Why white men are voting for Trump
Since at least the 1960's white men have appeared to be increasingly weak, but many men have been too busy making money and dealing in the harsh world and so they allowed their culture to be increasing influenced by eggheads, to use Donald Trump's term.
It upsets many white men now to hear young white women saying that they don't want a culture dominated by white men. Really? Western women have been generally treated better than any other women on earth. And here is the irony: many of the more civilized traits of Western man were chosen by the sexual selection of Western women. Feminism really does seem better fitted to helping non-Western women.
That brings up the subject of cultural Marxism, which gave rise to modern feminism, modern feminism did not give rise to cultural Marxism. Young women (and men) have been propagandized in our colleges and universities, and throughout the Big Media, to mimic cultural Marxism, which basically rejects real human nature in favor of a Utopian world where everyone is said to be exactly the same, even if force is required to make it so---but even force doesn't make it happen.
Cultural Marxists, modern liberals, and feminists all claim to seek the good of the other, but they are largely ignorant of the fact that altruism was derived from group-selection or ethnocentrism, the survival fact that within groups selfish individuals beat altruistic individuals, but groups of altruists beat groups of selfish individuals. And so altruism evolved.
This is why we need to design rules of politics which organize the state not primarily to transfer the wealth of the people to an elite, who also control the military, but we need to organize around the biological dynamics of real human nature, which remains kin-centered, gender defined, age-grading, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection
So even if Trump initiates a nationalist version of crony capitalism---which wouldn't be good because we need a real separation of powers and states---this is why white men are instinctively voting for Trump.
