The reality of genetic determinism is settling in again after two millennia of denial:
An Israeli start-up says it can take one look at a personâ€™s face and realize character traits that are undetectable to the human eye.
Faception said itâ€™s already signed a contract with a homeland security agency to help identify terrorists. The company said its technology also can be used to identify everything from great poker players to extroverts, pedophiles, geniuses and white collar-criminals.
â€œWe understand the human much better than other humans understand each other,â€ said Faception chief executive Shai Gilboa. â€œOur personality is determined by our DNA and reflected in our face. Itâ€™s a kind of signal.â€
Since the rise of the forces that culminated in Athenian democracy and slow collapse, the West has been obsessed with a single idea: equality, or the notion that people are basically the same “inside” (intelligence/character) and therefore, that all behaviors except crimes should be validated, justified and equally accepted.
The point of this thought is to deny that some are more gifted than others in these “inside” areas. If we accept that some are better than others in these ways, that group will separate itself and evolve further, leaving the others behind. In a society of multiple castes, these will end up being the natural leaders and will force better habits on the rest.
Liberalism of the classical sort, which relies on equality as a basis and the earning of money to identify our best, aims to conceal this truth as much as any other form of hybrid with the Leftist ideal of equality. Communism enforces it; our modern capitalist-socialist-managerial crossover state simply subsidizes it while dumbing down everything to the point where people are roughly equal in their ability to paint by numbers in fields in which a procedure exists for everything. Just follow the procedure, and you are considered in the right.
But all of this was based on theory, and proving notions correct because the theory was in the right form. If we make up an equation, and the math works, we do not question whether the equation accurately represents reality. We see the theory works and by our procedure for accepting ideas, we consider it not just theoretically correct but actually correct.
As more information comes in about genetics, the theoretical notion of equality is melting away. The theory does not match the reality. It also conveniently explains how Leftist plans always fail, and the only solution offered — to increase the power of Leftism — will never achieve success, as we see playing out in the ongoing collapse of our society.
