According to twins studies between one-third and one-half of political alignment is linked to genetics; that is most of us are born somewhat wired to be liberal or conservative. If this is the case we need to build bridges as much as possible. It’s not just info or culture.

I did infer that he is redpilled on all of this stuff in my review of his book, though his interpretation – like Pinker’s – is strongly liberal/paternalistic. (Which is perfectly fine and internally consistent).
He has definitively confirmed that.
This has created quite the ruckus, with Angela D. Saini – author of ominous sounding books and Guardian articles about the “return of race science” to politics – writing about how this was yet another example of that.
Unfortunately, she has since hidden her Twitter, and apparently nobody thought to take a screencap before that happened.
Anyhow, let’s all wish him good luck in the storms to come. Even if one disagrees with his solutions or politics, it wouldn’t do for the Legions of Woke to destroy the one HBD realist* in the US Presidential race.
* Well, apart from Trump, but Trump’s understanding is more folksy/intuitive than coldly scientific.
