Offspring of dominant chimpanzee mothers normally
develop into dominant adults while passive mothers rear passive
This book lays open how and why the dominance level
of a human mother commonly settles in advance the adult achievement
needs of her child.
And why dominant successful men in first-time marriages
ordinarily prefer nondominant women who rear "under-achievers."
And why high achievers are the offspring of dominant
mothers who usually choose nondominant men in first-time marriages.
Untangling the success factor and dismantling "genetic
regression" invokes ire or insight or both.
Success is no accident.
Dominant chimpanzee females cannot control their fertility;
the ratios of dominance to passivity remain relatively static
generation to generation.
Dominant human females can and do control their fertility,
particularly during periods of boundless affluence.
When dominant women en masse choose career success
to the exclusion of child rearing, illiteracy multiplies, discipline
disappears and crime cannot be controlled.
Leadership dwindles and trade balances decline.
Commercial, financial and political corruption anticipate
bankrupties, worthless currency and civil unrest. This stage
in the cycles of history varies little.
