"...competitive variety is an important component in an unstable meteorological environment." It's interesting that female promiscuity and cheating get the Prof. Medina seal of approval as competition plays an important role in sexual reproduction, but competition isn't even mentioned once when talking about competition between human groups, such as countries, ethnicities and races. And it's also interesting that it's never mentioned once that a male can increase his reproductive success a lot by preventing (his) female(s) from not showing this "active behavior" too excessively which is nothing else than preventing cheating and promiscuity. All men and all groups of men who do not actively fight to reproduce as successful as possible are doomed to go extinct. But this is also never mentioned. Very one sided and biased. Thus fits perfectly into our time.
