The World Is One Big Skinner Box
Some time ago, I read an article about some psychiatrist somewhere who built this massive ten by ten habitat for mice, complete with luxury condos, five Starbucks, a liquor store and a topless bar.

Then he added a mouse. Just one. 24 hours later, he added a second mouse. Then a third a day later. Another 24 hours and a fourth mouse appeared.

This went on for more than thirteen months, continuing to add one mouse per day to the ever increasing population of Verminville because all the mice that he had already added were having littler after litter after litter after litter...

Now here's where it gets interesting. The mice lived together peacefully for all practical purposes. Sure, there was little skirmishes and incidents of dominance but nothing major.

Then one morning, the doctor came in to add his mouse for the day when and he saw something was not quite right in Verminville.

Sometime during the night, the thousands of mice that were now occupying Verminville went to war. They burned down the condos, looted the liquor store, and pillaged the topless bar and Starbucks. And roughly 90% of the population was dead or dying.

This is a true and accurate story... except for the psychiatrist part. wink

But I think you see where I'm going with this.

What do you think? Has our society reached critical mass?

Critcal mass? A little beyond it I think.

We have killed our young, degraded the old, made sport of the handicapped.

What remains? But the flames.

There's no doubt in my mind that we as a species have reached the pinnacle of our existence and are rapidly heading down hill.

The good news is that, for those who survive, things are going to be quite nice at the bottom of that hill....

Centuries ago, I did a paper in college on the subject of crowding and the psycho-pathology that develops.

That cities are predominantly Democrat crime and drug centers is no surprise.

 Quoting: Professor Xavier


There is a definite correlation between over population and
and violence. And the more people there are, just like Skinner's experiment, the more common and brutal crime is.

And while violent crime is much higher with liberals, it is conservatives that commit the majority of non-violent, "white collar crimes such as embezzlement and fraud.

Thought this was fitting for this thread...

People that throw their IQ around like it is meaningful are usually the same idiots that are book smart to a minimum degree.

Babbling pseudo-intellectuals that merely restate the obvious in more and more complex terms.

Fuck IQ. It is meaningless.
