I found this
extremely interesting, with a simple, yet profound logic.
I tend to agree. Liberals ARE more intelligent than conservatives, as a general trend. The article clearly explains why Conservatives and Liberals
behave the way they do. It espouses the theory that many people hold dear that it is a persons intelligence level that infers their behaviour and
life-view, rather than the other way around. This makes perfect sense.
Incidentally, this finding substantiates one of the persistent complaints among conservatives. Conservatives often complain that liberals control
the media or the show business or the academia or some other social institutions. The Hypothesis explains why conservatives are correct in their
complaints. Liberals do control the media, or the show business, or the academia, among other institutions, because, apart from a few areas in life
(such as business) where countervailing circumstances may prevail, liberals control all institutions. They control the institutions because liberals
are on average more intelligent than conservatives and thus they are more likely to attain the highest status in any area of (evolutionarily novel)
I loved the last paragraph, which I have posted here for you all to see. There are too many whiny ATS'ers that bitch and moan about the evil 'Liberal
Media'. It doesn't surprise me, it's because that media force you're complaining about is smarter than you, and it doesn't sit well.
This graph made giggle somewhat as well. Bring on the flamethrowers!!!
