It is.  However, John is right.  It's what I expect from evolutionary
psychology models.

I unintentionally predicted the last election.  It is to be expected
that people who perceive a bleak future are going to be attracted to
irrational leaders who will take them into war.  I know, stupid and
irrational.  But while humans die, this irrational behavior worked (in
the stone age) for genes, as I have talked about many times on this

Evolutionary psychology is a remarkably depressing subject.
