DIFFERENCES IN MORAL INTUITION
1 – Subjective moral intuition = Personal reproductive strategy.
2 – Gender differences in moral intuition = Gender differences in reproductive strategy.
3 – Class differences in moral intuition = class differences in associative, reproductive, productive, political, and military market value. (continuous reinforcement)
4 – Group differences in moral intuition = demographic distribution (sizes) of the classes (primarily driven by the underclass).
BIOLOGICAL (EVOLUTIONARY) BASIS
Differences in moral intuition are demonstrably measurable in differences in brain structure and endocrine expression that vary from the female solipsistic and psychotic on one end to the male autistic and anti-social on the other. (Yes, really. See Baron Cohen).
EMOTIONS ARE RESPONSES TO CHANGES IN INVENTORY
Meaning, that we collect everything that we can make use of from information, narratives, to friends, to associates, to family, to children, to items, to physical goods, to territory to interests in private or collective goods, and our emotions merely reflect changes in those assets. (Yes, really).
MAN IS A PURELY RATIONAL ACTOR
1 – All actions re purely in one’s self interest.
2 – Submissive moral positioning means you are open to opportunities and trusting – because you have limited value to others, and are highly dependent upon others.
3 -Dominant moral positioning means you are skeptical of opportunities and have lower trust – because you have high value to yourself or others, and are independent of others.
Powerful people filter opportunities and select the best, and weak people broadcast willingness to cooperate.
This is why physics, economics, and cognitive science are so important to understanding the world as it is so that we can be happy in the world as it is, by maximizing our opportunity in the world as it is.
Otherwise we are continuously frustrated with ourselves, others, and the world, because we wish the universe conform to our wishes rather than adapt to the conditions of the universe so that we make best use of it.
Man flocks, swarms, and schools to opportunity. Opportunities are exhausted. People defect to other opportunities. We balance our self image, status signals, emotional, intellectual, and physical costs when choosing which opportunities to pursue.
Man is a very simple creature.
But we can invent endless fantasies.
