In his chapter on politics, Pinker basically argues that the traditional left is shown by the new theories of human nature to be, well, wrong. While I find some of his arguments quite convincing - "Nice theory, wrong species," (thank you Mr. Wilson) is a conclusion about socialism I came to seperately a couple of years ago - I have a problem. I don't like the right wing. I tend to find the views of right wingers more bigoted, narrow minded, short sighted, etc, and although free market capitalism when expressed by it's advocates does seem a 'nice theory,' the reality is somewhat different - probably due to human nature. Therefore, without knowing that many of the details, I am declaring myself a darwinian leftist. I'll get round to getting that book he mentions sometime. Any thoughts?
