The effect of male height on male outcomes is fairly well documented, I think — but ultimately, it's not something that affects political power. It's probably just correlation. People who "obtain power" tend to be more ambitious, height might correlate with ambition, or ruthlessness, or whatever. Who knows.

To explain the title, it's in reference to the Kapp Putsch, an attempt to topple the Weimar Republic that occurred in 1920. It sounds a bit like kaput, which means broken or useless, as well, so I thought it would suit given a lot of our grievances against the prevailing neoliberal economic order.

oh i agree that on the second point, there probably is a moderate correlation between height and earning, although it's pretty hard to control other factors that add to earning power in these types of study. but logically, a tall person might have marginally more impressiveness or a more commanding nature which would affect income, but i don't think this is enough to translate into other forms of personal relations

this might present us with a problem - if and when the b-urgeoisie are indisposed, we may be left with a significant shorter genetic pool, which we would maybe have to take actions against

This is quite true. It's one thing to do it and regret it later another to have zero regrets and support it later.

also not surprising. Who was shortest dictator?

Of modern ones, I'd imagine Franco is right there at the top (or bottom) of the list. It gets harder to be accurate as you go into the past, of course. Augustus was short enough to wear lifts in his shoes. Some of the rulers of ancient China were buried in head-to-foot suits of jade plaques, so I suppose there are measurements of them (I haven't seen any, though). Anyway ... *wanders off*
