The Politics of Genetics
I am flabbergasted by the number of people who lack the intellectual honesty to simply admit that genes might play a role in determining sociological outcomes of both individuals and groups.
Saying that the differences are totally the result of genes is both an extraordinarily strong (and thus fragile) claim, and one that is easily shown to be wrong. But no one’s making that claim!
Saying that genes have absolutely no impact on different outcomes is also an extraordinarily strong and thus fragile assertion, and one that is grossly implausible given even a rudimentary understanding of what genes are. Yet there are countless people — who by our social standards would be accepted as intelligent and informed people — who actually make that claim, and decry those who so much as form hypotheses contrary to it.
I consider such behavior to be potent evidence that the actor is merely a tailless monkey.
