Epidemics of "Social Darwinism" in America

The racist prescription for perfecting the human race, which is presently
having a major revival, is the doctrine of "survival of the
fittest" guided by the ethic of "Social Darwinism"! That is the
theory that helped produce the Holocaust in which 6 million Jews,
as well as other minorities and political dissidents were murdered
by the Nazis. The Nazi era danger of
police failure to protect citizen rights
, far from over-stating the situation
at hand, is the very reason given by FBI Director Louis J. Freeh, for a new
agent training program that was released to the press Friday, June 30, 2000.

Police protection aside, "Social Darwinism" and the rule of
capitalist power guided by a philosophy of greed, are also public
policy problems in other specific areas of American society and culture.
These patterns, some of which involve direct police participation or
guidance, are the following:

  • The expected
    biological diversity crash
    , involving "mass extinction" of plants and
    animals that is now underway, posing a major threat to humans in the 21st-century ;

  • An
    epidemic of youth violence
    in America, which is officially blamed on
    "family problems" but is likely caused in significant part according massive research
    studies conducted over the last five decades, by the heavy repeated examples of
    violence in
    , along with violence in
    television broadcasting
    , which as one expert has explained, train children
    how to kill
    their classmates, teachers, and anyone else who gets in the way ;

  • An epidemic of
    death by medical errors
    in America, the leading cause of which is undue
    delay of necessary treatment ;

  • An epidemic of
    death by suicide
    in America, the causes of which
    remain uninvestigated (hidden under the cover of silence), although
    experts say the likely causes are social pressures, also known as
    assassination by suicide ;

  • Big business and the elite educational institutions that help to
    design their strategies are engaged in the
    guided evolution of e-culture
    by an ethic of centralized control and greed.
    This could habituate the public to an irrecoverable, debilitating pattern
    using the sophisticated techniques of game theory and equilibrium selection
    made famous by the man with "A Beautiful Mind," John F. Nash, Jr., who
    won the 1994 Nobel Prize in Economics after recovering from a 30-year fall
    into chronic schizophrenia.

  • The core ideals-in-use of the American Judiciary and legal systems are (and
    have always been with rare exception) governed by the doctrine of
    - the will of the stronger, which is another variation of
    Social Darwinism
    - the survival of the fittest.

CyberspaceCapital has posted two essays that help to clarify these dangers
and alternative strategies that can overcome them:

  1. Corrupted by Fear
    , written by Aung San Suu Kyi, the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize
    Laureate, explains how fear of the structures of tyranny is itself the primary
    problem giving rise to corrupt political power.

  2. Assassination by Suicide: I. The betrayal of capitalism
    , written by Vigdor
    Schreibman, is a personal odyssey that shatters the present promises of the
    Information Age and the myths of American democracy while also opening spectacular
    new opportunities for genuine progress.
