What are r and K?
This site asks for your help in promoting the idea that our political ideologies evolved from r/K Selection Theory in evolutionary ecology.
In evolutionary ecology, r and K describe two fundamental psychologies seen in nature, designed to adapt an organism to either a glut or a shortage.
Rabbits are r-strategists, designed to exploit free resources, like fields of grass. The five psychological traits inherent to the r-strategy are docility/conflict-avoidance, promiscuity/non-monogamy, single-mom'ing, early sexualization of young, and no loyalty to a competitive in-group. All help this glut-exploiting psychology to out-reproduce everyone else by avoiding danger, mating widely starting young, booting offspring early to mate again, and never risking for others .
Wolves are K-strategists, designed for when resources are too limited for everyone to survive. The five traits of a K-strategist are competitiveness/ aggressiveness/protectiveness, competitive mate monopolization/ monogamy, high-investment two-parent rearing, only mating when mature, and high loyalty to one's competitive in-group. All these traits either help you win when you have to fight, or produce and protect fitter offspring, so they will win in a dangerous world that culls the weak.
Our political battle is one between a glut-exploiting r-reproductive strategy of rabbits designed to produce raw numbers and a shortage-surviving K-reproductive strategy of wolves designed to produce quality. The swings between conservatism and liberalism at the societal level are not the result of logical argument or reasoned debate. They are the result of psychological shifts produced by perceptions of K-stimuli in the environment such as conflict, danger, and shortage, or r-stimuli, such as safety, pleasure, and abundance. These perceptions trigger ancient mechanisms in the brain that adapt psychology to environment. All of politics and much of history are r vs K.

As you can see by the shocked 5 star reviews on the book's Amazon page linked below, this idea, and the science behind it, blows people away. This idea's beneficial effects on our governance and our freedom cannot be overestimated, if it can only spread.

A Plea for Virality
If you are here, you see the potential significance of the r/K heuristic, and how it might alter the political dialog forever.
This research has taken years to amass. I hoped it could be spread solely by this website, but it cannot. For it to go viral and spread, each reader must tell two other people about this, who themselves will tell two other people. This will not go viral, without the reader's help.
By all means, read and enjoy this site. But also, please consider telling others about what you see here, give them the web address - and tell them you believe it is correct. If you validate this yourself, it will create the Lemming Effect in virality. Others will tend to adopt it, on your authority, and spread it themselves. It only takes 10% of a population to believe something ardently, for the rest of the population to accept it as common knowledge. We can get there - easily.
The freedom you protect will benefit all of us - but especially our future generations.
