Social Darwinism

Now that you know exactly what my boss, Terry would tell me to convince me what I was doing was OK I can go into a little bit more detail about what he meant from it.

So at this point, I’m assuming most people at least have an idea of what the idea of “Social Darwinism” is but for those who don’t, it is the same kind of basic idea of natural selection in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.

Natural selection relies on the idea of survival of the fittest, where only those who were strong enough survived long enough to pass on their genes that got them to that point. Well Social Darwinism is the same idea but instead of genes and traits being what composes the “fittest,” money is what separates the weak from the fit.

So in this theory, only those who have the money and means to survive will “socially survive” in this competitive market place.

This is what Terry shoved in my head and force fed me while I worked for him. He had me convinced that everyone out there has this mentality and if you don’t adapt to it like them, then you will inevitably become the weak and eventually die off from the herd.

Somewhat Applicable

Even today, the theory makes sense in some ways. I think we have gotten to the point where we can care for each other so survival isn’t actually necessary but those with the most resources and money will absolutely have an advantage of ‘surviving “in this crazy world we live in.
