I find it interesting that the psychology professor’s logic is basically sound but somehow decides to become an evolutionary loser anyway:
You may call it foolish, but I for one will not get a gun. I will remain an evolutionary loser and a mentally deficient member of gun world, hoping that we will have the courage to become truly civilized and turn the tables on those who would lead us down their dark path.
Those in academia are frequently accused of living in an idealized world with only an occasional glimpse into the real world. This would appear to be a prime example of a professor who willfully ignores reality.
It should come as no surprise that Bernard Starr, Ph.D, is professor emeritus at City University of New York (Brooklyn College).
