Muscularity and attractiveness as predictors of human egalitarianism

#1 von Markus , 05.05.2017 16:34

Je größer und muskulöser ein Mensch um so eher kann er für sich selber und die Seinen sich sorgen. Und um so weniger ist er auf ein soziales, egalitäres Netz besorgt ("Nanny Staat", Sozialstaat). Dass die "physiical worst generation who has ever faced the planet" zu immer mehr Kollektivismus tendiert und dafür immer mehr ihrer von den Vorfahren teuer erkauften Freiheiten bereits ist aufzugeben ist also kein Zufall sondern das Ergebnis unserer "western civilisation" und der durch ihren Lifesytle begründeten, inhärenten, zunehmenden Krankheiten... Christian Zippel hatte Recht.

Abstract
In ancestral human environments, muscularity and height (in males) and physical attractiveness (in both sexes) would theoretically have correlated positively with one’s social status, and thus with one’s ability to benefit from social inequality. We therefore hypothesized that individuals who are more characterized by these traits would be less egalitarian (i.e., less likely to believe that resources should be distributed equally in social groups). We used a white-light 3D body scanner to extract anthropometric measurements from 118 participants, and our four egalitarianism measures included social dominance orientation and social value orientation. We found that as hypothesized, muscularity and waist–chest ratio in males, and self-perceived attractiveness in both sexes, tended to associate significantly in the predicted directions with the four egalitarianism measures; most of these correlations were of medium size. Neither height, nor two anthropometrically-assessed attractiveness measures (volume height index and waist–hip ratio), associated significantly with any egalitarianism measure in either sex. Egalitarianism has crucial social repercussions (e.g., taxes, welfare and civil rights), and results from the current study shed light on its origins.

Noch eine Bestätigung:

Weak men more likely to be socialists, study claims

Zitat
Don’t tell John Prescott, but maybe socialists are socialists because they aren’t that good in a fight. Conversely, free marketeers may not actually have a sincere belief in the power of Adam Smith’s unseeing hand - and instead have a justified belief in the power of their clenched fist.

A study has found that weaker men are more likely to be in favour of redistributive taxation. The strong on the other hand, who in their cavemen past had no problems controlling both women and resources they had no intention of sharing,are far less ikely to see the virtues of egalitarian social policies.
