Neo-Natal Skinheads?

Neo-Natal Skinheads?

"Neo-natal skinheads, next on Sick, Sad World."

“Skinhead,” in the popular mind, refers to Neo-Nazi hooligans, who shave all their hair off before going out to beat up gay people or ethnic minorities while listening to “white power” music. It would probably surprise most people to know that the skinhead movement began in the late sixties among working-class British youth interested in Jamaican ska music, and that what skinhead is really about is working class pride. To this day, many skinheads are not racists at all, and some of them are even anti-racist streetfighters who battle the racist skinheads whenever they get the chance.

It's still an unfortunate fact, though, that there are Neo-Nazi skinheads out there. It's an even more unfortunate fact that they sometimes breed, and go on to brainwash their own kids to be Nazis too. They even have Nazi summer camps where the kids can go to learn how to be Nazis.

 

Or is there more to it than simple brainwashing? According to evolutionary psychologists, we don't really have brains to be washed, since virtually all of our thoughts and actions are predetermined by genetics, most of which is shaped by the harsh Darwinian conditions faced by our remote Stone Age ancestors. If that's the case, then something in that long-ago caveman world must have created the ideal conditions for moronic, violent, hateful louts to survive and thrive, passing on their genes to others. If that's the case, then there may indeed be neo-natal skinheads, listening to white power music in the womb.
