From the Daily Caller:
Leftist Norway politican Karsten Nordal Hauken was brutally sodomized by a Somali and felt so incredibly guilty in the aftermath he subsequently begged authorities not to deport the man.
Anonymous Conservative offers his r/K selection-based interpretation of Hauken’s behavior:
Notice how this character is more fit, in a Darwinian sense, than you are, when it comes to surviving a brutal occupation. Notice how his type seeks to engender a brutal occupation, that they will survive better than you would because of the subconscious instincts they have to bow down before evil.
Nature programmed the r-strategist this way. He could never out-compete you, one on one, in a free society. In such an environment, his type is destroyed. But that isn’t his game. Unable to compete directly, he has evolved into a machine, designed to import a brutal occupation, and then survive it, as you are killed trying to fight it because of your K-strategist urges.
[…] They are trying to get outsiders to genocide our K-strategist model of human for them.
A reverse scenario would involve K-selected people welcoming a harsh winter, a condition under which they thrive but the r-selected interlopers are culled. Reader Camlost adds:
Also, collaborators are often motivated by the same sorts of weakness – the inability to compete in the current hierarchy and the holding of petty grudges are often cited as motivating factors for collaborators who are later caught and questioned. Their twisted reasoning is they they’re willing to bring in an outsider to smash the current order if it somehow improves their standing or gives them revenge/power over others that they couldn’t normally achieve on their own.
Anonymous Conservative also writes that those treacherous motivations are subconscious and someone like Hauken would vehemently deny that this is what he’s doing, instead ascribing his motives either to compassion on account of the immigrant’s plight or to justice as necessitated by the K-selected Norwegian’s alleged perfidy such as racism.
The self-deception with which a person rationalizes away his low impulses reminds me of a point that was made in Vaclav Havel’s 1979 essay “The Power of the Powerless.” The anti-Communist classic features Havel’s parable of the greengrocer’s sign. The parable shows how a merchant’s act of displaying a sign bearing a propaganda slogan is his gesture of submission to the regime, yet one that veils the underlying real message of his abasement behind the slogan’s pretty lie:
if the greengrocer had been instructed to display the slogan “I am afraid and therefore unquestioningly obedient;’ he would not be nearly as indifferent to its semantics, even though the statement would reflect the truth. The greengrocer would be embarrassed and ashamed to put such an unequivocal statement of his own degradation in the shop window, and quite naturally so, for he is a human being and thus has a sense of his own dignity. To overcome this complication, his expression of loyalty must take the form of a sign which, at least on its textual surface, indicates a level of disinterested conviction. It must allow the greengrocer to say, “What’s wrong with the workers of the world uniting?” Thus the sign helps the greengrocer to conceal from himself the low foundations of his obedience…
Similarly, r-selected appeasers don’t say “I want Somalian rapists to eradicate masculine Norwegians and their children yet spare me on account of my willingness to tolerate forced sodomy.” Instead, the rabbit displays his own greengrocer’s sign. At least the proverbial woman who gives herself to the conqueror collaborates after the conquest, not before or during the siege.
Here is Havel’s original 1979 essay. Here is my 2016 version, in which I replaced a total of about 20 words: the proletariat-related keywords with diversity-related ones, and greengrocer-related words with office manager-related ones. To uncanny effect, I replaced no words in the final paragraph.
