Thinking about: Domestication

There’s a Russian experiment on domestic animals that demonstrates how, over generations, domesticated animals undergo physical changes. Presumably they may well undergo mental changes as well, a theory that Oleg Volk hits on in his post.

Are thoughtfulness, initiative, and a taste for freedom versus a willingness to be kept nature? Nurture? Difficult to say, but it’s an issue also being discussed over at Claire’s blog. And, I’d say, one worth being discussed among the freedomistas.
