Just wait til the internet hive mind evolves. A little bit of right wing facism for some genocide and extermination of minorities, prisoners, and the poor. Then they'll wind up the left-wing nanny state factor gradually to slowly erode any concept of privacy, individualism, liberty, or meritocracy. Nobody will know it's happening, they'll all be grooving out to Nicki Minaj, Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Kesh, Katy Perry, Rihanna, One Direction, Korn, uhh.....or watching 'Real Housewives.'

In your analysis, you seem to have overlooked the incredible reproductive advantage of being part of a society that exercise geopolitical might (e.g., US, Europe, Russia) versus being in a nation that does not exercise such might (e.g., Afghanistan, Sudan). I would also disagree with your assessment that women do not sexually favor dominant men. Dominance today doesn't necessarily mean a punch-resistant face, but women most definitely sexually favor men with who are dominant physically, intellectually, and especially financially. Women might coo and empathize with a guy who gets punched, but I don't think they'll feel compelled to have sex with him.

This occurred to me as well. Although it's possible, getting one's cheek or nose broken probably won't kill all that often. On the other hand, getting one's jaw broken or teeth broken would probably make it hard to eat. "Lopsided face" resulting from a good punching would likely prevent one from getting laid for sure.

My Microsoft Intellimouse is about 15 years old. I've got some Sennheiser HD 280 headphones that are LOUD AS HELL and still going strong after about 20 years. And I've got a Fender Twin '65 reissue tube amp that's twenty years old and still sounds incredible. I also love my cast iron skillets. They are probably 30 years old. I expect they will last quite some time.
