Shining a light on “movement” pathology.
Readers of this blog know that I am skeptical of TOO’s “high trust hunter gatherer” (HTHG) theory, which postulates that those Europeans heavily derived from Paleolithic Hunter Gatherer (PHG) ancestry are uniquely beset with the sort of individualism, moral universalism, pathological outgroup altruism, and tendencies for ingroup altruistic punishment that leaves them vulnerable to demographic displacement, acceptance of “refugee” invasions, and all the rest. And that contrasts to those European ethnies more heavily derived from Neolithic Farmer (NF) stock, allegedly more immune to those problems, and hence more ethnocentric, collectivist, and resistant to the “refugees.” I pointed out the studies (even those whose data charts were on TOO itself years ago!) that clearly show no correlation between PHG vs. NF ancestry and the continuum of individualism vs. collectivism, that NF-derived nations are also being invaded by “refugees” and sending out ships to “rescue” the invaders, and that the relatively greater demographic displacement in the more PHG parts of Europe is, for the most part, due to those nations being wealthier, more orderly, with more generous social welfare benefits, and, hence, more attractive destinations for invaders and parasites; thus, they had a “head start” on the invasion now afflicting NF areas.
However, although this HTHG paradigm may not hold very well on the societal level, it may hold, ironically enough, among certain “movement leaders” who themselves are heavily of PHG stock, and who behave, within the confines of “movement” activism, with all of the outgroup altruism and ingroup altruistic punishment one would expect from universalists with their moral posturing and virtue signaling.
Thus, if we look at “movement leaders” themselves predominantly derived from “high trust hunter gatherers” we observe analogies to universalist moralist, extreme xenophile behavior. They embrace enemies and shun friends; thus Jews and Asians are HBD gods, or obvious anti-racist infiltrators are quickly given “the keys to the kingdom” (“extreme vetting” being actually extremely porous, in the same way TOO claims that PHG types open their national borders to the alien – thus, outgroup altruism), miscegenating mudsharks are defended, “big tent” strategies are proposed, while on the other hand, long-time racial activists are blacklisted (thus, ingroup altruistic punishment), other “movement” leaders are feuded with, and White ethnics are attacked by the same types who swoon over Jews and Asians. The similarities to the broader HTHG theory are striking. It’s the same basic attitude: love the alien, love the other, love your enemy, and welcome the stranger into your ranks, while hysterically acting out against people who are on your own side, often on delusional or hypocritical pretexts. Does this behavior have a psychometric ethnic component? Is it PHG-derived behavior? Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but it is a hypothesis worth considering.
This phenomenon may be in part behind some of the tensions in the “movement” and this is also in part underlying some of the tensions between Type I and Type II activists; the former being particularly enriched in HTHG PHG types, and the latter being a mix between PHG and NF types. I’ve been noticing this in my own interactions in 20+ years of “movement” activism – these HTHG types cannot be trusted, they have zero loyalty, they engage in hypocritical SJW hysteria, they embrace the memetic (and sometimes ethnoracial) outgroup with open arms, and are always ready to disdain the segments of their broader ingroup.
In summary: “movement leaders” derived from PHG ancestry may be more prone to HTHG-type behavior within Der Movement itself, and are therefore vulnerable to exploitation by infiltrators and cunning yeastbuckets as well as to manipulation by Jews and Asians. In addition, to make matters worse, they are hostile to sincere activists, driving such people away.
Is it any mystery that we’ve had so many decades of unremitting failure?
