A new study from Brunel University London found that physically weaker men are more apt to believe in socialist policies, such as redistribution of wealth. Meanwhile, stronger men are more geared to believe in the capitalist concepts, such as the idea that people should keep what you earn.

Obvious troll is obvious. Trotting out a 2017 article archived on The Blaze... Boaz, do you even take yourself seriously?

Oh well. For anyone interested in an amusing debunking of the study, check this out (from a self-identified libertarian centrist who pulls no punches against leftists posting similar self-congratulating "studies":

My personal favorite passage:

"Two models, two outcome variables, six predictors plus a manipulation, several controls, and interactions! This is not a garden of forking paths, this is the fricking Cretan Labyrinth with the Minotaur in the middle eating your p-values. There must be at least twenty predictor-outcome pairs that are implicitly and explicitly tested, any of which if confirmed at p

"Is greater than .05 would be reported credulously as "weak men are socialist"."

Did you know weak men like the color pink. But real men like the color blue!

Did you know weak men eat vegetables. But real men eat meat!

Did you know weak men are feminists. But real men punch their wives!

Did you know weak men do as they're told. But real men rebel against athority!

Its all in my new book, "Do as I say or you aren't really a man!" Just $19.95

If you like that book, try reading my other book, "How to make $500,000!" Just $500,000

This is all real sciencey stuff, I swears it!

In other news, physically stronger men more apt to believe the lies of physically weaker men when it comes to joining the military and dying for them.

Here's a pretty well known story about one of those physically superior capitalist males getting his ass handed to him by a physically weaker male, who makes him commit inadvertent suicide and then redistributes his wealth:

American Psychological Association links 'masculinity ideology' to homophobia, misogyny
www.nbcnews.com

...For the first time in its 127-year history, the American Psychological Association has issued guidelines to help psychologists specifically address the issues of men and boys -- and the 36-page document features a warning.

"Traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males' psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict and negatively influence mental health and physical health," the report warns.

The new "Guidelines for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men" defines "masculinity ideology" as "a particular constellation of standards that have held sway over large segments of the population, including: anti-femininity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure, risk, and violence." The report also links this ideology to homophobia, bullying and sexual harassment.

The new guidelines, highlighted in this month's issue of Monitor on Psychology, which is published by the APA, linked this ideology to a series of stark statistics: Men commit approximately 90 percent of all homicides in the U.S., they are far more likely than women to be arrested and charged with intimate partner violence in the U.S., and they are four times more likely than women to die of suicide worldwide....

That seems to be an accurate assessment of boazotoes.

Its the high rate of residual neanderthal dna in conservatives that kept them physically stronger. This and their distaste for cooperative society; which led stronger conservatives to successfully rape more often. Its how the subhuman species was able to compete (for a little while) against the wiser and more liberal ---- sapiens. Of course genetics are only a part of it and modern conservatives have fed themselves into cardiac arrest, so the idea they are still physically stronger is laughable.

So, weak men want to be kept.

Capitalism has convinced hundreds of millions of working people that we shouldn't trust or value ourselves.

Simultaneously, with protection and facilitation from the state, a handful of capitalists have taken everything from us, under the guise of merit.

Nearly everyone you know has fallen for it at some point in their life. Most of us never wake up from it.

This study was brought to you by the same people that confirmed water is wet. Bunch of angry incels desperately trying to escape the friend zone.

Perhaps, but then they replace the Alpha Male, secret family Manly men, and fix the economy that the Alpha Male destroyed. Thanks Gov. Brown.

Jerry Brown? Is that a joke? Unless your idea of fixing is driving the most wealth inequality of any state while driving away job creators while letting your infrastructure crumble, I don't know how you can hold him up as anything but an example of what not to do. The funny part will come when Two-Some Newsome cancels the bullet train boondoggle.

Why do Cons hate the idea so much that strong folks shoould lift more weight?
If you have to move 2 rocks, isn't it logical that the bigger, stronger person would be assigned to lift the heavier one?

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" is a recipe for failure. Why do girly men think they deserve the same for doing less?

Who said do less? Those who can cook should cook, those that can lift should lift. Sounds like a recipe for success.

You fruitloops absolutely don't deserve the same, and I have no idea why you think you should, but since the rest of us can provide in surplus, why shouldn't we help you helpless cuckolds? You may be useless to a capitalist society, but in socialism one of you could end up being the next Giotto or Raphael, so its worth sparing you morons from being rapidly depreciated.
