Looks laws it the most primitive form of thinking which states that humans are willing to let good looking people get away with everything and that good looking people have everything handed to them on a plate.
It is the most primitive form of thinking but ironically as the world is advancing the more importance we, as humans, are placing on looks. Personality is becoming a fraud along with confidence, knowledge, intelligence and body to succeed in this world, the importance of looks is taking center stage. You can pretty much never get rich or any success with anything [from academia to money to social life to women and so on and so forth] without having at least some base level of looks. You're pretty much seen as a troll if you are anything below a 5 on an objective looks rating scale in the real world nowadays.
The truth is that if you look like him:
you have petitions set up to get you out of jail and women hurrying to donate money to get you out on bail even if you are a scumbag criminal.
The truth is that if you look like her:
you can get away with murdering your child.
How to average looking people and below reconcile with the reality? In fact they don't reconcile with reality, they contribute to this culture with is becoming increasingly centered on looks. Even 100 years back a man's character was put over his aesthetics but alas nowadays all what you need to be is good looking and everything is handed to you in a plate and you can get away with murder and genocide. Why are we becoming more primitive in our thinking? I think social media has a large part to blame, but those who are highly evolved thinkers like me transcend our primitive thoughts using logic and rationality to come to conclusions and make informed opinions. I guess it is liberating to know I'm not a sheep who allows emotions and primitive thinking to control me but it is also disconcerting at times to see in how much ignorance the general population lives in.
The human race has pretty much been dragged along by the top 1% of the men who were geniuses while the rest of the human populace behaves and acts like primates.
