Re: Bundesrat wants to remove incest law

How would you read the genetic distance of the blue (German speaking) dots in relation to genetic distance on this graph where the x axis is geographic distance and the y axis is genetic distance- I never was that good at reading graphs

Illuminate me with you analytical evaluation!

Of course not- actually he is against a change in the law because of power imbalances within the relationships.
If he had said this then I would have enclosed it in quotation marks. The commentary is mine, thus not enclosed in a quotation box.

Some races do inbreed when they feel threatened by other cultures. Although, as this recent study in remote Swiss villages show inbreeding does not produce fewer offspring :

These can retrace their racial purity back to the 1600's something I am sure the SVP would admire.
By your conclusions the SVP ought to be in favour of lifting certain restrictions but is against

I suppose it's only one study disputing the others- in the Italian region inbreeding does not seem to affect number of births.

I don't know- I and my partner read the graph as those with German-German Swiss names tend to have less genetic distance (more inbred) and live in closer geographic proximity than the other races.-No? Speaking from personal experience I lived in a Thurgau village where the majority of villagers were descended from 4 main families. However my name is dying out I must rectify this I will look in the telephone book to hopefully find cousins
