Rushton And r/K Selection Theory

A reader linked to this article and this article, both of which attempted to argue against Rushton’s analysis on race and r/K Selection Theory:

Rushton’s use of this ‘simple model’—the r/K continuum—and its application to human races are wrong because 1) the three races described are not local populations; 2) the r/K continuum as described by Pianka (1970) is a poor representation of multidimensional ecological processes; and 3) cold weather is normally an agent of r-selection while endemic disease in Africa—as described by Rushton—is an agent of K-selection. Simple models are not always best—especially for organisms as complex as humans—so attempting to reduce complex biological and environmental interactions into a linear continuum is mistaken (Boyce, 1984). The simpler the ecological model, the more complex ecological sophistication is needed to understand and apply said model. So, although Rushton prefers simple models, in this context it is not apt, as complex biological systems interacting with their environments should not be reduced to a ‘simple model’.

If the r/K model were applicable to humans, then Caucasoids and Mongoloids would be r-selected while Negroids would be K-selected. Endemic and infectious disease—stated by Rushton to be an r-selected pressure—is actually a K-selected pressure. So Negroids would have been subjected to K-selected pressures (disease) and r-selected pressures (drought). Conversely, for Mongoloids, they migrated into colder temperatures which act in a density-independent way—hence, cold winters (temperature extremes) are an agent of r-selection.

The author is right about Rushton being too broad. Combining all African and all European populations probably dulls the degree to which certain populations are r and K. Take European royal bloodlines and I will bet you would find a lot of r. Take the most r populations in Africa and you would also see highly obvious differences deviating from normal human behavior. In mixing populations you dull the obviousness of the aberrant behavior of the rabbits. Goal number one should be to get people forced to acknowledge that some humans are exhibiting the r-strategy compared to others. Mixing chimps and bonobos would blunt the obviousness of the behaviors of each subpopulation, and make it harder to force that conclusion on the individuals who will naturally be emotionally resistant to it.

I get the impression the author is a pot-stirrer ginning up debate, which I can respect. But I would counter that I think this argument requires a slightly more complex view on a few points, and it seeks to cite the established literature on r/K a little too much.

Most of the literature on r/K is incredibly shallow in its analyses. I suspect nobody really cared about the theory on an emotional level, so nobody really bothered to look too closely at it, or tried to understand why some arguments would seemingly violate simple common sense. One person would assert things that would make no sense in certain contexts, and nobody would ever try to highlight the complexity required for a fuller understanding of the issue. It is either that, or the more powerful minds gravitated somewhere else in the sciences with more practical application.

As an example, the author cites papers that say drought is an r-selective pressure. Drought can be r or K, depending on the abilities of the organisms confronted with it. Mice will die in a drought, and have short enough life cycles to reproduce in the wet periods following it. So with mice, after the drought, there will be free resources and that makes drought a huge r-selection pressure.

But suppose you have an organism with the intelligence to envision how to survive the drought, and which thinks in terms of long time frames. Now that drought will cull the relatively r-selected individuals who are designed to exploit a glut with no thought of the future, while favoring those who planned for the drought and stockpiled water, or organized a way to acquire it. Is the drought still an r-selective pressure? Being human, with a high IQ and an ability to plan for the future changes a lot of these rules.

On the issue of colder climates being K, the author cites research which makes the case that cold climates kill back the population in the winter, and then allow explosive growth in the summer, and thus are r-selecting.

This will be true in things like insects with short lifespans and no ability to plan for the winter. But in humans, this will favor those who can defer pleasures in the summer, looking forward to the winter and sacrificing by setting aside resources to get themselves through the colder period. It will also favor groups which can work together in pursuit of common goals.

In short, as in the story of the grasshopper and the ant, in humans this will favor the K-selected worldview, with its longer time perspectives, because the K-selected are focused on sacrificing in the short term to survive trials of shortage and harshness in the future.

This will be true of most hardships to some degree. Where they kill back the population massively and randomly, and then allow explosive regrowth, they are r-pressures. But where they are challenges that select for those who can prepare and overcome them, they will tend to favor K, even if they may, strictly by the numbers, appear to be r.

He also speaks of aggression. There the question is, is aggression borne of a competitive psychology that embraces risk innately because it evolved to embrace risk in a competitive environment where resources are scarce, or is aggression an opportunistic seizure of free resources from the weak and helpless.

A criminal who sees an old lady and pushes her to the ground to steal her purse is not the same as a Marine who proceeds to selflessly storm enemy lines and kill fifteen men with his bare hands simply to try and save his fellow Marines in battle. The criminal will seek out the weak and vulnerable to victimize safely for personal gain, while the Marine would find that in conflict with his nature. The Marine will sacrifice himself for his group and nothing more, while the criminal would view that as pointless and stupid. Those are two vastly different forms of aggression.

Aggression and violence can be principled and daring, or opportunistic and cowardly. Each is driven by a different psychology, and you can see this difference extend to sexual drive, promiscuity, and even rearing investments. I think there needs to be a difference cited there. One aggressive psychology is r and one is K. One is designed to take free resources in a world with no consequences, while the other is programmed to fight with anyone to try and get a share of scarce resources, because if they didn’t they would starve.

Then there is disease. Disease can be r or K, depending on epidemiology. If a disease is sexually transmitted, it is going to take out those with a high sex drive, promiscuity, and reduced disgust. That doesn’t means the disease is K-selecting, so much as it preferentially kills those with an r-selected psychology, and fosters the rise of K.

On the other hand, if a disease infects and kills randomly, such as one transmitted by mosquito, then it will open up free resources by killing the population back below the carrying capacity. That will favor the rise of the r-selected psychologies.

These misapprehensions are not the author’s fault. He accurately cites papers on r/K. But this is why I do not spend time on this blog citing the papers on r/K Theory. I have found the vast majority are written by individuals looking to create quick rules of thumb for much more complex variables that can only be looked at in the context of the mechanisms they are a part of. In many cases, I see authors claiming something is always r or K, when the truth is they are more often the opposite for reasons which the authors seem strangely blind to.

r and K are simple adaptation to either free or limited resource availabilities. To understand how the environment affects the evolution of r and K psychologies, you have to understand that those adaptations to free or limited resources imbue certain psychological predispositions. Once imbued, all other selective pressures have to be examined with an eye to how they either confer advantage or disadvantage on those who express those psychological traits.

A sexually transmitted disease that savages a population will open up resource availability and reduce the population well below the carrying capacity, and thus could be mistaken for an r-selecting pressure. But if it wipes out every promiscuous r-strategist, and leaves behind only the monogamous K-strategists, then it is not an r-selective pressure at all. It is favoring the K-psychology, even as from a raw numerical standpoint it would appear an r-pressure. (Indeed, I suspect a golden age in the context of human history will be found to often be such an unusual circumstance, where a population is K-ified, even as it is placed in an r-selected environment of free resource availability. The opposite, an r-ified population placed in a grossly overpopulated environment of shortage will be found to reliably be Hell on earth. Guess which one we have coming.)

The complete absence of that type of detailed understanding of the effects of selective pressures in the literature about r/K Selection Theory is why I don’t waste extensive time here quoting the source texts on the subject. Most seem strangely shallow in their analyses.

I am amused to see the author mention r/K Selection Theory has been linked to ideology, without any mention of where. My greatest hope has always been that r/K Theory would become so ever present in the dialog that nobody would remember where it first arose. When that happens, r/K will be everywhere, and nobody will have any idea who to blame.

Clearly we are already on that path.

Tell others about r/K Theory, because everyone will know it is where ideology came from, even if they have no idea where that idea came from

Democrats Become The Party of Hate

Kind of stunning as it emerges openly:

In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and, most critically, white children, with full dominion over the enslaved and oppressed people of color that were forced to uphold these micro-fiefdoms.

It is no surprise, then, that America’s fascination with the white family unit has gone hand-in-hand with the historical proliferation of white supremacy. After Bacon’s Rebellion, white micro-fieftans thought it necessary to expand the definition of white family to encompass the entirety of white society, so as to coerce the working class to fight amongst itself based on racial lines. Whites are embedded from birth with the sense of common white identity, and this identity conditions them to replicate the white family unit, thus furthering the cycle of white supremacy in America. That is why the white family unit must be destroyed.

Notice how this is a mix of pure hatred for their own, with a hatred for the K-selected style of parenting.

This is the r-strategist’s innate hatred for their own population’s K-strategists, which renders them pre-integrated into foreign populations they may migrate to. It is a vestige of their evolutionary history as migrants, leaving their homelands when shortage hit, and migrating to nearby lands with higher resource availability. Exhibiting this simple urge, they will instantaneously integrate into their new homeland the moment they land. They align with the foreigners, and oppose their own, reflexively.

Everywhere you look, you will see the urges of r/K Theory running the show. Sadly what r/K Theory tells us is the rabbits hate us, and want to kill us. It is why they want to disarm us in violent cesspools of crime, it is why they want to import violent foreigners who will attack us, and it is why they want to free criminals. Every facet of the rabbit’s strategy is designed to kill us.

The question is, can our amygdala spin up to speed and allow us to realize this in time to save ourselves. Once we reach that point, the hate on the left now is going to justify the hate on the right then.

But unlike the hate on the left, the hate on the right is not going to be impotent.

Yemen Has A Cholera Outbreak

The Horsemen travel together:

Seized by violence and teetering on the edge of famine, Yemen is grappling with another danger that threatens to outpace them both: cholera.

“We are now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world,” international health authorities said in a statement Saturday.

Anthony Lake, executive director of UNICEF, and Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, say that “more than 1,300 people have died — one quarter of them children — and the death toll is expected to rise.”

They suspect that is because Yemen now has upwards of 200,000 cases to grapple with, and that number is growing quickly — by a rate of roughly 5,000 cases a day.

“And geographically, it is expanding,” Mohamed El Montassir Hussein, Yemen director for the International Rescue Committee, told NPR’s Jason Beaubien earlier this month. “It’s not a small area. It’s almost the whole country.”

Hussein added:

“There is nowhere in the country you can say, ‘This place is better than another’,” says Hussein. “Every family is suffering from something whether it’s cholera or lack of food, having child soldiers in the family or having someone go join the rebels or the military. There’s been a whole collapse of the social life.”

After more than two years of civil war, Yemen’s health care system is at risk of “complete collapse,” a UNICEF spokesman told Jason.

It is easy when you have a lot of money to keep these things at bay. But imagine what these outbreaks will be like when there is no global public health infrastructure.

What we will see one day is pandemics following the same path K is following now. They will begin in the poorest areas, and then sweep like a wave across the globe, heading toward the richer areas. If we enter Great Depression levels of poverty in the collapse, which we could, then you will see poorer areas experience failures in plumbing and sanitation. When people have to choose between fixing the toilet and starving, they will choose to fix the plumbing later. Detroit will become an American Gaza. Then this will follow.

I still think a catastrophic collapse, followed by a swift pandemic at some point thereafter, and then a return to a Renaissance may be our most likely path. What is weighing the system down now is a lack of sense of community within the nation, a perception that the nation’s greatness is not a priority, and the political left.

Remove the rabbits in the cities swiftly, along with all their low IQ imports, welfare consuming followers, and LGBT acolytes, and the Renaissance would become something you could not stop.

It is not at all unlikely, given current trajectories.

Dems Are Running Intel Ops Against Opposition

Dangerous:

A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.

The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House.

What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters.” But congressional sources says it’s actually an opposition-research group for Democrats, and the founders, who are more political activists than journalists, have a pro-Hillary, anti-Trump agenda.

“These weren’t mercenaries or hired guns,” a congressional source familiar with the dossier probe said. “These guys had a vested personal and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House.”

Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.

More, federal records show a key co-founder and partner in the firm was a Hillary Clinton donor and supporter of her presidential campaign.

Not surprising. Hillary has a fascination with intelligence operations. She was actually running her own parallel intel ops in Libya alongside State, some had speculated looking for Khadafy’s gold on the side to spirit it away to a vault somewhere.

But there are implications to this. If they were hiring spooks, they were running surveillance. You try to never start surveillance after a target thinks surveillance is possible. If you are going to run surveillance, you try to identify targets long before they think anyone would ever look at them, and then you blanket them under surveillance while they go about their activities thinking nobody could possibly be watching.

My guess is Hillary’s spooks and the establishmeent are running constant scans of the alt-right, looking for any possible up and comers to watch, even as they scan the broader business community for anyone who might one day become a billionaire and run for President. If you have a drug addiction or a prostitute problem, my guess is either you will be corruptible and this will help your career as you lateral into the establishment and become a good cuck, or you will be destroyed. If you don’t have anything to be blackmailed over, expect a long hard slog, because the success you see is usually establishment-granted, and not hard-earned.

If I had to guess, this firm is not just stonewalling to cover up the dossier thing. My guess is their records would be a gold mine of surveillance and intelligence operations run against a plethora of right wing figures, probably ranging from Donald Trump’s sons, to obscure bloggers.

The FBI received a copy of the Democrat-funded dossier in August, during the heat of the campaign, and is said to have contracted in October to pay Steele $50,000 to help corroborate the dirt on Trump — a relationship that “raises substantial questions about the independence” of the bureau in investigating Trump, warned Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

Senate investigators are demanding to see records of communications between Fusion GPS and the FBI and the Justice Department, including any contacts with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, now under congressional investigation for possibly obstructing the Hillary Clinton email probe, and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, who is under investigation by the Senate and the Justice inspector general for failing to recuse himself despite financial and political connections to the Clinton campaign through his Democrat activist wife. Senate investigators have singled out McCabe as the FBI official who negotiated with Steele.

Like Fusion GPS, the FBI has failed to cooperate with congressional investigators seeking documents.

So McCabe paid the guy who wrote the dossier to investigate the dossier and judge its truthfulness. How do I get one of these jobs cutting and pasting Wikipedia stuff for $350,000? And then getting another $50,000 to vouch for its authenticity. Talk about free resources.

My guess is Obama’s cronies did a lot of damage at the FBI, which now has to be covered up by the rank and file lest the entire agency be destroyed by it. It does put a different spin on President Trump getting close to Comey, asking him to stay on, waiting until he flew 3,000 miles away and was in the middle of a public appearance, then firing him and raiding his office for records and documents.

There was more going on behind the scenes with Comey than we were told about. He was up to something, and Trump was just one step ahead.

Trump is a sharp operator who knows how to play the game. I imagine the really fascinating story behind his Presidency will be how he kept this massive intelligence machine from destroying him. I’d imagine it was a battle royale.

Canada Apologizes For LGBT Purge

Interesting:

During the Cold War, hundreds of gay men and lesbians in Canada lost government and military jobs because of their sexual orientation after being harassed and interrogated under a national security campaign now dubbed the “LGBT purge”.

In 1986, Simon Thwaites was ordered into a meeting with the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) special investigative unit. Investigators questioned the then-naval officer about his HIV status – positive, but asymptomatic.

Then they asked him to identify friends and other military members who were gay.

After the meeting, Thwaites’ security clearance was downgraded and he was re-assigned to menial tasks. His commanding officer recommended he be let go from the military because of his sexual orientation. In 1989, he was released for medical reasons.

Thwaites is one of hundreds of Canadian military and government employees who were drummed out of careers because of their sexual orientation, but the now 55-year-old’s case is one of the most well-documented.

Notice how different the psychologies were then. Gays triggered amygdalae, and that drove the expulsion of the gays. It wasn’t even up for debate.

What really blows my mind are two things. One, today’s rabbit psychologies cannot fathom how the entire population could have been like that back then, while the population back then cannot fathom how we could be like this today. Both psychologies are completely different, to the point that neither can understand what is just innate to the other.

Two, the changes which were made are just temporary, and with the appropriate environmental exposure to shortage, brains will rewire themselves and the old psychology will return effortlessly. Leftists love to pretend that the path to the Apocalypse is a one way trip, but it is really just a swing on a pendulum.

I am also awed by the fact that in all of this, logic plays absolutely no role at all. Brains are programmed, people act, culture is established, and only after all of that, do individuals try to justify everything they did with a logical explanation.

I am, however struck by the reduced disgust reflex exhibited by the “tolerant” segment of our populations. If a pandemic hits, I expect that will fuel its spread in that segment, as it culls the broader population for those resistant to such degradation of disgust. If a pandemic hits, expect the surviving population to be much less LGBT tolerant in the future.

Illinois Heads To Junk Credit Status

The wave of K is coming:

Illinois is on track to become the first U.S. state to have its credit rating downgraded to “junk” status, which would deepen its multibillion-dollar deficit and cost taxpayers more for years to come.

S&P Global Ratings has warned the agency will likely lower Illinois’ creditworthiness to below investment grade if feuding lawmakers fail to agree on a state budget for a third straight year, increasing the amount the state will have to pay to borrow money for things such as building roads or refinancing existing debt.

The outlook for a deal wasn’t good Saturday, as lawmakers meeting in Springfield for a special legislative session remained deadlocked with the July 1 start of the new fiscal year approaching.

As I look out on the parades of fat, hairy Italian guys in Victorian dresses, and the helpless liberal rabbits complaining we are not importing radical Muslims fast enough, it is apparent that we are setting some sort of record for peak-r.

This level of r is not natural for our species. I do not believe it happens in nature anywhere except where a sole consumer of some plentiful resource like grass is hunted to near extinction. When I look out now, I see humans who are psychologically deformed, like some African woman with a giraffe neck from all the metal rings she has clamped around her neck from the time she was a child.

Though not an expert, I suspect Rome had a similar crippling force. In Rome is was the riches of conquered lands and copious slave labor. In our time, the deforming force that has left our people so crippled psychologically was debt spending.

When Ronald Reagan first decided that we could borrow and spend faster than the Russians, the die were cast, and we were consigned to entering a period of peak r that would be unprecedented. Once rabbitized by that initial fix of free money, we were destined to head back to the credit line like a junkie.

Now K is back, but it doesn’t hit everywhere, all at once. K begins in the poorest areas, and the most rabbitized. As it overtakes those areas, the migrants flee to the remaining bastions of r, and like locusts, they consume every free resource they can, before picking up and fleeing again.

We are now beginning to see this wave sweep over the world. Poor areas like Africa that depend on free resource influxes from wealthier nations see and feel the early K, and their migrants flee. Areas high in r, like Puerto Rico, see it too even though they are not as poor.

Now the K is just arriving in America, and even despite the nation’s wealth, the rabbitized areas are beginning to feel the crunch, in the form of investors being hesitant to lend them money to facilitate their free resource buffet. These resource constrictions will cascade down the food chain, reducing jobs, diminishing spending in stores, driving real estate prices down, and diminishing everyone’s perceptions of their overall wealth. And then one day it will hit, and everybody will stop lending, shutting off the borrowing by force.

I expect that before the collapse we will see the rabbitized areas, panicked with K, threaten the responsible K areas in some fashion, with some consequence like putting all their homeless bums on busses and sending them to the K area. The K areas, still unaffected by the shocking psychological effects of shortage will have to decide, to appease the r areas and avoid the small amount of early conflict, or stand up and endure the minor early conflict, in the hopes of being better off later, in the Apocalypse.

All of it is preparation for the fall of the US Government, which I think will appear somewhat like the collapse of the Soviet Union. Paychecks with either stop, or become worthless, and people will just walk away to find niches where they can exchange value elsewhere.

I suppose r and K are a pendulum, and we have swung quite far toward the r side of things. Still, it is surprising to see just how powerful a little debt spending can be. No nation on earth could have destroyed Ronald Reagan’s America. But give Congress a credit card, and there will literally be almost nothing left.

This whole experience has completely changed how I view warfare. Flooding a competitor with free resources is about the most counter-intuitive means of destruction I could imagine. But who could argue with the results?

Sanders Lawyers Up Over Bank Fraud

Another case that doesn’t surprise:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys, amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms.

Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.

According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.

Sander’s wife could not tolerate thinking about her college not acquiring that extra land. She could destroy the college financially, but her brain is not designed to think about that. All it sees is resources, all it feels is want, and everything else on the cognitive front is just about making it happen.

I saw this in my own narcissist periodically. He would fixate on some super-expensive item, convince himself he needed it, and then hold out his hands, as if helpless, and say, “Well I can’t do X unless I have this, so I have to get it!” He mannerisms were as if explaining that he was helpless in the decision. I’m sure Sander’s wife’s attitude was the same, as she financially destroyed the entire college.

There are people today trying to get monkeys declared human so they can be freed to manage their own affairs. I suspect if the full truth about leftists were ever introduced to courts, every liberal would need a K-selected conservator to run their financial decisions for them, and maybe even to vote for them.

It is worth noting that from a political standpoint, there may be more at play here. The acting FBI director here was McCabe, who is tight with DNC power-player and Governor Terry McAuliffe, who organized the funding of McCabe’s wife’s political run. Both are seamlessly integrated into the establishment. It is not impossible this is the Democrat Party putting Bernie in a corner, and damaging him so he can’t run for office in the future. I’m sure the GOP is wishing they had done this to Trump when they had the chance. Of course they are still trying today.

If I were President Trump, I would appeal to Bernie’s voters with a tweet pointing out that politics today is about the people vs the establishment, and the establishment is trying to take everyone out, including him and Bernie. At the very least he might poison those Bernie voters against the Democrat Party’s next candidate, using raw hatred for the entire DC establishment. And he would soil the Establishment as a whole, and delegitimize their bogus investigation’s targeting his administration.

Houston Has A Rainbow/Pride Police Cruiser

Amazing, the change from the past:

If Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo has anything to say about it, his officers will shine at the head of the city’s Pride Parade.

The department’s new “Pride Car” is ready to go. It’s gassed up. Rainbow decals gleam from every side, saluting Houston’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Acevedo plans to be front and center Saturday and he’s strongly encouraged his top leadership to join him in the march.

“By actually participating … we send a very powerful message that we’re an inclusive department,” he said, “where every segment of society is welcome, is respected, and will be protected by the Houston Police Department.”

But not everyone is ready to join the parade. The prospect of marching in the free-spirited gay-rights celebration has some members of his leadership crying foul, and pictures of the festive cruiser sparked contentious debate on social media from nonplussed naysayers.

“Our duty is to protect and serve, not participate in an event that completely goes against our religious beliefs,” said one commander, who asked not to be identified.

I am very zen about these things now. Fifteen years ago I would have blown a fuse contemplating the stupidity of this, the mark of the decline it represented, and the fact so many others in the nation would happily follow the path of Rome, destroying the US and all its freedoms.

But now I am no more upset about this than I would be about the sky being blue. Like the color of the sky, this merely is, what is.

Here is a picture of what is being celebrated:

I remember the time when everyone would have curled up their lips in revulsion on seeing that picture. I remember when nobody with a brain would have wanted that anywhere near their children. But now public officials celebrate it.

This is a programmed psychological shift. It happens, because the brains in the populace are designed to change this way when resources are free. Now we have made the change from a psychology bent on competing and avoiding the bad, to not caring about the bad, and focusing our striving on the avoidance of conflict and the attainment of maximal social status in the populace.

This Police chief has the best psychology for when times are r. He is avoiding conflict with r’s, in an r-time when no K would ever attack him, and he is doing it flamboyantly to elevate his own social status in a population that is high in r. In a state of nature that would maximize mating opportunities and allow him to achieve a high status that will protect him from conflict even more, all in a time when there is no risk or downside to the behavior.

The amazing thing is how r’s and K’s cannot understand each other. I look at that picture of the two gays, and cannot imagine how the entire populace is not freaked out by that to the point of filling the jails. Rabbits can’t fathom how anyone would oppose it. And as we complete the K-shift, we will watch the populace gradually shift back to a psychology that cannot tolerate it. Our great-grandkids will probably call up these old photos, and look on in astonishment at the bizarre freakshow civilization had once become.

I suspect it will answer a lot of questions they will have about how civil society could possibly have let the horrors that we have to come, come to transpire.

Too Fat To Be A Judge? Regularly Soil Chairs With Diarrhea? No Problemo, Welcome To The Bench Your Honor!

As if this nation hadn’t already descended into Banana Republic status:

The all-Democratic city council in suburban White Plains, N.Y., gave its party chairperson a six-figure judicial seat despite the fact that she is too obese to climb the three steps to the bench.

City judge Elizabeth Shollenberger, who suffers from a digestive disorder and obesity, was appointed to the $175,500-a-year job in December and has since disgusted her colleagues with gastrointestinal issues.

“She would come in and we would see the diarrhea running down her leg and to the floor,” one court worker told the NY Post. “She would soil the chair and then ask for a new one.”

Shollenberger further dismayed her colleagues by displaying “complete arrogance” following the embarrassing incidents.

“She would just say, ‘There is a mess over there. I think someone should clean it up,’” a court source told the NY Post…

Shollenberger, 61, put her $65,000 in annual health benefits to work almost immediately, taking the first of several health leaves only one week after beginning her term…

The Office of Court Administration determined she was “unable to perform her job,” after receiving multiple reports regarding her incontinence, a high-level court source told the NY Post.

Shollenberger has been prohibited from receiving any new cases and her current case load has been distributed to other jurists but she wishes to continue serving in her current post.

There are very few bigotries I indulge. I try to judge everyone as I meet them. But I do judge morbidly obese women. There is something in their psychology driving that need to eat to the point it impacts their ability to move. It is a compulsive dissatisfaction in their psychological makeup that does not bode well for those poor souls who fall into their orbit. Where this judge points out her diarrhea, and demands somebody clean it up is a classic narcissist game of screwing over someone else. Well, if I’m miserable, now you are going to be miserable too!

Notice however, where resources are this free, even the woman too fat to move with diarrhea streaming down her leg into a puddle on the floor can attain high social status and a position of authority. If K-selection hit, she wouldn’t last two minutes, but in r she thrives. This is the nightmare of r-selection.

Oddly enough, rabbit utopia New York doesn’t even demand fat judges show up for work:

A New York judge is raking in $175,500-a-year in her state-taxpayer-funded salary — for sitting in jail.

Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio has been locked up since June 5 for violating her parole for a DWI conviction…

Ironically state law protects Astacio despite her behavior.

The same law allows judges to take unlimited sick leave. The lax policy has benefited at least two severely overweight judges. Daniel J. McCullough of Queens was finally forced into retirement earlier this week after failing to show up to work for over three years because his morbid obesity kept him in the hospital and rehab center. All the while he was collecting a $193,000 salary and will still retire with a hefty pension.

Another judge, Elizabeth Shollenberger of suburban White Plains, landed a $175,500 seat— but her 400-pound weight prevented her from being able to climb the three steps to her courtroom bench. She’s on a fully paid, indefinite medical leave.

This can only happen when resources are so free they can be wasted willy-nilly without anyone complaining or doing anything about it. It just isn’t an amygdala-priority for anyone right now. Given this level of resource availability, to a degree we could never have imagined in the natural world, is it any surprise the human machines trying to adapt to it are physically breaking down, and society is following a similar path?

We are designed for harshness and shortage. Harshness and shortage are an integral part of the machine that is supposed to mold us into our majestic form. Absent it, we are like melted plastic, splattered on the floor without a mold to give it form or purpose.

And as we go, so too do the civilizations which were keeping us from being molded properly. The harshness we need is going to return because that is how the world is designed.

Tell others about r/K Theory, because there is enough disgusting shit in courthouses already
