Brant Gaede Posted April 11, 2012 Share Posted April 11, 2012 The irony is that the best should survive, not necessarily the fittest, who do because they are the fittest. Since they will, theirs is not a moral issue. The problem is getting the best into the fittest category and politically that is best done by living in a free society. Or, for the best it's a moral issue, for the fittest, sans the best, it isn't necessarily. It's just happenstance save in the case of evil--i.e., the destruction of European Jewry by the Nazis who de-fit them for survival in Germany dominated societies. To restate--"social Darwinism" is a moral lie for there is no morality involved. Whoever heard of the fittest not surviving because they were the fittest? And there are a lot of unfit survivors--of the stress of living. Generally theirs is a parasitic existence, which is not necessarily a denigration, but they cannot or will not create value for trade in excess of their consumption.--Brantoh, that was a damn good one, George Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
