I actually used to frequent here a lot when it first started and wouldn't tell other people about it in fear of it getting shitted up.

OP is talking about so about a mathematical schematic approach. Statistics would be different, it is a more specific thing. And as long as something is using the scientific method, it is science. So the portions of psychology that use it are science, but the stuff in the OP seems to be of a speculative nature which would be a non-science. So parts of psychology are science and other parts are not science.

Why do men with long and wide bodies relative to leg length (macroskelic) seemingly seem more masculine? Is it the archaic ape look?

Women definitely don't like the roid monkey look because people who have are generally gay, insecure, or compensating manlets, but they don't really discriminate that much between various types of endurance athlete builds who are muscular while still being trim and svelte.

>>14575462
Idk but women are more macroscopic than men insofar as length is concerned. Black women have longer relative torso index than black men, white women have relatively longer torso index than white men. So a masculin torso would probably be meso-brachyskelic and broad.

>monads aren't physical
Yea but they're more closely connected to matter in Leibniz than in Plato and Aristotle. Every single molecule (which is infinitely divisible in his view) has a monad. The others just have "the essence of a human" or "the form of a human." It leads to the obvious problem of where exactly do you draw the line? What has its own essence or form and what doesn't? Is there the form of a chair? That's what Leibniz was trying to solve.

nothing but the idea of a creator god whose existence is completely independent from everything else, combined with the idea of free will and the idea that manifolds cannot be conscious and that every human has a separate soul yet is connected to the physical world somehow, basically leads to the monadology

it massively eroded trust in the government since they tried to cover it up hard but due to the fact its next to impossible to cover it up on the scale meant they were forced to admit it, sure the clean up was a massive success on their part but the fact they even attempted to keep it a secret despite the risk ruined any good will

It was only unexpected because the Soviets were really good at hiding their actual condition from the rest of the world.
This is why it's amusing that commies tell you you're brainwashed by American propaganda if you tell them about bread lines or that used cars costed more than new. There's NO American propaganda from the day that could tell you about these little things. In fact, you have things like that tiny little CIA blurb that the Soviets may eat more calories which every goddamn commie regurgitates.

You haven't the authority to "settle" anything.

EEFs in the Western part of Europe were clearly pretty barbaric by modern standards with all the cannibalism and warfare, but from what I’ve read you don’t see nearly as much evidence for similar atrocities in Eastern EEF cultures like the Cucuteni and Vinca. They had massive proto-cities, possible writing, and you could probably make an argument for them even being the first civilization. If my presumptions are correct then do the Eastern cultures represent a kinder, saner side of the EEFs, and what resulted in such a seemingly huge cultural shift between the two spheres?

The 1828 presidential election, which saw the revival of the two party system, was the most hotly contested and nasty one since 1800. Andrew Jackson ran for president a second time on charges that he'd been robbed of a legitimate victory four years earlier and denouncing the "Tariff of Abominations" against unpopular incumbent John Quincy Adams. Although Adams himself was too highbrow to engage in personal attacks, his supporters had no qualms about charging Jackson with being a blood-stained barbarian who hanged prisoners-of-war without trial during campaigns in the War of 1812 and in Florida. Jackson supporters accused Adams of being an aristocratic elitist--("a man who fights versus a man who writes") and of several corrupt activities including charges that he had acted as a pimp while serving as US ambassador to Russia and had procured prostitutes for the tsar. Adams had also purchased a billiard table and a chess set for the White House, paid for out of his own pocket, which Jackson supporters magnified into an entire gambling parlor.

Worse than that were charges that Jackson had engaged in a bigamous marriage to his wife Rachel, as she had left her first husband and married him before the divorce was finalized. Rachel had not wanted to go to Washington DC or serve as First Lady, but she was spared from this when she passed away at the end of the year from a stroke. Jackson was heartbroken at her death and blamed his political enemies for it.

When the electoral votes were counted in December, Jackson had buried Adams in a huge landslide with 178 electoral votes to 83 and 55% of the popular vote to 44%. Adams only carried the traditional Federalist strongholds in the Northeast.
>>
Jackson was a tyrant who destabilized the economy, illegally deported Indians, and promoted the corrupt spoils system.
>>
>>14577058
Revival? Um. No.
>>
the Democrat Party in this time was well along the way of establishing corrupt immigrant-driven political machines in the Northeast
>>
Adams was a decent President but there wasn't anyone the Federalists could've run at this point to compete with Andrew Jackson. Jackson was just way too popular.

Very simply put it was an evolutionarily advantageous ideology. As I stated in the OP it had the right secret sauce to keep people brutalized, in check, and breeding copiously. Thus it endured and spread until the elites threw up their hands and accepted it.
