I have some taboo but logical questions. Why do liberals and politically correct people always seem to deny the genetic factor in human behavior, even
though science says that 50 percent of our personality/behavior comes from our genes? What drives them to be so irrationally against the science of
genes and their effect?
Why do they have a need to believe that everything is a social construct conditioned by culture and that we are all born a blank slate? Some even go
so far as saying that there are no differences between men and women other than cultural and biological differences, which is totally insane. It
doesn't make sense. What's their motivation for denying something so obvious?
Whenever I ask them the following, they get stumped:
1. If all our behaviors are conditioned, why was I born with a fear of heights ever since I was a toddler? Who or what conditioned me to have a fear
2. Why is there a proven correlation between race and IQ that transcends environment or upbringing? See here:
3. Why do adopted children have IQ's that are closer to that of their biological parents than of their adopted parents?
4. Why do fraternal twins separated at birth develop many of the same habits, personalities, choices and names, as studies show?
Politically correct liberals can never address these questions. I get no answers from them. Why is that? Why can't they change their beliefs to fit
the facts, rather than deny the facts that don't fit into their beliefs (aka cognitive dissonance)?
I wrote an article about this here:
Politically Correct Fanatics: Their Denial of Patterns and Genetics
Furthermore, why do liberals emphatically claim that there are no differences between races or groups of people, other than cultural or individual
differences? Consider this: We acknowledge that animals, such as dogs and cats, have different behaviors and temperaments based on their breed and
color. A German Shepherd for example, has a very different personality than a Golden Retriever. And black cats are more wild and independent than
white cats, while tabby cats are more friendly, warm and cuddly. Obviously, these animal differences are not due to culture or environment. So if
different colors and breeds are correlated with different animal traits and temperaments, why wouldn't it be the same for human races? Why are innate
differences between human races a taboo? What's the logic behind that?
David Duke argued that differences in human races is akin to differences in dog breeds in his documentary about preserving human diversity and freedom
Do liberals even care about truth? Or are they all about not offending others? What is the rationale or logic behind political correctness? Does the
politically correct crowd really think that political correctness=truth?
And why is political correctness so popular, especially among young people, and especially among females? It's almost like a fad or trend among young
people (especially females) to hold politically correct views such as "there are no differences between groups or races, only cultural and individual
differences exist" etc. They seem to adopt such views like a religion, without thinking and without regard for evidence, logic or science.
It's really weird and doesn't make sense. And it's one of the reasons why I often feel alienated around young adult crowds (in addition to their
superficial conversation around lighthearted topics only, and their expectation of having to act positive about everything). It's like whenever I
describe differences I observe, they become argumentative, as if I've violate some holy ground of theirs. Very weird.
