal or conservative,

They found that over 95% of the time, Conservatives were more disgusted over certain images than Liberals.

Read the article (PDF file) here Liberal or conservative? Reactions to disgust are a dead giveaway

Mark Dice just posted a video on this research Science Proves What We Suspected Was True

So what? What can we do with this?

I believe that VOTING must be EXCLUSIONARY . . . . . restricted to a certain group of Americans.

Originally, only white, male, property owners could vote. Even John Adams thought this was an excellent idea. Read his letter from May 1776. John Adams to James Sullivan

In Ancient Athens, only free men who had completed their military service were allowed to vote on any legislation. This meant that only about 20% of the population were actually able to vote. SOURCE

Plato opposed democracy on the grounds that eventually, the poor will demand more and more wealth redistribution. Good summary of his beliefs here. Plato and the Disaster of Democracy


In the future, voting should be limited to those who

  • Perform some form of national service for a period of time

  • Have been trained in the duties of citizenship (just like we train people to drive a car today)

  • Pass psychological screening

  • Free of mental illness or criminal behavior

  • Not belong to groups on our "**** - list" . . . . like sorry, if you belong to Antifa, BLM, the JDL, La Raza, CAIR, any LGBT group, etc, etc . . . . you can't be a citizen

  • Own property and pay taxes

Only citizens can run for public office. So, sorry . . . . Biden, Bill & Hillary Clinton, Obama, Romney, Cheney, AOC, Ilhan Omar, etc . . . . those scumbags would never pass the psych screening and would never be elected

Why Are Atheists Generally Smarter Than Religious People?​

People who are able to rise above their instincts are likely better problem-solvers.

For instance, a 2012 study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology showed that college students often get logical answers wrong but don’t realize it. This so-called “bias blind spot” happens when people cannot detect bias, or flaws, within their own thinking. “If anything, a larger bias blind spot was associated with higher cognitive ability,” the researchers of the 2012 study wrote in the abstract.

I don't buy it. "Religion is an instinct?" I understand the hypothesis but it's too broad.

Exceptions are what kill a theory. Newton was extremely intelligent and devout. Einstein may not have been religious but he often said he was not an atheist, During the Middle Ages, all highly intelligent people were religious or claimed to be.

Then you have other exceptions like the Mormons.

Finally, as far as the ancient Greeks . . . . Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were all religious. Pythagoras was a religious leader and some suspect that he may have been Jesus Christ. Plutarch was religious. The Iliad and the Odyssey were full of religious worship and interaction.

Most of the Romans were also religious.

Religion the most widespread and harmful form of superstition...

Basic instinct​


The religion-is-an-instinct theory is a modified version of an idea developed by Satoshi Kanazawa, an evolutionary psychologist at the London School of Economics, who was not involved in the new study.

Called the Savanna-IQ Interaction Hypothesis, Kanazawa's theory attempts to explain the differences in the behavior and attitudes between intelligent and less intelligent people, said Nathan Cofnas, who is pursuing a doctorate in philosophy at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom this fall. Cofnas, who specializes in the philosophy of science, was not involved with the new study.

The hypothesis is based on two assumptions, Cofnas told Live Science in an email.

"First, that we are psychologically adapted to solve recurrent problems faced by our hunter-gatherer ancestors in the African savanna," Cofnas said. "Second, that 'general intelligence' (what is measured by IQ tests) evolved to help us deal with nonrecurrent problems for which we had no evolved psychological adaptations."

The assumptions imply that "intelligent people should be better than unintelligent people at dealing with 'evolutionary novelty' — situations and entities that did not exist in the ancestral environment," Cofnas said.

Dutton and Van der Linden modified this theory, suggesting that evolutionary novelty is something that opposes evolved instincts.

Psychologist Fired For “Why Black Women Are Unattractive” Study

Satoshi Kanazawa, the psychologist who caused a great deal of controversy with his article on why African American women are unattractive has been fired from Psychology Today, where the article first surfaced.

I guess he's not so stupid after all. :)
