Women and the Persistence of Civilization

Fellow citizens and interstellar travelers,

There has long been discussion of the notion that men and women would give rise to different politics (there was a fight about letting women vote a century ago or so, wasn’t there? ;-) ) Today Nate Silver, an assiduous practitioner of applying observation and reason to polls and politics (and therefore also a purveyor of exceptionally accurate predictions), has a post detailing exactly what those differences are in our current presidential election. The discoveries are dramatic and reveal that women, literally, will be responsible for giving Civilization a fighting chance at persistence this November. Thank you women. Thank you.

Yours in estrogenic gratitude, M.
