Social Darwinism Lamented

British author, Dennis Sewell explains the dark heritage of social Darwinism in a short interview in Time Magazine. I like his attitude. He wrote an article recently called "Darwin's Children" in a British newspaper, which was linked here.

I don't quite agree with his vague thought process . . .when he is asked how Darwinism benefits humanity his answer is quite premature-he down plays it relevance in its grand perspective of things- rather he keeps it on the small scale. he compares its weight in value to Flemming's mistake (penicillin) oops. . .he failed to recognize Darwinism as a necessary wave of advancements in scientific achievements -research (genetic) as well as non(religion) . . .so on the large scale of things he missed the mark totally- and that it has its place in life's ever growing fractals where it is seated as a hub amongst many others offering exponential knowledge.
