The list of why Left-wing Statists Social Justice Warriors do not value self-preservation continues. The list started in episode 286.
2. They view others and themselves as individually unimportant and powerless. They know they lack the ability to contribute to making the world better. They see the government as their proxy. The LWSSJW world view is “I can’t eliminate racism so I will have the government make racism illegal.”
3. They as so convinced that it’s the place of the government and other people to provide them with a safe space (physically, emotionally, intellectually and financially) that it never occurs to them to protect themselves by saving money, spending less than they make, learning to deal with other people’s opinions, learn self-defence . . . or to not antagonize people who will, if pushed far enough, kill them.
4. They utilize r reproductive strategy and accordingly place less importance on the individual and greater importance on multitudes.
Both the welfare-left statists and the religious-right statists seek to reproduce in large numbers so as to overwhelm any evolutionary opposition.
As the name implies, r-selected species are those that place an emphasis on a high growth rate, and, typically exploit less-crowded ecological niches, and produce many offspring, each of which has a relatively low probability of surviving to adulthood (i.e., high r, low K). A typical r species is the dandelion Taraxacum genus.
In unstable or unpredictable environments, r-selection predominates as the ability to reproduce quickly is crucial. There is little advantage in adaptations that permit successful competition with other organisms, because the environment is likely to change again. Among the traits that are thought to characterize r-selection are high fecundity, small body size, early maturity onset, short generation time, and the ability to disperse offspring widely.
Organisms whose life history is subject to r-selection are often referred to as r-strategists or r-selected. Organisms that exhibit r-selected traits can range from bacteria and diatoms, to insects and grasses, to various semelparous cephalopods and mammals, particularly small rodents.
By contrast, K-selected species display traits associated with living at densities close to carrying capacity, and typically are strong competitors in such crowded niches that invest more heavily in fewer offspring, each of which has a relatively high probability of surviving to adulthood (i.e., low r, high K). In scientific literature, r-selected species are occasionally referred to as “opportunistic” whereas K-selected species are described as “equilibrium”. A typical K reproducer is the orchid, or members of the Orchis genus.
In stable or predictable environments, K-selection predominates as the ability to compete successfully for limited resources is crucial and populations of K-selected organisms typically are very constant in number and close to the maximum that the environment can bear (unlike r-selected populations, where population sizes can change much more rapidly).
Traits that are thought to be characteristic of K-selection include large body size, long life expectancy, and the production of fewer offspring, which often require extensive parental care until they mature. Organisms whose life history is subject to K-selection are often referred to as K-strategists or K-selected. Organisms with K-selected traits include large organisms such as elephants, humans and whales, but also smaller, long-lived organisms such as Arctic terns.
5. They don’t have any sense of responsibility because they know a man or men will always provide for them. The government will always be there to give them money and resources enough to keep them alive long enough to vote Democrat.
