The idea is completely wrong,
OK then I guess that's it for this discussion then isn't it.
because it leads a racist division between classes.. that the establishment are part of a non-human race of sorts, so... "hey!let's send
them to death camps, why not?"
I made no such assertion.
What the study referenced in the OP concludes is that a hereditary, genetic difference causes approximately 10% of people in society to have a
physically smaller section of the brain (called the amygdala) which is linked to psychopathic behavior.
An interesting characteristic of these people is that they are particularly attracted to positions of power.
The research DOES NOT therefore conclude that everyone in a position of power is a psychopath, only that people with the smaller amygdala are
statistically over-represented in these positions.
Ironically, the characteristic lack of empathy of psychopaths is probably necessary to defend a statement such as "hey!let's send them to death
camps, why not?"
. So the 90% of people who do not fall under the category of "psychopath" are extremely unlikely to be capable of following
through on such an extremely violent view.
This is baloney until you get me a real proof that these poeple really have reptilian features.
As I stated in the OP, the link with the reptilian feature was a stretch at best, but it made reference to the triune brain theory which separates the
more instinct driven functions to a part of the brain labeled the "reptilian brain". Because the Amygdala is part of the "mammalian brain", I
made, (what I thought at the time) to be an interesting correlation with science and a somewhat far-flung idea espoused by David Icke.
