    Strong Men More Likely to Vote Conservative

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/news...servative.html

    Physically strong men are more likely to hold right wing political views because they believe society should be geared to personal struggle and self-preservation, an academic study claims.

    Researchers cite muscle-bound Hollywood action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Sylvester Stallone as evidence that aggression is linked to conservative politics.
    And it may all stem from the hunter-gatherer instincts of macho men - which are a hangover of out cavemen origins when the strongest ruled the roost.
    The ultimate example is Schwarzenegger who went from muscular action hero to Republican governor of California, the experts say.
    Do you agree stronger men are likely to be right wing?
    Yes, a connection between aggression and politics makes sense
    No, there's no link between your political mind and your physical strength

    Researchers from Griffith University in Australia said the Hollywood examples were typical of a phenomenon among modern men with an aggressive side.

    They tend to build up their upper body strength and become subconsciously obsessed with their fighting ability, they told the journal Human Nature.
    Lead researcher Aaron Sell said men were 'designed for fighting' and the tougher they are, the more this influences their behaviour and attitudes.
    Men are better designed to respond rapidly to threats, avoid something that is thrown at them or be able to catch it, and are better at taking a punch, he said.
    This comes from their ancestral roots where physical aggression was used to establish status within a community.
    And many men still do this, believing that if they are better at fighting and look more menacing, then their status is elevated.
    Sell looked at studies from the US as well as India, South America and Central Africa to find that physically strong men feel they have a 'greater sense of entitlement.'
    They are more likely to get angry and then get aggressive and in terms of attitude, they believe that aggression is a better way or resolving disputes.
    In political terms they tend to take the more right wing view - be it Conservative in the UK or Republican in the US.
    The researchers looked at the political attitudes of actors in Hollywood and found those who played action stars were more likely to support military action by the US overseas.
    The study said: "Those actors known for their physical strength and formidability, among them Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris and Sylvester Stallone, were more likely to support military action.
    "Generally speaking, Hollywood actors are left wing, but the action stars among them were more likely than not to support the Republican position on foreign policy.
    "Upper body strength in adult males is a crucial variable that appears to have impacts on a wide range of mental mechanisms.
    "These mechanisms were designed by natural selection at a time when personal physical aggression was far more common and individual differences in fighting ability were far more relevant for the resolution of conflicts.
    "Despite the steady decline in physical aggression and violent deaths that have accompanied Western civilization, the human mind is still designed for ancestral environments."

Real masculine men should have a higher status and should be in charge, look at the mess the metro sexuals are making of the world.

    I can well believe these findings, although in fact they do little more than state the obvious

    Going right back to my student days and in just about every job I've done since, the conservative males have generally been better specimens of manhood than the wet, drippy liberals around them.

    I dare say some future survey will inform us that conservative women behave more properly and have a superior dress sense to their left-wing, feminist counterparts

    No wonder eugenics are off the agenda in an increasingly socialist west.

    What in today's society are worth conserving? When you build a house you don't start with the roof, you have to build from the ground up.

    Society of today isn't merely a refuse pile, it still holds quite a few valuables within it, but they are overshadowed of course by the sewer rats that inhabit the upper echelons.

    Houses needen't be demolished to be improved upon, they can also be renovated. There are plenty of problems in society of today, but much of it is not due to inherent flaws in the character of the people but of design and a product of tax payer money. With a new designer and a treasurer we'd be ridd of alot of the problems that plague our society of today.

    What is cause, and what is effect? Does inheretly 'conservative' minded people seek a life of struggle, or does a life of struggle mold people to a more 'conservative' outlook on life?

    Their explanations for this are all flawed and superfluous though.

    It all boils down to the following:

    Right-wing = preference for hierarchy

    Left-wing = preference for equality

    Testosterone makes you more hierarchical

    Testosterone makes you physically stronger

    That’s why stronger men are more hierarchical or ‘right-wing’

    The End.

    Because oestrogen has a similar effect on women, i.e. makes them more hierarchical or ‘right-wing.’

    It’s also worth pointing out that, as I understand it, testosterone and oestrogen prime the dopaminergic system (which is responsible for ‘reward-seeking’ behaviour) and this also seems to make people more right-wing (contrary to what leftist like to think of themselves). The greater reliance on the dopaminergic system in conservatives does explain why they tend to perceive a sharper distinction between good and bad in the world.

    And...

    Conservative women versus liberal women
