Actually CrakrJak, social Darwinism was heavily favoured in America, from slavery, to the actions of Industrialists.
Any system can implement it.


'The way I see it, it`s a spontaneous process in which society selects and preserves the traditions and norms that ultimately enhance human well being. Not an artificial construct humans can use to identify "deficients" in society.`

That`s another problem with the concept, it`s vague, and can actually mean conflicting things.

Now that I think about it, a more appropriate term is "social evolution". Hitler et al engaged in what I'd call "collectivist Darwinism" a total perversion of Darwin`s ideas.

That's because social darwinism is not capitalist in nature. It`s socialist in nature and the countries in which it has been applied have been communist, socialist and fascist. Those 3 systems of government are about government control and manipulation of production.


This is an inherently contradictory statement. Darwinism is all about competition, which statists simply don`t understand.

[quote]Laissez-faire capitalism[/quote]

Laissez-faire does not mean totally unbound by regulation. Simply enough regulation to protect property rights against theft and aggression.

Laissez-faire capitalism, with no regulation, leads to monopolies and oligarchies, that is totally the opposite of `evolution` as a concept.

Regulated capitalism and fair trade lead to better competition and more consumer choice.

Survival of the fittest', when applied to human beings leads to evil


Correction: when POLITICIZED it becomes MISAPPLIED to human beings.

Science does not misapply the concept to human beings. Only politicians are capable of such malfeasance.
