Socio-cultural values predict mortality from other causes besides COVID-19.
The author seeks to show that the socio-cultural values that predict increased COVID-19 mortality are different than those that predict mortality in general. This analysis ends up showing that a reduction in environmental mortality is associated with post-materialism, endorsement of political participation, gender equality and social tolerance, increased self-direction, and greater freedom of speech. As a result, it is shown that values that are associated with increased COVID-19 mortality are conversely associated with diminished environmental mortality.
