Is Our Gene Pool Violent?
I often wonder if the violence of America is because of our gene pool. That is, the immigrants who came to these shores were quite a bunch. European nations for centuries emptied out their prisons, insane asylums, troublemakers, dissidents, anyone who didn’t fit in over there — were rounded up and sent here. Cuba did it in the 1980s with the Mariel boat lift. And their legacy in genes is what makes so many Americans crazy. It is said that those who left anywhere else to come to America had gumption, and that that is where the entrepreneurial spirit comes from. So why can’t it be that the bad gene pool came too?
Well, it’s a theory I think about — where I really don’t have a shred of proof.
