The biological basis of altruism - genetic basis - is known to come from an evolved strategy to help other bodies that are likely to carry the same genes as the helper/altruist. The trait of being altruistic is necessary for socialism and indeed for civilisation. The less genetic diversity in society the more it helps the gene for altruism to spread as it means the odds are high the altruist is helping more altruist genes get through to the next generation. When you introduce genetic diversity the altruist behaviour ends up ensuring that the non-coperative recipient of the generosity will win by exploiting the less related altruist. So this way the genetic trait of altruism is lost in the population and replaced with selfishness. Yes it is a "racist" fact unfortunately but if you want altruism and socialism then you have to accept the lesson from this. See Hamilton's equation for the conditions for maintaining the trait of altruism in a population.
Don't criticise the man for his appearance. It looks like the low tactic of trying to damage confidence.
In the US the government is moving to make it illegal to be self-sufficient. But really they should encourage self sufficiency as it should reduce the carbon footprint as they say they want us to!
Where America leads, Britain follows.
