Ultra Cool, a Brazilian commenter writes about this post: This post is 100% true and this is something I have personally observed, as a simple example, I noticed Whites from the underclass and slums are some 5 times more likely to be low functioning sociopaths than working class Whites, this difference can’t be pinned down to genes because these two groups of Whites are virtually the same in genetic terms.
Good environments, like those that teach altruism and self-control, can make genetically disadvantaged people behave much better than they normally would, bad environments, like those that glorify sociopathy and hedonism, can make genetically advantaged people behave much worse than they normally would.
Exactly, and it is here that hereditarianism falls flat on its face. What turned the uncivilized monsters in Africa into something that looked more or less like civilized US Whites? Culture. And if you see the way these Blacks used to behave in Africa, where to me they were barely even human (unless the natural state of man is utter savagery), and how Blacks transformed from the lowest of brutal savages to people who had at least the basic accouterments of a civilized Western culture, the change within a few hundred years was nothing short of breathtaking.
We all have potentials in us, potentials for savagery ranging down to the utter baseness of raw animals all the way up to possibly something near the Renaissance Men of a few centuries past or at least a raw approximation of that. These potentials are brought out or suppressed by…guess what?
Culture. Culture culture culture culture culture.
Culture is the key that opens or shuts the locks on our genes. And I do want you to think about that sentence.
