58. In terms of evolution, many GOPers are a known subset of humanity....

typically indicated by psychopathy to varying degrees, with the worst of them often becoming political and corporate leaders.

As an amateur study of human behavior and personality, I suspect they have DNA from periods when human existence was brutal and cruel with survival hanging by a thread. Cannibalism, tribal wars, murder and rape were likely as common as our having morning coffee.

I also suspect this helps to explain their love of authoritarian and hierarchical organization of society and making gods of their leaders as the largest, strongest and most brutal males were dominant. They also threw in assorted gods into that mix.

The genetic factors so beloved to us such as love, kindness, and empathy likely came from better times and mostly from the females who reared the children, prepared food and safe shelter and nursed wounds of the males.

Viewed through that lens, it's no surprise people like our typical GOPers and the UK's Tories have always been among us and always will be until we evolve out of it. Thank goodness they're in the minority.

KY rant done......
