Nihilism, Futurist Traditionalism and Conservationism

The genius of tradition

25 01 12 - 21:43

Because we are afraid of evolution itself, which changes us as we are, we like to think it's over and we've moved on to the quest for Utopia through politically correct behavior.

This requires we write off the past as ignorant, stupid and wrong, and to make fun of tradition as a pointless and hateful exercise.

Then again, as time passes and our liberal/democratic/consumerist/technological/capitalist/socialist methods fail, we're starting to see the wisdom of tradition.

In cultures that permit men to take multiple wives, the intra-sexual competition that occurs causes greater levels of crime, violence, poverty and gender inequality than in societies that institutionalize and practice monogamous marriage.

"The emergence of monogamous marriage is also puzzling for some as the very people who most benefit from polygyny – wealthy, powerful men – were best positioned to reject it," says Henrich, lead author of the study that is published today in the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. "Our findings suggest that that institutionalized monogamous marriage provides greater net benefits for society at large by reducing social problems that are inherent in polygynous societies."

Considered the most comprehensive study of polygamy and the institution of marriage, the study finds significantly higher levels rape, kidnapping, murder, assault, robbery and fraud in polygynous cultures. According to Henrich and his research team, which included Profs. Robert Boyd (UCLA) and Peter Richerson (UC Davis), these crimes are caused primarily by pools of unmarried men, which result when other men take multiple wives. - PhysOrg

What, how could that be? It's like we're denying free will.

Your genes could be a strong predictor of whether you stray into a life of crime, according to a research paper co-written by UT Dallas criminologist Dr. J.C. Barnes.

The study focused on whether genes are likely to cause a person to become a life-course persistent offender, which is characterized by antisocial behavior during childhood that can later progress to violent or serious criminal acts later in life.

The framework for the research was based on the developmental taxonomy of anti-social behavior, a theory derived by Dr. Terri Moffitt, who identified three groups, or pathways, found in the population: life-course persistent offenders, adolescent-limited offenders and abstainers. Moffitt suggested that environmental, biological and, perhaps, genetic factors could cause a person to fall into one of the paths. - Science Daily

Oh wait. So this whole utilitarian, liberal-democratic, quasi-Romantic notion of free will and choice is bogus? We're just piles of nerves, acting out our genes? -- well, it's not quite that bad. But neither do we have absolute choice.

Modernity has drifted away from tradition for the selfish motivations of our worst people. End the drift -- turn back toward sanity.

Lamarckian evolution was disproved long ago.
"Because we are afraid of evolution itself, which changes us as we are"

You do realize that evolution never changes a single individual, right?

More than that, it takes eons to make a noticeable change in a species. Not a generation or two, not even a couple thousand years. Tens and tens of thousands. Lamarckian evolution was disproved long ago. - 26-01-’12 09:54

And that's why we must preserve our superior white race and kick out all non-Whites from our nations. power bottom twink - 26-01-’12 13:46

@Hay Sous
Not all pre-Christian societies were polygamous. Nor are all Christian societies monogamous. You are making overly general statements. @Hay Sous - 26-01-’12 19:17
