All I have to say to this is, hahahahah!

DailyWire



An academic study from researchers at Brunel University London assessed 171 men, looking at their height, weight, overall physical strength and bicep circumference, along with their views on redistribution of wealth and income inequality. The study, published in the Evolution and Human Behavior journal, ​found that weaker men were more likely to favor socialist policies than stronger men. Exhibit A:


Science duh! I would like to start by saying this is a very honest and accurate assessment, very scientifically done and peer reviewed by everyone in the world. Men who adhere to socialist ideology are weak sissy boys. It's not me saying it it's the scientist!

All things are possible when you can control your testosterone.

So, are you really surprised by this.

Additionally, 171 men is not a huge sample base and secondly, this is in London. Do you think it applies to all men worldwide.

Just another small sample study.

Study: People unfamiliar with the scientific method are more likely to peddle corporate sponsored experiments.

The real question is: who is stronger out of a weak man & a strong transvestite? Important part of the survey/experiment because apparently sexual orientation beyond the 2 base genders and political persuasion go hand-in-hand.

They needed a study to realise this?

It seems intuitive.

There's long been a correlation between political persuasion and levels of education. Generally, the higher the education level, the more likely people will lean left. So the study could be correct as higher levels of education lead to more sedentary, non-physical jobs. Conversely those who leave school with few qualifications tend to lean right.

Now, if I was like the OP, I could go off and say Lefties are smarter and Righties are doodoo heads. But we're adults and there could be any number of factors running parallel with education. Age is a factor too. Bicep size isn't all determined by strength or fitness when we get older. Upper arms can be larger even when the actual bicep/tricep muscles are shrinking. Yet the older we get, the more we lean right. The Marxist agitator at 18 is likely to be a moderate centrist at 60. Makes me wonder what becomes of 18 year old neo-Nazis. Do they move left with age?

Well "du'h"

Did we need a 'study' for this? Hopefully they do a study to see if water is wet, or maybe one to see if muslims hate gays.

Beliefs play a large part. While we are used to thinking of beliefs in terms of religion, political POVs are very similar.

You are indoctrinated from an early age by your parents and end up stuck with those beliefs.

Later in life, you may well throw out those beliefs and take new ones.

Quite frankly, most people do not understand the words they use.

Communism is my favorite for no one understanding what it was supposed to be. The only real communists are ant nests and even those could also be called living by the rule of a queen.

There are only three ways to rule over humans. Every system that has ever been uses a mix of the three base types. Once you understand this truth, everything that happens politically becomes a trifle funny.

The truth is to look for who wants the power. I would prefer He-man myself although his sister is pretty and pretty good.

Left from what? The Reich was a "socialist paradise". I mean, they WERE the "National Socialists".

I think the only reason folks think neo-nazi's are right winged, is because of the frequency of the pejorative term being used against them.

Everything was for the glory of the Fatherland... peoples talents... their offspring... everyone worked together for the Fatherlands well being. They certainly managed the language used very carefully... after all... "the communists" were the arch enemies of the Reich. But it was collectivism, nonetheless... with a healthy serving of totalitarianism.

I'm not sure I agree with this "study". I know a few dainty women that aren't socialist. Since this was a "educated".. "Research Study" I'd need to first know what their definition of "Men" is. Though I can see how their hypothesis has some theoretical merit. But then again, physically fit may just mean vanity with lazy tendency... Which is one of the most worthless "men" you could have in your squad. "Physically" weak with know how and will power and a will to work? That's a keeper! This study is like saying, educated people know more. No, they just know what they were taught. Kind of like domesticated pets.

Stronger males foster the mentality of being self reliant because it is simply at the core of who we are. It's the primal essence.

Those that can...DO. Those that can't...must rely upon others.

I bet plenty of liberals opened this thread and felt threatened.

You do look very independent...like a man who knows what he wants, and how to get it!

Looks, action and ideology, are different things. I've seen and been around some handsome and buff US. marines, female and male. That couldn't work themselves out of a wet paper bag. Primal essence sounds like a soda product to me. I've seen fat and skinny men out work, Golds Gym commandos. It's a BS study. Click bait.

Yo Murph...you're proving my very point of primal essence. It's either in a person's DNA or it's not. And by stronger it doesn't necessarily have to be physically. That study could have broadened it a bit more to include some different criteria.
