A brilliant talk on epigenetics at TEDx. Highly recommend it.
Epigenetics was nearly like talking about eugenics the last twenty years.
Long after the sharper ones (like most Vault-Co readers) knew something was very important here, it was still forbidden to even speak of in public.
So here we have a privileged person of upper caste (gay) who is permitted to freely discuss something completely taboo to ordinary peasants like you and I. Free inquiry is his divine right as a natural aristocrat, goes the narrative. For a straight man to speak the almost the same words on the same subject is monstrous and would be tantamount to heresy.
If we read between the lines he is talking about a much wider repertoire of gene expression than we have been told exists.
Trust me, this subject is much, much bigger than homosexuality. Much bigger. Once again, it's not homosexuality that is the elephant in the room. It is the bedrock of human origins that is the elephant in the room. That's the reason that normally this is a very delicate subject. Until it is about teh gay.
I think there are lots of people in our society who deeply feel that freedom is for me but hardly for thee. This is what they think our civilization is about. It's all about what they deserve just because and hardly what can be afforded everyone. The Founding Fathers could correct them in person and they'd be none the wiser. Those rights are for people who deserve them and guess who decides who deserves them? You guessed it.
He concludes with the usual tale of persecution of homosexuals - a suicide rate nearly 5 times that of ordinary people! Wow! Must be tough. Not mentioned is the suicide rates of white males with Aspergers, conservatively believed to be fifty times that of any other demographic. Neanderthals are not the self-pitying type but if anybody ever deserved pity it is them.
P.S. To clarify ... As long as I am a straight man, it is forbidden to me to give the exact same lecture this guy did on TEDx but switch homosexuals for Neanderthals. Frankly, that pisses me off. It's a caste system I didn't vote for and I ended up on the bottom instantly by being a straight heterosexual male with high native intelligence the instant I was born. This guy gives the same talk that makes me a monster, he's a brilliant and original thinker. That sucks.
