    a lamb and pouncing.

    "Opportunity" is the human version of the instinct-driven behavior of the predator. It's modified in the sense that victim is not to be devoured on the spot, but to be exploited first.

    An "opportunity" is an invitation to exploitation. If humans resist the prompt to exploit, that's their own fault.

    "Social darminism" is a euphemism for human predation. There needs to be a euphemism because humans preying on their own kind is really depraved.

    Frogs do it. Frogs jump and catch other frogs in mid-jump.  But that's because they are programmed to respond to a particular rate of motion in their field of vision. This automatic response also accounts for frogs catching swallows, which are too big to swallow, as well as a grass stem dangled in front of their nose.
    In other words, organisms preying on their own kind is really primitive behavior. There is nothing social about mindless frogs.
