New Research Confirms that Behavior Is Genetic

New research, widely reported as the discovery of a “liberal gene,” has in fact proven that behavior is genetic after all, just like the proponents of race realism have said all along.

The report, published by James H. Fowler, a professor in medical genetics and political science at the University of California, San Diego, concluded that a gene called DRD4 predisposes people to certain political views.

The way openness is measured, it’s really about receptivity to different lifestyles, for example, or different norms or customs,” Professor Fowler told one news outlet.

We hypothesize that individuals with a genetic predisposition toward seeking out new experiences [a measure of openness] will tend to be more liberal,” he said, adding that this “isn’t a typical gene association study” but a “combination of genes and environment that matter.”

The paper, which appeared in the latest edition of the Journal of Politics, was based on research carried out on 2,000 subjects from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health.

The research matched genetic information with maps of each individual’s social network, and proved that people with a specific variant of the DRD4 gene were more likely to be liberal as adults, though only if they had an active adolescent social life.

Professor Fowler was asked by the news outlet if this meant that “a liberal ideology is genetic, or at least partly genetic; does that mean it runs in the family and can be passed on to your kids?”

No doubt about it,” Professor Fowler was quoted as saying. “In fact, psychologists have asserted for many years that social conservatism is heritable,” the paper notes.

“Ideology is about 40 percent heritable. It’s almost half genes and half environment,” Professor Fowler said.

Although the report was treated in many media reports as somewhat of a joke, with puns being made on the “liberal gene” theme, the reality behind the concept is valid.

Human behavior is determined by activity within the brain. All thoughts, sensations, emotions, and, of course, behavior, are the result of major chemical reactions in the human brain, with the most important “carrier” of these chemical signals” being known as neurotransmitters.

The three most important neurotransmitters are serotonin, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine. Most of the 35 or more neurotransmitters are made from amino acids derived from dietary protein.

Ultimately, all humans are the product of their inherited genes, and this will include the physical structure and chemical makeup of their brains, which are merely part of that physical inheritance.

It is, therefore, not farfetched in the slightest to conclude that behavior, as represented in chemical reactions and genes, is also inherited, as postulated by Professor Fowler’s paper.

The conclusion can then be drawn that other behaviorial patterns are equally inherited. This would explain, for example, high crime rates amongst nonwhites and blacks in particular even when all socioeconomic factors have been equalized, or high Asian academic performance.

The linking of genetics to behavior is, therefore, another advance in the science of DNA which proves once again that the race realists have been right all along.

The argument has been won. Now it is our duty to make sure that society and our political system comes into accord with the scientific reality.

That is the task of the American Third Position.

    I don't think liberals have any disorder. Most of them do tend to be people who have a "We are the world" mentality and wish for that perfect place where everyone is the same and we can all live happily ever after.

    The problem is that such a condition is unattainable and ignores the obvious differences amongst races. They like to think that environment shapes the individual, when we now know, and have really known for many decades, that genes are the driving force behind who someone is and how they are likely to behave.

    Liberals are dreamers who simply will not face reality. Kudos to Chris above who has seen the light. I often wonder how much more will it take before more from that camp start to believe not only their own eyes and ears but also the scientific proof that the races differ greatly from one another. Solid research has shown a number of PC beliefs to be incorrect. It is hidden, ignored and in most cases never sees the light of day. This practice of hiding the truth allows the cherished belief that "there is no such thing as race" camp to flourish along with other incorrect and often dangerous misconceptions.

    It does no one any good to deny the truth, regardless of how unpalatable it may seem. In fact, burying one's head in the sand regarding this nature vs. nurture debate is destructive for all involved.

    I don't know if that is right because I was a leftist/liberal for a while but then I became a white nationalist

    It has long been understood that various mental ailments are in fact hereditary. Now, bearing in mind that liberals left unattended do tend to pose a considerable threat to both themselves, and society as a whole, I’d be rather curious to learn if these researchers regard liberalism as a treatable disorder?.

    I agree with JamesinUSA and would like to add that it is the same in the world of medicine. There the differences amongst the races are even more pronounced, so much so that there exists some medications that are actually race specific. It is the tabu subject that is rarely discussed, even in medical circles. In such a case, it is downright detrimental to patients' health and lives if one does not accept the genetic determinant.

    Years ago it was proposed that our behavior is AT LEAST 70% genetic. It is good to see that the theory has been vindicated, since it produced so much opposition from the "most behavior is environmentally determined" faction.

    It's amazing how most people of all races will acknowledge that athletic ability is often inherited, but when asked about intelligence and criminal behavior being genetic they are either in denial or act insulted. I think their reaction has more to do with 'FEAR' than anything else and if they could be openly honest about these issues they would admit that it really doesn't take scientific studies to tell us what common sense should have told us a long time ago.

    This is very interesting.
