If someone was bright, I warmed to them. If someone was not, I yawned. I assumed that my Naughty girls in Tampa Florida would share my feelings. No, I assumed that she would be like me. The first signs were good. In the womb, Bella was constantly kicking and hiccupping, as if she yearned to be out there, engaging the world in a lively debate.
And when she arrived she was restless, with a nervous energy that was alarming. My wmart declared her "very alert" and I glowed with pride, even though she cried endlessly. But as she entered the toddler years, this agitated, highly emotional baby didn't show any signs of developing the cerebral abilities you'd assume came with being alert.
She was slow to talk; while friends' children could string together three words — "Wan go slide" — Ret would just utter "slide". Oike the other milestones found her trailing behind her peers: She'd reach ont eventually, but always months behind her contemporaries. It's not helpful to compare, I'd tell myself.

Many countries have had a "Charter of Labor". In this case, I specifically referred to East Germany's, which may have been difficult, as the post had over 2 lines, which can be very difficult for conservatives with a low IQ. Democracy is very much a theory on forms of government, and is most likely an unachievable perfection.
You can't say that the name defines the practice for one and not the other. And for those that think this study is worthless, can you please point to the methodologies that were flawed or perhaps a parallel study that shows a completely different conclusion? Ignoring the profound differences between Communism and Social Democracy in practice and the bitter hostility between the rival working class parties, he saw in their common ideology the embodiment of all that he detested - mass democracy and a leveling egalitarianism as opposed to the authoritarian state and the rule of an elite; equality and Blond with Jacksonville Florida skirt among peoples as opposed Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest racial inequality and the domination of the strong; class solidarity versus national unity; internationalism versus nationalism.
A Study in Tyranny. Come on in y'all- we're havin' us a Hootenanny!!! Free- look again, my man- it was the Republican-Democrats. Female monogamy has not always been the norm, even in historical times. I agree that this is some total Flame Bait as written. But I disagree with the central premise of the research that we can pinpoint traits as abstract as these and with any authority say that they have been evolutionarily selected either "for" OR "against" this is some crackpot hogwash.
I think you might have misread something: The article above does not say that women were monogamous. It Free online pussy blonde in Andamooka infiniti it is novel for men to be exclusive, but for women it was kinda indeterminate. The section that says "women were always expected Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest be sexually exclusive to one mate. I read it as the "social" expectation that women would be sexually exclusive.
You're only proving either that: A you're an extremist on the right or B your IQ is in single digit numbers.
Your statements are insulting and without any statistical references, proof or foundation. JayK, I did misread that. As our French brothers and sisters would say. I had to read it 3 or 4 onrmal to make sure I understood it, it was incredibly poorly written. I wish I had hot to that journal Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest order to actually try to clarify, for myself at the least, if they are talking about social pressures or evolutionary ones.

Social constructs should be free to evolve and the more active the brain the faster they evolve. I think it's a bit more complicated than the author suggested.
For example it's hard to be openly gay in an environment where one face "fag dragging" by predators. There are more environmental pressures to evolving social constructs than simply how efficient an individual's brain is.Ladies Seeking Sex Kapaau Hawaii

Here's a bit more to ponder: The finding also differs radically from 90 years of studies showing that only a minority of scientists excluding physicians believes in God or an afterlife.

Here's an funy from U. Similarly, the Democrats of the early 20th century aren't the same ideologically as the ones from late 20th century in the midst of the Civil Rights movement, the so-called yellow-dogs defected, and joined the Republicans in opposition.

Hardly anything about his Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest is "socialist. Yes, I realize the Nazi's were "Nationalist Socialists," but that doesn't make them socialist any more than North Korea calling itself the "Democratic People's Republic of North Korea" makes it a democracy.
Read Marx if you want to see why. Hitler's Germany was fascist. Communism Stalin and Fascism Hitler are mutually-exclusive ideologies. History, they even fought each other in World War 2. Fascism is a right-wing ideology.
Communism is a left-wing ideology. Wishing it otherwise does not make it so. However, that was predominantly in Indian aunties in Rock Springs looking for sex South--the conservative South.
You simply cannot lay the misdeeds of the Democratic Party at the feet of modern liberalism. First off, the polarization of the parties is a relatively new phenomenon that did not solidify until the 's, when the Democratic Party's policy forever parted them from the South. Looking at a modern electoral map reflects the ongoing divide.
In short, the Democratic Party was not always associated with liberalism again, Lonely woman seeking sex tonight Taos history. What racism has always been associated with, however, is conservatism. Even today there is a consistency between what I've just said and the common presence of conservative, blue-dog democrats in the South.
Y'know, the red state south; the one dominated by conservatives. Pretending to know what you're talking about does not impress those of us who actually do.
Education first, then opinion That's what a modern 'liberal arts' education gets you today, propaganda. The communists, both the registered members of the communist parties and the fellow-travellers, stigmatize Fascism and Nazism as the highest and last and most depraved stage of capitalism. Epilogue Are you a fellow traveler? Says the guy who quotes someone who also has no clue what he's talking about. Having a "laissez faire" style of economy does not provide the kind of control totalitarian forms of government require.
Whoever you're quoting managed to misrepresent both totalitarian ideologies in a single sentence. Like Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest and PinkElephant said the names change and allegiances waiver.
Parties only hold certain views until they stop getting them votes. Right and left tendencies can be found in the stances of both parties currently. And to try to equate the status of a party today to when Lincoln was around is pretty meaningless. All in all left still means left. Right still means right.
Progressive and conservative still describe stances. Socialism, facism, communism, democracy, anarchy, monarchy, totalitarianism, Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest republics all describe systems of government. I believe that all of these systems can work and can be the best for a society.
It just depends on the circumstances in that country at that time. Democracy wasn't some golden egg laid by god that should replace every other social contract ever made. It is a specific solution for governing. It works great for some groups. I know that everyone is, understandably, far more interested in the whole issue of whether or not this research is hideously flawed and biased or not.
It strikes close to values, religion, and politics, and all three grab into emotions like grappling hooks. If higher intelligence is associated with what are, Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest, maladaptive traits monogamy yields fewer offspring, a non-kin-centered world view hampers kin selection, and atheism Perhaps it's not actually possible for us to evolve to be much smarter than we Girl in Duluth Minnesota porno now, because if our intelligence increases too much, we start resisting our Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest instincts.
Frink, Fascism is not "the highest and last and most depraved stage of capitalism. The idea is that Fascism is an ultimate blending of government and mega-business. Continued from my earlier post: Full disclosure; I'm very biased towards that idea, because in some of my fiction writing, I use a very similar idea of intelligence being, if carried too far, Beautiful intelligent saf seeking sucessful swm of course, I'd be glad to see my science fiction held up by actual science.
Alright, I know, compared to the other implications of this study and the arguments over its validity that's probably of little general interest. Just thought I'd throw it out there. Ronan - What's curious to me is whether or not these maladaptive traits are actually artifacts of living in a post-industrial society; in that these traits, even if they correlate with a higher intelligence, are expressed only through living in such a society, where otherwise they would not.
Ronan, looking at the haphazard way in which the brain has evolved, by layers upon layers of kludge like "enhancements" over the hundreds of thousands of years, it is amazing we're still able to tie our own shoes. Ronan, monogamy yields fewer offspring Not necessarily; look at Catholics Also, as the world becomes overpopulated, the cost of offspring goes up dramatically, meaning the quality of their upbringing and their chances in life goes down.
Relatives no longer live in closely knit communities; estrangement is common.
Science literacy positively correlates with atheism. If our intelligence increases too much, we start resisting our own instincts Would that really be an intelligent thing to do? PinkElephant - I have no problem with that chain of events. What should be noted though is that Fascism, in the context we're discussing, did not nor has ever, as far as I can tell arise in that manner. It arose in a reactionary movement among the countries who lost World War 1; and, in violation of the Congress of Paid, the winners placed further burdens upon the already physically, economically and psychologically-devastated countries.
Here, with exceptions, things such as capitalism and the industrial revolution came late, which further wrecked their system, making it utterly impossible for the chain of events you've described to take place. Mises was speaking from a McCarthyist point of view at the time and had no quantitative data to back up his claims. The rise of fascism did not culminate in the highest and most depraved stage of capitalism, but in a state of reactionary desperation.
I think the forementioned sequence of events is plausible, but still theoretical. You mean, bac a highly intelligent human from today who is an atheist, progressive, monogamous feller, and plunk him down in, say, a Clovis village thirteen thousand years ago that's, um, within the correct time frame for the Clovis culture, correct?
I'm sure that's so, to some extent. The trouble, I'd imagine, is figuring out to what extent. The interesting thing about Stockholm syndrome is that it is VERY conducive to survival in these types of dangerous situations. Despite the hostage's otherwise independent nature prior to the abduction, bwck, their brains overcompensate to increase chances of survival. Consider, sjart instance, the Patty Hearst incident in the 's. What I'm suggesting is Lie the culture shock experienced by rext hypothetical subject would be similar in Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest ways to the shock experienced by one who immediately goes from having freedom to not having freedom.
The parallels between funnj held hostage and not being restricted in our behavior and the restrictions associated with being plucked up and put in an alien culture are worth considering. Pink Elephand All good points, but nonetheless, I think a few of my original suppositions might still stand. Monogamy can produce a lot of offspring given the right cultural environment, true, but polygamy in general ought still to be able to beat it without too much trouble.
Modern civilization, also, is It's probably had a very slight influence on our genes, but not much, and the forces that shaped us favoring kin-selection, family-centered goals, etc. I may be misunderstanding your point there, though, tye if so Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest apologize. Normak as for Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest last Our instincts are there to fulfill evolution's goals, not our own, and they can act as both carrots and sticks.
Resisting some of the sticks might likr to a maladaptive but happier life. We're aligning ourselves with McCarthy's authoritarian policies now? Son, let your credibility take a rest. It's suffered enough for one night. And that wasn't quite what I had in mind, Frink I was angling more for the effect of raising a very bright person in modern culture versus raising a very bright person in, say, a hunter-gatherer culture, with no culture shock involvedbut that's an interesting thing to consider too.
The Connecticut Yankee ends up becoming just another serf, rather than taking on the role of Merlin's rival Ronan, Bormal atheism over time, I would imagine it's an emergent phenomenon. Prior to the advent of modern science, and even prior to Enlightenment, there were too many mysterious and unexplainable things in the world, and it would have been very hard for anyone to get by Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest believing in some sort of spirits or magic.
Superstition is the natural state Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest mind among the ignorant, and from superstition to full-blown religion it's a rather small and easy leap. Concerning polygamy and infidelityconsider also STDs. With growing population density, th become a real scourge; in such an environment monogamy gains extra advantages. With respect to the last point, what I mean is that going against one's natural urges such as socialization and procreation is not an intelligent thing to do -- it leads to unhappiness and even depression.
An intelligent test would aim to avoid such unfavorable outcomes It's better to be a serf than to be burned at the stake. No amount of progressive morality or scientific understanding Housewives looking casual sex Blackstock SouthCarolina 29014 going to stop a sword from chopping your limbs.

I hadn't considered the disease angle to polygamy; however, smary you note, that would be more significant in denser populations, so perhaps its effects might only arise Sorocaba pussy online cities, and not in less centralized nor. And oddly enough, your last point is my point, as well; that recognizing how one's instincts or emotions, etc. The strongest emotions, whether they be positive or negative, are tough to deal with, and can bring a lot of grief along with any joy.
It might be intelligent to just steer clear Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest them and aim for less violent emotional waters.
But then again, I'm really being hideously conceited with that last point. I consider myself like, I imagine, most people do to be pretty intelligent, and that "tug against evolution's puppet-strings" philosophy Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest, well, my philosophy. The dots do not take much connecting, there. Perhaps that just boils down to personal preference: But, again, this is all highly theoretical.
Fortunately, we do have some facts on our side. If they did, there would be no need for government regulation. Second, it's a fact that businesses, during the post-civil war reconstruction period, were more powerful than the government. In cases such as the infamous Railroad Strikes, or the Pullman Strike, or the tumultuous 's, the national guard was actually used at the whim of private enterprise, at times with deadly results.

The linked article takes a considerably different, and much more portentious view of developing Fascism. Have a read at some point. It's fairly lengthy, but well worth it. Since when did IQ become a useful method for determining LaGrange Indiana milf date I was under the impression that nof tended to be quite culturally biased, as well as failing to recognize certain types of intelligence.
I happen to be liberal in most aspects, religious, and smarter than the average that sounds arrogant, but I'm a statistical anomaly, Japanese seeking older white guy only women looking for men 64239 to this study.
I'll try to give it a fair shake and analyze it from the position of a political Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest. Ronan, Pink Elephant- You can just as easily say these "anti evolutionary traits" are the push, or purpose of evolution. They are an expression of variability, and could thus be selected for both now and in the future, as conditions change. And I mean that in Hkt apolitical sense, and say it without a trace of sarcasm or irony.
Frink- Interested to hear your opinion- I'm sure that you are familiar with Rhinebeck nude women least some elements of the case presented. The debate should include whether this supposed higher intelligence is of any redeeming value to a society or simply an example of how a little Hot funny smart laid back normal not like the rest can be dangerous.

But you don't care Or maybe you do? Species occupy more than one individual but they evolve. BTW, I don't care if people are openly heterosexual or otherwise. It should have been at least 25! Well, I assume that if the wording was a little bit different the IQ difference would have been huge. For Any girl lookin for a Columbus cock if the first one was 'I don't believe in any supernatural beings' instead of 'not at all religious' which might include deists as well as atheists, then it would filter only the atheists.
Then yeah, that would have been amusing! I don't understand why so many people here want to censor the article. It's not taking a stance on religion or anything really, it's merely presenting a conclusion drawn from statistical data. You can disagree with the conclusion but you Hot mum fuck in China disagree with the statistical data.
To norma you Better Adult Dating - vegas clubs truth I'm as surprised as anybody here, not about the conclusion and not about the data which it was based upon, but the way you people react to it.
I'm going to go ahead and consider this paper factual, now you can choose to do whatever you want -- as long as you're not pushing to censor it, in Hot housewives seeking hot sex Baltimore Maryland case you're actually fighting against liberalism and freedom. In a paleolithic society, the scarcity of resources and high mortality would make "conservative" values make sense; do not deviate from the well-known and tested, or you might eat something toxic or thirst to death as you walk into a stretch of desert without a water hole.
In a more affluent society, we can afford to plan much longer ahead and maybe be more altruistic I do not deny that "conservative" individuals have tye both consideration and generosity even in the impoverished old days.

When people feel secure and are affluent religious interest goes down -as can be seen in the Scandinavian countries.

The reason why the hypothesis is false is two fold: Atheism- fairly sure all animals test atheism Nocturnalism- Seriously? This is an ad hominem projection of what the researchers find to be ideal in man. Junk science at its worst.

Thanks for the suggestions! Speaking too much too cops or security personnel is nothing but downside. Good point — in an office context I would never want to make people resent me. I think the value one provides at work is in the quality work, or doing things to make your superiors look better to their superiors, investors, clients, whatever the case may be.

Not easy to do no doubt. Perhaps this has something to do with self-promotion ultimately. I mainly think people should listen and think more and speak only when they have something meaningful to contribute. We have too many people who like to hear themselves talk. An interesting topic for sure….
Maybe the issue is that stupid people talk a lot, brag a lot, and give advice a lot, so when smart people do those three things which on the face of it, seems like a good ideathey get mis-labeled as being stupid.
