  •  I prefer not to use the term social darwinism (1+ / 0-)

    because ignorant creationists think there is some actual connection between that term and darwinian evolution, then use it to put those evil evolutionists in a bad light. As if a science can be bad; it's neither bad nor good. It's science. Humans succeeded not because of their me-first individualism but because there had to have evolved some element of mutually beneficial cooperation. Social darwinism is a belief in a kind of a culture in which there is little cooperation and in my opinion is likely to self destruct. In this case, however, it actually looks like there has been quite a destructive form of cooperation between the perpetrators, the witnesses and those adults who would suppress this case.
