Now that America is allied with Al-Qaeda, do you think it was a mistake to kill Bin Laden?
Does the alliance with Al-Qaeda mean that Benghazi is forgiven?

All of the people involved in the murders, and most of their accomplices, have a self-identified position of advocacy for Trayvon Martin via their own social media accounts. Yet the legacy media, the national press, appear to completely disconnect themselves from this IN_YOUR_FACE similarity. However, the sheer open advocacy of this Justice For Trayvon™ motive is enough to make you look deeper to see if there really is a Trayvon Martin related violent pattern here. If you do a little research, and I do mean ‘just a little’, into news articles - what you find is STAGGERING. These are just a few which are dated from AFTER the trial completed.It's a long article, but it is well worth it. This is a straight out of Hollywood script: a big lie is concocted to earn the liars money, while dozens of innocent people are killed by people who believed the lie.
Britain runs a secret internet-monitoring station in the Middle East to intercept and process vast quantities of emails, telephone calls and web traffic on behalf of Western intelligence agencies.Note the Snowden quote in the headline: UK government officers are outing their own spies. How insane is that? Or maybe they were diversity hires.......it wouldn't shock me to learn that the UK has Islamic radicals running it's Middle East intelligence operations. Then again, they probably wouldn't be so dumb as to reveal this information.
This book offers a scientific analysis of how our two main political ideologies evolved within our species. It explains how the competitive, aggressive, sexually selective and monogamous, two-parenting psychology underlying conservatism is a perfect reproductive strategy for use in a K-selected environment of limited resources, while a more competition-averse, pacifistic, sexually promiscuous, single parenting strategy is ideally adaptive to an r-selective environment of free resource availability.It explains how these two psychologies arose through evolution, how they convey advantage in their respective environments, and how they arise today in response to a society's level of resource availability. It even shows how the emergence of one psychology or the other, in response to changes in resource availability, has altered history.Without understanding the materials contained within this book, ideologies are merely illogical accumulations of idiosyncratic personal preferences. That they randomly assort a myriad of issues into two distinct camps of issue platforms is an inexplicable puzzle. With this book however, one can see how ideological psychologies emerged in our species as specific adaptations to environmental conditions we faced, and even how they emerge today in response to those same environmental conditions.Meticulously substantiated with all the latest peer reviewed research, this is the most complete analysis to date of how and why human beings became a political animal.
I'm not in a position to evaluate the science, but make no mistake, the author's theory is ambitious as he claims it to be.Have no doubt, this is all correct. In fifty, or one hundred years, this would undoubtedly have been described by many others, had I not seen it. The similarities between politics and r/K Theory are just too obvious. However due to the whim of circumstances, you are seeing this all here first.I don’t know why it hasn’t been written about before, but it is my pleasure and my honor to be among the first to scientifically demonstrate the inferiority and danger that Liberalism poses to our species and our societies. I hope you enjoy being a part of this nascent intellectual movement, and enjoy your stay here.
Theodor W. Adorno, Else Frenkel-Brunswik, Daniel Levinson, and Nevitt Sanford theorized about a personality type that involved the “potentially fascistic individual”. They labeled it the "authoritarian personality" based on earlier writings by Erich Fromm that used this term. Because the historical influences for their theory included the rise of fascism in the 1930s, World War II, and the Holocaust, a main component of the "authoritarian personality" is being susceptible to anti-Semitic ideology and anti-democratic political beliefs.
...Soon after the publication of The Authoritarian Personality, the theory became the subject of many criticisms. Theoretical problems involved the psychoanalytic interpretation of personality, and methodological problems focused on the inadequacies of the F-scale. Another criticism is that the theory of the Berkeley group insinuates that authoritarianism exists only on the right of the political spectrum. As a result, some have claimed that the theory is corrupted by political bias.Even though there is this criticism, the left still brings the authoritarian personality up to tar conservatives (there's a new study every few years). Conservatives then spend time trying to refute the study, but the meme goes into the mainstream. Thus even if the r/K selection theory is only as sound as the authoritarian personality, it is at the very least the conservative antidote to it, and yet goes far beyond it, making it a more powerful idea. People are not fully r or K as well, but exist on a continuum, so it's much more forgiving than the authoritarian personality in that regard.
