Human Evolution and Politics

It might seem that your political perspective was simply how you were raised. In reality, that may be true. But, like in intelligence, there may be more involved.

r/K selection theory –r/K selection theory relates to the selection of combinations of traits in an organism that trade off between quantity and quality of offspring.

For example, rabbits living in a world of totally abundent grass will reproduce, well, like rabbits. There is plenty of available food to support offspring, with little worry about continuation of the species. Little time is spent in the realm of parenting while much time is spent in procreating.

And then there are wolves living in a colder climate with limited resources. For them, time spent protecting their offspring from prey and training them to find the necessary resources for survival is paramount.
