This is a byproduct of democratically elected leaders, ubiquitous communication, and a soft society. We’ve reached critical mass where the weak have enough bodies and are begging to not seek strong people but fellow weak people. We need someone that knows our pain and is a reflection of who we are they say.
Evolutionarily speaking we are dooming our species and there’s no way around it. We’re so largely populated that there is a social hierarchy for everyone and in it the weakest reproduce with the weakest.
People inevitably find themselves on the outside of the social hierarchies they’d like to be in. When enough people are there they create their own, a hierarchy of freaks. Now this hierarchy has the most influence in our politics, corporations, and education system because so many gutless voters are overruled by a misguided sense of compassion. I will say too, if the hierarchies found a way to knit the freaks in, sort of like how you play nice with lovable retards, the freaks wouldn’t be seeking to cast off millennia off well established moral and social decency. We’ve swung from no compassion to unbridled compassion. “Revolution” rarely seeks a middle ground.
In tougher times the freaks would be outcasts and would either fake it until they make it, be an outcast, or off themselves. That’s a tough choice.
A lesser realized issue humanity faces is genetic too:
Two people with breast cancer in their family marry each other. They have kids and they marry people with a similar family issue. But love is love so let’s marry who we want without looking for more dominant genes or just not reproduce. Instead, we’re going to fuck and make babies and pass a more dominant cancer gene on.
The same goes for serious dental corrections. We’re going to keep breeding with people that have perfect smiles only to realize that both parents had major corrections and those babies are going to one day come out with teeth on their forehead.
There are more but you get the idea.
