Nenhum especialista em política externa deste Brasilzão daria conta de uma mulher como esta

Ei, eu me refiro aos que adoram um bolivarianismo light na cueca (ou em algum outro lugar de sua carcaça animal).

p.s. o título do post poderia ser: “você acha que tudo que uma mulher negra diz está errado porque ela ‘não tem informação'”? A patota não-liberal adora este argumento, mas nunca o usa quando a minoria (mulheres ou negros, etc) está a seu lado. O argumento da esquerda é sempre assim: “a minoria que concorda comigo encontrou a luz; a que não está comigo, é alienada”.

Abstract:
Heroism is a valued part of any society, yet its realization depends on the decisions of individual actors and a public reward to individuals who undertake heroic actions. Military combat related activities provide a useful starting point for thinking about the empirical nature of heroism. Interestingly, if we define heroism by those who have been awarded military honors such as the Congressional Medal of Honor, the number of heroes has actually fallen in the past 35 years. We develop a theory to explain heroism in a rational decision-making framework, and we model the case in which individuals respond to danger to themselves and others based on the costs and benefits associated with acts of courage. We also provide insight into how a government may wish to optimally subsidize heroic actions. We then use our model to understand why the observed decline in heroism could, in fact, be both an optimal individual and social response.
